Comfort Card

Made this card for a friend’s sister, who is very ill.  Thought it might cheer her up a bit.

I had a lot of fun making this card, as I was learning different techniques, along the way.
The first technique was how to place an image in a different place, on your Imagine mat.   I saw a video, here, where it’s explained how this could be accomplished.

Here’s a shot (not very clear, sorry!) but you can sorta get an idea of how I was able to input just 4 blank squares on the mat, making my design move waaaaay over to the right.

When the paper is placed on the mat, opposite to how it was done to begin with, I was able to get the design printed on the opposite side of my card base.  Cool, eh?  J

The second technique on this card was learning how to print a sentiment on the inside of the card.  I now have a template I saved, to allow this to occur on any 5 ½” x 8 ½” card base.  I enjoy making larger size cards, instead of the usual A2 size. J

Imagine More

Firstly, I used this design (bottom), from Imagine “Lori’s Garden”  for the flourish on the card front. 

The Angel is from the “Christmas Noel” cartridge, using patterns & colors from the Imagine “Better Together” cartridge.

The frame is from the “Imagine More” cartridge (Image 25, Layer 1), floodfilled w/ the same pattern as the Angel’s dress.

Hope she likes it!  J
