Scraplifting Part I

Don't you just love scraplifting? I don't do it too often but I got a picture of this card in my email box because I subscribed to the Everyday Cricut blog (Thanks Joy for the inspiration!)and I just fell in love with it so I saved it to my iPhone until I had time to make it. It was meant to be a Mother's Day card but my sweet mom was out of town so since her birthday is this month I decided to make it for her birthday.

I cut the flower at 3 3/4" from Florals Embellished and filled each piece with the patterns and colors from the Imagine cartridge Blast Off! This is a 5 x 7 card and I used the 5:7 rectangle that is programmed in the Imagine. I cut the yellow check at 4.7, the green at 4.2 and the pink flower rectangle at 3.9.
I pretty much copied it exactly as Joy had made hers with the exception of the patterned paper and the tag on hers was for Mother's Day. I used a stamp I have had in my stash forever so I have no idea who designed it and the scalloped square was a rectangle cut from the Imagine built in library then cut in half and overlapped to make a square.

The real nice thing about scraplifting is that the design work is done for you and it only took me about 30 minutes form start to finish to make it.

The real nice thing about the Imagine is that this project took me 3 pieces of white cardstock to make, 2 for the printed pieces and part of one for the card cut at 7 x 10 inches and folded in half.

Now, go out and scraplift!
