My Imagine-nation or the letter "D" at My Cricut Craftroom

Today over at Erica's My Cricut Craftroom the design team was tasked with either using the Imagine, CCR, E2 or the letter "D".  I have chosen to use the Imagine.  The Imagine is new to me, just getting one at Christmas, but I am loving how easy it is to put projects together that look great.  Here is my project for today:

I altered one of the included projects, just a little, to make this perfect birthday card for my adult son.  This project is on the Buccaneer Imagine cartridge and is really intended to be used as a party invitation. I cut the card and matching envelope at 10.5, the largest that would be allowed.  I then cut both the happy birthday and rum swilling pirate at 3", using the layers feature for both.  "Birthday" is pop dotted for added dimension.  I cut the pirate twice, one combined and then again using the layers.  The combined image was placed on the card base, then I pop dotted all the layers onto the second pirate and placed him on an action wobble to give him a little more movement.

Never heard of Action Wobbles?  They are little springs with adhesive on both sides;

Here's a pic showing all the dimension used in this card:

Make sure you stop at Erica's My Cricut Craft Room to see more projects today!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin!

Love this card Liz!! I really like how you cut the images two times to give it more dimension. I am going to have to try that trick!
