My Cricut Craft Room - My Imagine-ation Monday

Happy Monday,
This pumpkin with his big grin makes me happy! :)  Today is My Imagine-ation Monday at My Cricut Craft Room, which means we can make any project using the Cricut Imagine.  Today I made this card that can be found on Mini Monsters and flood filled with patterns from Imagine More (Imagine Cartridge).  First I printed a pattern for the inside of the card.  I didn't want to print a whole page so I selected the 3:5 rectangle in the stock photos that come on the Imagine.  I wanted the flood filled image towards the right (this way when I flip it over the cuts will be in the right place) so I selected the rectangle twice.  The first one is .8 (Rel) with no pattern so it does not print anything.  Then the second rectangle is sized at 5.5 (Rel) and flood filled with a pattern from page 42.  A tip for the next time I do this is to cut off the white edge on the right of the printed image so my paper starts at the edge of the mat.  When I cut the pumpkin card there was just a bit of the white as shown below.

Sorry for the side view...blogger is being difficult, but I wanted to show that I inked the edge to cover the white and added a sentiment.

For the front of the card I selected Mini Monsters and used the Card Feature, selected button 32 on the overlay, and cut at 5.5 (Rel) in order to fit in an A2 envelope.  I then selected all of the layers which were all cut at 5.5 (rel) as well.  The patterns I used to flood fill can be found on page 36 (orange polka dot) and page 41 (green gingham).

Supplies:
Paper - Bazzill Cardstock (White)
Close to my Heart Stamp

I hope you enjoyed my card today...for more Imagine inspiration please visit My Cricut Craft Room to see what the other talented Design Team members created.
