Quick Small Valentine Gift

Quick Small Valentine Gift

Hi everyone!   My son wanted to give his little friends a small Valentine’s gift… at the last-minute, yesterday.  So, off to the Imagine we went.  I had V-Day pencils in my stash and we decided on a quick tag and Imagine More Cards had the perfect one.  You can find it on page 15, “Friend tag” and we added a little heart and popped that up and placed on the tag.  The heart is from page 17.  I deleted all but the red heart.  The tag was cut at 3.5 inches and the heart at 1.8.

All I did was use my Crop-a-dile to punch a hole at the top, ran some white embroidery floss through the hole and wound the floss around the pencil a few time, knotted the ends and trimmed the tails.  I wrote “From Blake” at the bottom.  That’s it.  Easy peasy.

My First Card Using The Imagine

My First Card Using The Imagine

While trying to work on the design team call projects I came across pictures of cards I’ve made. I think I will share a few with you over the next little while. I really like how they turned out.

Up first is a card I made for… you guessed it, my daddy. This was the first complete card made using my Cricut Imagine and the Imagine More Cards cartridge.

You're just my type


Card base is a cream-colored cardstock cut to A2 size, edges are inked with Color Box brown ink.  The pattern paper is printed and cut from the Imagine More Cards cartridge pg. 42.  I wrapped some black embroidery thread around the pattern paper three times and taped to the back of the paper and I placed three small gun-metal colored brads to the bottom left side of the paper.    I attached the paper to the cardstock using some ATG.  The “You’re Just My Type” image cut in layers from pg. 8, adhered together using Two Way Glue Pen,  typewriter is popped up on foam tape.  I used Glossy Accents to cover the enter typewriter to give it an epoxy type finish.  The “love” badge is from the same cartridge, pg. 14, there is another one on the inside of the card .  All images are inked with the brown ink.

You're Just My Type

What do you think.  I fell in love with my Imagine while working on this card.  So much you can do, so much to learn.
