Imagine & Cricut Cards

Happy Wednesday, Everyone.  I hope your week is going exactly as you planned.  I can't complain about mine.  There are things I need to do outside but can't because of the heat.  So I've spent my time today making two cards.  This one is made with the Imagine.

Card Recipe:
Country Carnival Imagine cartridge.  I cut the card from the Bonus Section on Page 43 at 4.25 X 5.5".  Then I cut the Paisley from the Icons section at around 2" twice.  Put foam adhesive between the two and adhered to card.  Simple, huh.  

I wanted to show our followers who don't have an Imagine how to make this card using the Expression.  This is the card I came up with.

Card Recipe:
A2 card base
Background Paper - KandCo. Classic K Bailey Stack
Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut cartridge - cut one of the flowers at 1.5", 1.25, 1".   Cut the other at 1.25", 1.0", and .75".  You can make as many flowers as you wish.  I just chose to make 2.  Curl edges up.
Martha Stewart Punch for the leaves.  The Mother's Day Bouquet cart has leaves on it too, so you could cut them on your Expression.
Essentials cartridge for the scalloped border-cut at 1.5"
Florals Embellished cart for the Paisley.
Ribbon with a sentiment or stamp your sentiment on the card.

I had fun doing these cards.  Of course the last one took longer but I think it turned out very nicely.  Which do like best?  Leave me a comment.  Thanks for visiting with us today.  God Bless You!!! Peggy


  1. I think both cards are very pretty, but I love the 3d flowers.

  2. Thanks for sharing the Expression version! It's lovely, and it's perfect for us non-Imagine owners :(

  3. Peggy,
    Great job on both cards


I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
