My Cricut Craft Room Design Team Imagination Monday

If you are here for the  Boy oh Boy blog hop go here: Boy oh Boy!

One of the themes today at My Cricut Room is Imagination Monday.  I just got the Imagine at Christmas and really have no idea what I am doing, so I decided that for my weekly posts as a DT member at My Cricut Craft Room I would be doing every Monday's Imagine spot.  So, for all you seasoned Imagine users out there, you are going to be saying, "C'mon Liz the machine can do way more then that!"  but for you brand new, or non owners, you can take this Imagine ride with me and hopefully we will both learn something over the next few weeks!

Not knowing what I am doing at all, I chose the simplest thing I could find, a card feature on the Country Carnival Imagine cartridge.

This is the final product the card base prints and cuts what you see here, minus the mat and flower on the top right

 The mat also comes already patterned, but I wanted to change it from the (see bottom pic) newsprint to a more coordinating rose print (top pic)  just a simple drag and drop accomplished that!

 I also wanted to add something to that mat and because the card already had "thank you" printed on it I couldn't really use another sentiment (at least not one I had) - but now that I think about it I could have used something like "for all you do"..but anyway, I decided to add a matching flower.  The sizing is the tough part, I had to guess, and make it about 2 3/4 inches, it fit fine.

All that from only one sheet of paper, see.....

 Thanks for taking this journey with me and PLEASE all you Imagine users out there leave me some tips!  Make sure you stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see all the other projects for today's theme!

Your images are beautiful!! Great design of the card, too! I love my Imagine, and I like layering the images with pop dots instead of printing all as one image. I think it really makes the cards pop, but uses up more ink of course. That is my only "tip" and really is just how I do mine.

Pretty card! I dont have an Imagine so no tips from me. I am sure there is a little learning curve there though so just have fun experimenting!
