Light it Up…It’s Your Birthday!

I got the idea for this quick and easy card from the Cricut Cards magazine. I made a number of changes including the sentiment, but used the basic idea. Did I mention that I love the Cricut Card Magazine? So many great ideas for using your Cricut!

I needed a quick masculine birthday card and thought this would be great for the occasion. Lately, I have been neglecting my Imagine, so I decided to use it for this card, but you could use any paper from your stash!

The outside of this card measures 4 ¼ inches x 5 ½ inches. I used the Imagine More cartridge to print paper to cover the white card base. The brown and ivory layers are paper from my stash. I used MS Word for the sentiment and then cuttlebugged the ivory sheet.

The lamp and layers are from the Country Life cartridge and cut at 4.5 inches. I flood filled the layers using paper from the Imagine More cartridge. I so love the paper from this cart!

Once again, I used the Imagine More cartridge to print the paper and added a sentiment using word. I love how the Imagine makes it so easy to coordinate papers!

You have such great ideas! I've only been 'following' you for a week (since your "guest spot') & I'm so inspired! (and lighter in the wallet as I went out & purchased some of the cartridges & tools you used!)

I love this card, Linda! Great job pulling out your Imagine; the printing on the inside of the card was such a great idea!

Love this card. I imagine having an 'Imagine' one day, or better still an E2.
