Pretty pink thank you card made with the Cricut Imagine.

Hello, everyone!

I got my ink cartridges and am up and running on my Imagine machine! Now only if I had more time to make stuff. Stupid household responsibilities and school getting in the way of playing with my new machine ;-)

This card was made with the help of my best friend Joy! She did the stamping and took the photos for me. She is a superior photographer, so these pictures are way better than ones I would have taken.

I cut this frame using the layers option. I think it adds so much to cut it this way and use pop dots!
I used Core'dinations paper and Joy's trusty plaid cuttlebug folder.

Check back in with me tomorrow, because I will be posting even more projects made using the new machine. I have a few more using the cartridge that comes with the machine, but I am going to make make a lot more using the regular expression cartridges. That way those of you who are not interested in getting machine can replicate my designs using your expression. I have a feeling most of you are coming to the dark side though ;-)

Have a wonderful evening!!

Melanie, beautiful card but what about the ribbon. I send most of my cards in the mail which would make the ribbon a bit bulky. What can I use as a replacement. Any ideas?

Susan said...

Beautiful! Love your work!

Cute card. Happy for those who can afford this new machine but this Scrapbooker will have to win the lottery to go to the "dark side". Great machine but way to costly to purchase and maintain with inks. Love my expression!
