Layering Cricut Imagine Patterns

Click here for the My Creative Time June Stamp Release Blog Hop!

I had a lot of fun making this card using a new technique with my Cricut Imagine and the Teresa Collins Black & White cartridge. I really wanted this cartridge for printing the black patterns on all different colors, but today I realized that I could print them on other Imagine patterns too! My background was made by layering the clock pattern from Black & White on top of the newsprint pattern from Vintage Paper.

You can watch this quick video to see how to do this.

My teacup is cut at 3 1/2" from the Kate's ABCs cartridge.

I thought this sentiment went perfectly with the teacup and the clocks! It's from Papertrey Ink, and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
