It's a Girl! - A shape card using the Imagine

A young girl that I care very much for (she is seriously such a great girl!) recently had her first baby, at nearly the exact same time in her life that I had my first daughter.  I met her when she was in high school and I was the dance team coach in the same school district. I no longer live by her so I wanted to send her something to congratulate her.  I packed a box of presents and made this card for her.

I printed the baby dress from Nursery Tails at 5".  I then turned my Imagine to Cut Only and cut another one from white paper at the same size.  This gave me the printed front of my card and a white side for the back.  This is a great way to make a shape card until ProvoCraft is able to make an update that allows us to weld shapes together.

I printed another of the pocket by using the layers option of the Imagine.  I then printed a tiny little tag at 1".  I popped up the pocket and slipped the tag in underneath. I also printed another lamb just for fun.

The sentiment I stamped on the inside:

And here is a picture of the back.  I adhered the sleeve and side of one side of the dress together and scored it so that it would open nicely.

I hope you are all having a great week and that you enjoy the upcoming weekend!  Happy Mother's Day to all of you mommies out there!
