Thank you so much for joining us today,
for this month I made two A2 (5.5 x 4.25) sized cards using three cartridges:
Simply Charmed, Phrases, and Imagine More Cards
 

My first card is using Simply Charmed and Phrases.
The background that has the sentiment on it can be found on Phrases using the Tag Feature.
It is button 2 on the overlay, cut at 3"
The Sentiment is also on Phrases, button 26, cut at 2.9 using my Gypsy (this has four cuts)
the main image, <Shift> the same image, Layer/Shadow Feature, <Shift> Layer Shadow Feature.
The cute little mushrooms can be found on Simply Charmed.
<Shift> Button 10 + layers 1 - 4 and the shadow feature.
I love how bright and cheerful this card turned out. :)

For my next card I used two pieces of 8.5 x 11 pieces of White paper and my Cricut Imagine.
I love that I can take two pieces of whit paper and end up with this sweet card!


The cartridge used was Imagine More Cards.
First I went to the stock images that come with the Imagine and selected the 3:5 rectangle cut at 6.0 and flood filled that image with a pattern on page 41. 
This actually cuts at 6.5 x 10.5, but I cut it down to the 8.5 x 5.5
and fold it in half to create my 4.25 x 5.5 card base.  
I added the border to the base of the card. This can be found on page 30 and cut at 1.3
The You Take the Cake Images can be found on page 9 and is cut at 2.8 rel.
  I layerd this so I could use some pop dots to add some dimension.

I also cut the Happy Birhday border that can also be found on page 30, cut at 1.6.
This border went on the inside of the card as shown below.
I love how everything coordinates so easily.


To finish off the card I added some Liquid Pearls for sprinkles on the cupcake and also as extra accents on the border.
Easy Peasy!


Below is the entire line up in case you get lost along the way.

  15. I normally don't care for the projects made with the imagine, but I really like that card. It is a good thing I can't justify buying an imagine just to make that card.
