Awesomely Quick Cricut Imagine Card!

Hello! I just got an Imagine machine delivered last week, which is an early bday present! My bday is the 12th, but I had to start playing with it as soon as it came! After working out a few kinks with updating it, everything was good to go and I've been messing around ever since.

There's a little challenge on My Pink Stamper to make something inspired by Spring (which is sure to come eventually!) or something that just makes you happy.
Well, playing with my Imagine sure makes me happy and the great colors on the Best Friends cartridge are definately Spring and happy! We have lots of girls bdays coming up so I made this super easy bday card.
I used the Best Friends cartridge, cutting the entire image as well as the clouds and red balloon seperately so I could pop them up. The stamps are PTI Bitty Birdy set as well as the Distressed Dots gold background paper and gingham ribbon.

This card probably took a total of 5 min. Mabey my quickest card ever! LOVE this! I, of course, love doing detailed, sweat and tears projects, but it sure is nice to be able to throw together a project in 5 min if you want some instant gratification! :)

While I'm here, I'll also share a giftbag I used the Imagine for the other day for my daughter's friend's bday present. I used the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge along with the Imagine More Imagine cartridge for the paper patterns. I only used white paper for this entire project, gotta love that!

Thanks for stopping! Check back soon, I'm sure i'll have lots more Imagine projects to share soon!

Hugs, Kelly
