Hoppy Birthday Card

I know I am beginning to sound like a broken record, but I do love my Imagine. I used the Nursery Tails cartridge and photo glossy paper to make a Hoppy Birthday Card. If you use thick glossy photo paper (I used Kirkland’s professional glossy inkjet photo paper from Costco) be sure to increase the pressure to five and change the paper setting to glossy. Also remember to set the blade at 6.

The outside scalloped circle is on page 37 of the Storybook cartridge and cut at 5.5 inches. Next, I glued the outside circle to a welded card made using Design Studio. All the paper is from the Nursery Tails cartridge. The smaller scalloped circle is from the Forever Young cartridge on page 72 and cut at 4.1 inches.
For the image, I used the circle layer from the Nursery Tail’s baby shower announcement on page 18. The image is cut at 3.6 inches using the true size function. The frog layer is cut at 1.7 inches also using the true size function. I added rhinestones and pop dotted the frog. Too cute!
