Here is my project for our red and green challenge:

I decided to use my Imagine to make my project as this is my newest toy and I can't stop playing with it! I used the Snow Angel Imagine cartridge for this card. Some of the details on this card won't convey in the photo, however I will tell you about all the little things I did to make this card come together. I printed the deer and Christmas tree in layers and assembled all the pieces together. I also printed one of the ornaments from the cartridge as well. I then printed a piece of one of the decorative papers from the cartridge. Everything was printed on Bazzill Simply Smooth 12x12 in white. For the card base I cut a piece of the printed paper from the Imagine and and piece of vellum cut to size and layered that on top of the card front. I then took a piece of 1/2" Scor Tape and laided that over where the two papers met. Once that was in place, I removed the covering on the Scor Tape and sprinkled glitter onto it and burnished it with my fingertip. (I often use this technique when I don't feel like messing around with ribbon.) I then attached all my card elements to the front of my card. For my final touches I used icicle stickles on the tree, I used my copic spica markers on the ornaments on the tree and the eye of the deer and the deer's ear, and I used my Gelly Roll Stardust glitter pen to highlight some of the details on the ornament/sentiment. I also used my WRMK chomper to round the corners. This is a great tool and everyone should have one! I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy card. And please don't forget to leave a comment and tell me your favorite Holiday movie for a chance to win the Xyron 150 in Zebra print!
