So excited! First Imagine Cards!

I am so excited right now!  I just made my first two cards using the Cricut Imagine!  I won the Imagine at a Cricut Circle meet up in Waukesha, WI this past August.  It arrived on my door step Friday afternoon and I finally got to take it out and set it up today.  Everything works like a charm!  

The first is a birthday card for my father-in-law, who is the country type.  This cow comes from the Imagine More cartridge and is cut at 3.7".  The yellow card base is also from Imagine More, a pattern base.  The brown is just a brown piece of cardstock.

Here is a closer view of the cow and the one thing I am not sure about with the Imagine so far.  I can see the print lines of the ink.  :(  

For the inside, I cut the cow head layer, again at 3.7" and a speech bubble, also from Imagine More.  The sentiment is a My Pink Stamper stamp.

The second card I made this evening will be my entry for Weekly Challenge #2 on the Cricut Circle blog.  The challenge was to use at least 3 things from their list.  I used pink, scallops, bling, and glitter so I am covered! The rounded corner square and two scallops are from the "generic" shapes on the Imagine, all filled with custom colors. 

The ribbon is from Stand and Salute, filled with a color custom choice on the Imagine. One thing I learned was to do your stickles first, not after if you are using dimensionals.  So my ribbon is a little wavy from the wetness of the stickles but oh well, it's a ribbon, right?!  Plus, it is still wet here because I am impatient and want to get these pictures up! :)

The sentiment inside is a Disney Princess stamp I picked up at Michael's awhile ago on clearance.  

I hope you enjoyed my post - I really had a lot of fun creating these and I am so thankful my Imagine works wonderfully!
