Shaped Christmas Card

I got started on my Christmas cards early this year. Can't believe it myself.  :-)

Anyway, wanted to share w/ you my shaped card, created on the Imagine. 

Firstly, I got my inspiration from cards shared that had been created using either the Gypsy or CCR but I wanted to strictly use the Imagine.

As you know, the Imagine designs don't have the "silhouette" cut that allows you to make a shaped card. I really wanted to utilize the "
Nutcracker" from the Santa's Village cartridge, so I put on my thinking cap (not easy to find usually) as to how I was going to accomplish this, and came up w/ the idea of "flipping" the image; hence, ending up w/ basically a "silhouette" of the front (orig. design) of the card, only flipped backwards. 

Using this technique, the possibilities are ENDLESS, using any and all images from Imagine cartridges!!!  

Because it's a "Nutcracker", I thought it looked cute having a back/front showing its design. If you didn't want this, all you need to do is print another front image and glue it backwards to the back. KWIM? Or is that clear as mud??  This way, you'd have a white inside, along w/ a white back and just the front would have the image.  
Here’s the front of the card, along w/ a computer-generated sentiment. Used Word Art and Clip Art. 

 Here’s the reverse of the design:-

Here’s the inside of the card, where I'll be putting my sentiment:-

Here’s the finished card:-


Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridge – Santa's Village
Cardstock -- white (for the Imagine)
Glue – ATG; Zig Two-Way
Stickles -- Crystal

Sentiment was computer-generated.
