Imagination Monday with My Cricut Craft Room

Welcome to another Imagination Monday with My Cricut Craft Room


I love fall. The colors are just beautiful so I chose to use the Imagine Cartridge
Enjoy the Seasons which you can purchase by clicking the name of the cartridge:) You will be taken to Erica's store!This card is super easy to make. I started with a heavy burnt orange card stock. Then I used a color core card stock in brown and embossed it with a cuttle bug folder. I then lightly sanded the raised embossing to bring out the craft core color. I distressed the edges of the orange card stock and inked it with brown ink. I ran the embossed piece through my creative station and attached it to the base. Now for the fun part the cuts:)I cut the tree at 4 inches but before doing that I changed my settings to get rid of that shadow like edge that is normally on an Imagine cut. The tree is all 1 piece so it is so easy! I cut the leaves at 1.75 and used 2 of those cuts. The pumpkins were cut at 1.50 inches. Now the pumpkins are a grouped item so I went into craft room and ungrouped them so I could place them individually. The cute little squirrel on the stump was cut at 1.75 inches. The My Favorite Season tag was cut at 2 inches. If you have this cartridge you will see that I went in and ungrouped the tag to change the colors of the layers then hit group and save and Walla it is all one piece again in the fall color that I wanted. I used Fall Trendy Twine to attach the tag and give it all a finished look. When I layered the different cuts I used a glue pen for the first layer then I used double sided puffy tape to attach the other layers to give it a little dimension. See super simple card.Now be sure to go back to
