I always bake a cake for my children for their birthdays. My son Brandon's birthday is next Tuesday, March 15th. As you can recall, I had mentioned that he is now in the ARMY and this year, he will not have my home made cake. So, I thought I would make a card using my fabulous..... out of this world, Imagine machine, with a "mom" holding a B-day cake. I hope he loves it !!!
With this tri-fold card, I try to re-create the surprise of my son opening the door, and seeing ME with a surprise cake and party.
I loved the pattern images in one of the cartridges, but wanted to use the shape on a different one. EASY solution: I used the cache pattern feature on my machine. I will show you how !!!
- Imagine cartridges:
- Yummy: brown and balloon pattern , mom holding cake, pennants
- Imagine More Cards: Tri-fold base card
- Copic markers to color mom's hair
- Sakura Glaze pen to color apron
- Cuttlebug embossing folder: Distress Stripes
Insert the cartridge that contains the pattern that you want. Select the pattern of your choice. Hold the stylus over it for a few seconds untill you see this message:
- The pattern now stays in the machines memory and can be used with your next cartridge.
- Remove the cartridge.
- Insert the cartridge with the shape that you want to cut.
- Scroll across the pattern bar untill you see the one you did the "cache pattern" and select it.
- Print and cut.
- Run the brown pieces through the Cuttlebug and score and fold the tri-fold card.
- Glue the pieces to the front of the card.
- Add pennants with glue dots
- Cut, distress and glue together two cirlces and add a foil initial to center
Place "mom with cake" inside the card and affix with 3-D dots.
