Project #379 of this year
Happy Saturday!
I'm so excited! I'm hoping to get a Cricut Imagine in January, and I've been searching for projects made by others who already have one.  A very good friend of mine asked if I wanted her to send me a few cuts using the Imagine for me to play with. (She got one right after Thanksgiving.) I said, "YES!" So I made this card and the one I'm going to show you tomorrow using Cricut Imagine cuts that she sent me. My friends are so sweet!

A2 size card ( 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" )
The front of the card is folded back onto itself to create the Z Fold or S Fold card.
Solid blue paper from Recollections.
Background pattern blue paper from DCWV Winter Combo mat stack.
Stocking from Cricut IMAGINE's SNOW ANGEL cart.


Buttons from Hobby Lobby.
"Peace, Love, Joy" stamp from CARDZ TV STAMPS, "Home For Christmas" set.

Janis,
You did a great job. I haven't made a card like that in a long time. I'm gonna have to do one soon. I've been thinking about the imagine too. Let me know what you think when you get yours.

Beautiful card, Janis. That cute blue stocking reminds me of a pair of socks my grandma knitted for me when I was a kid. I'm missing my Imagine so much. I had to leave it in storage while we travel in the RV, no room for it.
