Monday Madness... Imagine That!


Today Emma and part of the My Creative Time design team are pulling out their Imagines or patterned paper!  Anything goes today, so I decided to make a wedding card for a colleague who got married this summer.  This gal is a little unconventional (she went off and got married in a small ceremony without telling any of us beforehand), so I thought my unconventional colors would work out fine.


I began by printing my text background from the Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge.  On the top right of this picture you can see how this pattern prints on white cardstock.  I wanted something a little different, so I took the aqua cardstock on the bottom right.  When I printed it,  I got the look on the left!  I printed a 6" square, but ended up trimming it down to a 5 1/2" square.  The black layer is a 5 3/4" square, and the card base is a 6" square.


I also used my Imagine to print polka dots from the Black & White cartridge on some purple cardstock, and ended up using that to cut a layer for my car.  The car is cut at 4" from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge.  After assembling all of the layers, I put some glossy accents on the heart on the license plate.



My beautiful sentiment is from the My Creative Time Many Greetings stamp set, and I stamped it on paper that I die cut and stamped with the Fancy Frames Stamp & Die Set.  I love how so many sentiments from many of Emma's stamp sets fit in this pretty frame.  Click here for ordering information.

Oh Katie, this turned out just way too cute. I still wish I lived closer so you could show me how you do all this on the imagine... you are so clever and talented... (you are the only one that noticed my "tag line".. lol.. Liz said something about I should change my blog to "have prius will travel anywhere to scrap" or something like that... so I decided to just add it to my blog.)
