Card Design: Imagine That...Koalas

Good evening all!  It is high time that I show you my first Imagine That! Digis by Kris project for May.  It has been completed for over a week but I haven't had time to create a post until now!  As my spaghetti sauce simmered I got this post started and then after supper finished it.  Every minute counts these days!

Before I get started, I have some important information about the store to share with you.  Kris has found a way to to sell everything from the same platform.  So regardless of whether you live in the European Union or not, after some serious revamping, the sets can now be found in the same location. now on to my card and the details.  Check it out...

General Info:

  • I created this card for my mom for Mother's Day.  In Canada, the US and 84 other countries, Mother's Day was celebrated last Sunday (May 10th). However, did you know that Mother's Day is celebrated this year in one country or another, every single month of the year except for September?  So, it is always a great time to share your special cards honouring mothers.
  • Unfortunately, I just don't seem to be happy with how this card turned out.  The lace is too close to the colour of the background and I feel like it is missing something but when I tried to add different embellishments, it just looked lopsided.  At least my momma still liked it which is all that counts in the end.

Digital Image Details: 
  • Koalas: This set is just so sweet and versatile too.  All Kris' sets are very versatile.  As a consumer, that is one feature I really value!  As usual, I've chosen to work with the coloured version for this project.  I added faux stitching with a pen around the edges before fussy cutting the image out.  Please click on the watermark below to find the set in the store.
Cricut Cartridge:
  • The shape used on front and its background is available on the Paper Lace II cartridge.
Digital Sentiment Details:
  • This great circle sentiment is from Netty's Cards.  You can find it and more fabulous freebies by clicking HERE and clicking on the freebies tab at the top of the page.  If you grab any of them, be sure to leave Netty some love.
  • The lace is Crafts brand and was purchased at Dollarama. 
    Digital Sentiment:
    • This fabulous sentiment was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  I picked it up as a freebie.  Check out Paulette's wonderful blog by clicking HERE or click HERE to go to the store.
    Paper Products: 
    • Card, image and sentiment base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Pink Buttons Collection.
    • Designer Paper: Floral paper on the inside is from K & C Company Designer Paper--Best of...florals collection.

    Hi Lisa, I hope you are having a good day. I love this adorable card. It is so pretty. Is the pink paper on the front a die cut? I love the sentiments especially the one on the inside. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
