Monday Madness... Imagine That!


It's time for a My Creative Time "Monday Madness... Imagine That" design team post!  For today's project, we are using our Imagines, but it's designer's choice!  I had fun making some 3 1/2" cards using Emma's Small Talk stamp set, paper printed with my Imagine, and felt embellishments, along with coordinating envelopes.  On each card, the dotted border and sentiment are from Small Talk.

 

For each card, I used a 3 1/2" x 7" piece of kraft cardstock, scored at 3 1/2".  The cardstock layer is a 3 1/4" square, and the patterned layer is a 3" square.  For my heart card, I used a pattern from the Imagine More Cards Cricut Imagine cartridge.  I also used Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz cardstock, felt, and ink.  My cute felt heart was cut with my Cuttlebug using My Creative Time's Stitched Heart Die, which is included in the 100% Sweetness Stamp Set.  I added some hand stitching using embroidery floss.


The patterned paper on this card is from the Best Friends Imagine cartridge, and I used Papertrey Ink Royal Velvet cardstock and felt, along with their Beautiful Blooms II #1 flower die.  For each card, I made a coordinating envelope by caching my patterns and using them for a 7.3" envelope from the All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge.  I love to buy the thick stacks of DCWV or Recollections patterned paper from Joann's or Michaels to use for envelopes.  The paper is very thin, which is what you need.  For my envelopes today, I chose patterns that coordinated with my cards, and then printed the Imagine patterns on the other side, to get double sided envelopes.  I love how they turned out!


For this last card I used another pattern from Best Friends, along with PTI Orange Zest cardstock and felt.  Here's a pic of the complete Small Talk stamp set:
