Calling Cards

Well, I finally made friends with my Imagine. I've had it for awhile now and have only used it a couple of times. I always go back to my trusty ol' Expression. The Imagine just seemed so overwhelming. Not that it was too hard to use. The first time I used it actually went pretty well. I just couldn't seem to have any "imagination" when I thought about using it. I like the images on the cartridges I have. I just couldn't decide what to do with them. So finally I found an image and a use for it. I had to make at least 55 calling cards and the Imagine made it super easy. I didn't have to worry about piecing images together or finding the perfect papers. I just printed and cut the quantity of the image I wanted and added it to my card base. Easy as pie. The best part is that I actually really like how my calling cards turned out. I like the image, the background papers and the sentiment.
I printed and cut the image at 2" from the Better Together Imagine cartridge. I then layered it on top of a scalloped square from Kate's ABCs that was cut at 2.71".  The background paper was cut at 3x3" on my paper trimmer. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the image is pop dotted to make it stand out a little more. The stamps used for the top two words are from Stampin' Ups Fabulous Phrases. The "Inspire Me!" is from the Paper Trey Ink Sentiments stamp set. On the back of the cards I have added my personal information to give out to my Circle Friends. Thank you for stopping by to visit me today. Cindy

  1. Love your calling card! The imagine makes things really easy when you need to produce things in big quantities.
