Cartridge Showcase: Imagine - Greeting Cards Inside & Out



Welcome to Cooking with Cricut's Thursday cartridge showcase. Chef Mindy is taking over the blog today and sharing one of Cricut's newest Imagine cartridges -- Greeting Cards Inside and Out.

You will always have the perfect card on hand with this cartridge! It is filled with cards for birthdays, births, engagements, weddings, and a variety of other occasions. You will also adore the ready-to-make projects and cheerful patterns on this cartridge. Design, print, and cut together to take all of your creative projects to the next level.  It features 50 layered images; includes 20 patterns and a color palette; and contains ready-to-make projects and 10 icons.

So without further ado, here's Mindy . . .




Welcome to another Cooking With Cricut cartridge showcase. This cartridge is full of adorable shaped cards for all occasions as well as envelopes, gift bags, and paper patterns. For my first card, I made this adorable little chicken soup Get Well card.





I cut the card first and then went back and cut another one of the chicken medallions and pop dotted that up off the card. The cool thing about this cartridge is that there is a sentiment to put on the inside of every design. Here is the inside of my get well card: 




My next card is a retro inspired birthday card in the shape of a cassette tape.



The sentiment on the inside looks like one of the extra labels that came with the cassettes so you could label them. I may be showing my age with this one!


My next card is an Elvis thank you card.  I was in Vegas last month, so I loved this card as soon as I saw it. 


I added some gold stickles to Elvis' suit to give him some bling.  I love the inside of this card!  The sentiment is in the shape of the famous "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign. 



For my last card, I wanted to do something a little different.  Instead of making another one of the shaped cards, I used one of the extra elements to make a traditional card.  I printed a square of the yellow chevron striped paper to use as my background and then cut the little fries and ketchup to add to the front.  I love their little faces. 


I hope you have enjoyed my Greeting Cards Inside and Out cartridge showcase.

  4. Hey! I love all the cards you designed with the Greeting Cards inside and out cartridge. My hubby is a designer for Provo Craft and he actually designed this cartridge, it's one of my favorites, too! I love how you pop-dotted the element on the soup-can, that's something that we do when we make cards from this cartridge.
