Making Transparencies (Overlays) with the Imagine

Today I want to share with you my design project for Creative Critterz Imaginations blog.

I so love my Imagine and I couldn’t wait to show you this new technique. In today’s video, we will be using the Imagine to print on transparencies to create our own overlays. The overlays turn out perfect and look like you purchased them. Complete instructions are on the video.

The card base is cut at 3 ¾ inches by 5.25 inches. I used the rectangle from the George cartridge and cut it at 5.3 inches and flood filled using the Audrey cartridge…my new favorite! Trim the overlay to 3 ¾ x 4 ¼ inches and attach using vellum glue dots. Add rhinestones and a rub-on and the card is done! My kind of card.

I don't have an imagine, but still love watching your videos as I always learn something. This time it was the vellum adhesive suggestions that really caught my attention. I'll be on the lookout for those as I'm not very happy with my current vellum adhesive. It's just so difficult to remove from the backing!
What a lovely, elegant card you've made, Linda! Gorgeous!
