Special Request Card

If you're looking for the My Creative Time Blog Hop, just scroll down to the next post.

A friend of mine asked if I would make a card for her mom. She and her brothers are giving her the gift of a new patio, and they needed a card to let her know about it. This is a 6" square card. I first printed a 5.5" square of cloud patterned paper from the Best Friends cartridge on the Imagine. The tree is cut at 5", using the Imagine More cartridge for the green gingham pattern. The table, cut at 2.65", is from the Camp Out cartridge, and the grill, cut at 2.3", is from the From My Kitchen cartridge. Lastly, I cut the flowers in the vase at 1.5" from Kate's ABCs.

To make the grass, I printed a rectangle with the same Imagine More pattern, and then trimmed it with my Martha Stewart Icicle Punch. I didn't have any good paper for a patio, so I searched online and found some free printables at "Outdoor Fun Scrapbook Graphics." I just used my Scor-Pal to make it look like tiles.

Papertrey Ink Pretty Pastels Patterned Paper Stack (pitcher)

  1. Love the card! It reminds me that spring is here! Finally! I am so glad we can use more than one cartridge when designing a card. I also love my imagine because I don't have to worry about running out and getting paper. Anyway - Great job!
