I wanted to make a fun card with the fun little tea cup (pg 9) on the outside and the words "you are my cup of tea" (pg 10) on the inside.
I went to my different cartridges that feature cards and selected this fun square frame card from the Christmas Cards cartridge. I plugged both the Better Together and Christmas Cards cartridges into my Imagine and started to play around getting the right images and sizes onto my screen. I cut the card and the frame off the Christmas Cards cartridge at 5.3 (all cut with true size), the envelope is cut at 7.5. This is about to become my new favorite envelope. I love the simple shape if it. After I put the tea cup cut from Better Together on the mat I was able to size it by eye. I selected patterns to fill the card,frame and envelope filled them in on the cuts. It was very easy to select the patterns because I made these simple pattern cards when I first got the machine so I just matched them with the tea cup.

I had so much fun working with my Imagine yesterday. I made several cards that I will be sharing over the next few days. I was really trying to explore the carts and get comfortable with the Imagine as I have had it since launch but had to replace it a few times so now this summer I really am putting it to work.
