I'm not a card maker by any means, but I'm telling you... The Cricut Imagine has opened up my eyes and seriously has made me think twice about creating cards.. So, with that said, Us girls over at Whimsical Designs (formerly known as Whimsical Wednesdays) are having out Card challenge (Add texture- any theme goes) post today and yes, I have decided to join the card team.. gulp!! LOL
Here is my very first card I have created as my design team project for Whimsical Designs.. Be gentle with me..LOL I did cheat just a little bit, by browsing around some card maker magazine for inspiration.. The design of this card is my own, but its as if I followed a sketch and I did scraplift the recipe cards..LOL..
Let me tell you how much I love my Imagine, I loved it a lot before but now, I love it even more.. I created this card fully with the images and colors from the Kate's Kitchen Imagine Cartridge. I did however, Use George and Basic Shapes and From My Kitchen cart as well..
Best feature ever on the Imagine, is to add the imagine cart and a regular cart into the imagine at the same time and this way, you can cut what ever shape in what ever color or pattern you want that is on the Imagine cartridge..
The green embossed base is a rectangle cut from the George and Basic Shapes cart, I just colored it with the green from the Kate's Kitchen Imagine cart, print and cut.. same thing with the recipe cards, colored the recipe cards with a brown from the Kate's Kitchen Cart, print and cut.. Super simple and love that the colors all match.
Here is the inside of the card:
Yes, its a Lipton tea bag...LOL
for one, I love that the yellow matches the color scheme and two, we don't drink any fancy tea in my house..We're all coffee lovers :)
