Daughter’s 25th Birthday Card


My daughter isn’t into traditional BD cards, so I made her this one and she just loved it. J

 Inside:-

Tools/Items:-

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridge – JT (designs)
Cricut Imagine Cartridge – Yummy (background design)
Cardstock -- white (for the Imagine)
Glue – ATG; Zig Two-Way
Rhinestones
Ribbon
Popdots


This is one of the largest cards I’ve ever made.  It’s
7 ½” x 8 ½” (folded) because I wanted the design to be readily seen, not eensey weensey.  I put the card base together w/ ribbon.  Clever, eh?  

The background paper is from the Yummy cartridge.  I call it “pink elegant”.  I used one of the stock images, found on the Imagine, cut at 7.4” and flood-filled w/ the pattern.

Created the various design(s) and layers, using the JT cartridge:-

* Frame:- Image 39, at 5”
* Wings:- Image 09, at 2.5”
* Skull:-   Image 08, at 2.2”

* Chillaxin’:- Image 49, at 2.6” --- added the layer of the skull (on the front page) to Chillaxin’.

Finished it off w/ rhinestones at the bottom of the frame and for dotting the “i’s”.

The sentiment was computer-generated.

Thank You cards

Made 2 thank you cards.  One for a gal and one for a fella.  See if you can tell which one is for who.   J

The background layer for the front of the card was created using the one of the stock photos located on the Cricut Imagine.  I chose what looks like a topnote image.  Layered the owl from the Cindy Loo cartridge and jazzed it up using rhinestones and stickles.

The inside of the card contains an owl frame (p. 60 in the handbook).  I also embossed “thanks” using a Sizzix embossing folder.

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:-

Pop-dotted:-


Tools/Items:-
Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridge – Santa's Village
Cardstock -- white (for the Imagine)
Glue – ATG; Zig Two-Way
Stickles -- Crystal
Rhinestones
Popdots

Sentiment was computer-generated.

Mother’s 95th Birthday Card


My mother turns 95 today!  Unreal, eh?  She still bowls and hubby & I took a homemade cake to the bowling alley for her bowling buddies to help her celebrate.  She was totally surprised.

We're going to celebrate, as a family, tonite.   Another surprise for her. 

I made her this fun card.   J


Inside:-

Tools/Items:-

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridge – Yummy (cake)
Cricut Cartridges – see below
Cardstock -- white (for the Imagine)
Glue – ATG; Zig Two-Way
Stickles -- Yellow (no name)
Rhinestones
Popdots

Cricut Cartridges:
Sweet Treats – 9 and 5 w/ candles
Paper Lace – Happy Birthday

Created the base card using the shape card technique I figured out a while back.  (I’ll post that tomorrow.)  Cut the cake (Image 6) at 7”, from the Imagine Yummy cartridge.   Cut the image again but this time flipping it, so the flipped image became the back of the card.  Love this new technique!

The 9 and 5 w/ the candles (cut at 1.8”) are from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Paper Lace cartridge and is cut at 1.5”.

Stickled the candles and rhinestoned the cake.  J
