Imagine Monday


This is my favorite day, I love my Imagine machine.  
I recently used my Cricut rewards points and joined the Cricut circle so I could get the Quilted Christmas cartridge.  I am in love with this cartridge!! 
The cuts are gorgeous!
AND since it's only 3 months until Christmas, those of us who make our cards we better get started!
 So I used the Snow angel Imagine cartridge to print the patterns and the Quilted Christmas for the cuts.
 Very simple yet very stunning cards.  I played around with several different embellishments and finally decided to only trace the inner cuts with my glitter gel pen. 
 I love anything that has to do with Nativity scenes so I used 2 of the cards depicting it.  
 And for a fun card, I used the cool polar bear, there is a whole section of different animals with the cut outs, very Scandinavian I think.
 I mounted Mr Bear on an action wobble, you can see him wiggle here.  I kept this card simple too by just adding a strip of black grosgrain ribbon across the top.  
I think the patterns on these cards are so busy, simple is better.
Thanks for stopping by today,

Love 'em! The 1st one is my favorite (red/green) & of course you had to make the bear wobble! :-) Sounds like your new cartridge is great.

Very unique look that you have achieved with your card. I like the pink with the green. I like that you traced the outlines.

Simple elegance, that's what I thought of when I saw these. Very nice.
