A Little Birdie Told Me Cricut Imagine Card with Videos!


WOW!  This was one of the easiest cards I have ever made!  I used the new Cricut Imagine Machine and cut out the bird, branch, frame with scallopy edges and blue background at 4".  It took about 3 minutes!  Card ends up sized at 4-1/4" x 6".


I added some pen marks on the bird and branch.  The stitching on the frame printed out on the image.  Then I popdotted the bird.  I also inked edges throughout.


I added the rest of the sentiment to the inside:


Stamp sentiment is from Darcie's Stamps and cardstock is from Core'dinations. Ribbon and button from Papertrey Ink.

Below is a video showing how we made this using the new Cricut Imagine Machine!

jennydecuir said...

Cute card! Question: Do the carts for the Imagine work in the other machines?

Gail said...

I am new to Cricut and am waiting for my DS then I see this post with video instructions on the Imagine! Which I have to watch to see how you made your darling card in just 3 minutes. Thanks for the inspiration and enabeling post :)

Christine said...

AWESOME!!! I am so excited I wish I could play with one too.

Question so how about if we have the patterned paper already I am guessing we would have to use only white all the time. We would not be able to cut the bird out of a patterned paper I already had?

Thank you!

American Woman said...

This is such a cute Birdie card; and I watched the process using the Imagine video. I dunno, maybe I will have to use my Lipsticked Pig bank money for an Imagine, once I get enough saved. Thanks.

1harperpooh said...

Nice card. Not enough to make me want to jump at the Imagine. Way too expensive.

Susan from SC said...

OH MY GOSH... I'm SO jealous! I really want a Cricut Imagine. I have a BIG birthday coming up in November... I'm hoping my family decides that I deserve an Imagine!! :)

Wow I'm thrilled to see it at work from start to finish. Thanks for showing us. Would this be more of an "addition" to using the Expression or would it be a total replacement? I don't think I would want to part with my Big Bug, but would love another awesome tool and option like this luxury.

pcrusberg said...

Wow, that looks so easy! Thanks.

The card is cute, but the Imagine took most of the fun out of the creating for me. I would feel like Provo designed the card, not me. I love my paper and hunt for the perfect color, stamps, patterns and ink. I will say chances are very slim that I will ever puchase this machine. I love the adventure of designing too much.

rebecca_geile said...

This is so cute!

JoAnn said...

love this. I said it would be a long time before I got one but every time I see it I want it more. I do have a question. If you wanted to use pattern paper, could you? Or do you have to use white and let it do the coloring? Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more projects in the future.

I love this machine, wish I could afford it. Love your bird card too adorable! Thanks for the chance to win. don't have the haunting cart but it's on my list would really be too cool to win one!

Stop tempting me so much! I already want an imagine...my wallet, however, is screaming NO at me. Will have to wait and save. Maybe I will win the lottery, oh yeah I have to start playing the lottery :)
