Continuing from yesterday’s posts, I made a couple of cute thank you cards.  I used the Imagine More Cartridge to make the focal die cuts.  The first one is called Merci Bear-Coup.  I added flock to the bear to make him look furry, liquid pearls for added detail and ribbon to finish it off.

the card measures 5 X 5 square.

 

The second thank you card is called Thanks a latte.  It is a much smaller card measuring 3 3/4 X 5 inches.  To make the words and the cup stand out I embossed with clear embossing powder.  Unfortunately it is hard to see the detail of the embossing.  Guess I’ll have to figure out how to take a better picture.  More to learn!  Stitching was done by pen to outline the base of the card.  To finish I added liquid pearls and ribbon.

A great card to give to a friend

Tomorrow I’ll post the friendly note cards!  Thanks for looking!

Happy Bird Day!

I’ve been experimenting with my Cricut Imagine this last week and have made several new cards. While I was playing, I cut out several images from the Imagine More Cards cartridge. Of course I had to print and cut out all the layers and put them together. At first I thought I would just save the completed die cuts for when I needed them but after thinking about it, I decided that I would either lose or forget where I put them. At any rate, I decided that in order to not lose them, I had better figure out how to use them. Here is the first card,

I was really pleased with the color and thought the little bird was quite adorable. The card is 51/2 X 4 inches. I cut the mat at 5 X 3 3/4, added the ribbon, bow and a few rhinestones to glitter it up!

The second card is also a birthday card. I layered the die cut then pop dotted the die cut for dimension. I had to search my stash to find the right paper for the mat, rounded the corners and added liquid pearls to complete the card. The card measures 5 1/2 X 4 inches.

Thanks for looking! More to come this week!
