Subway Art Valentine's Day Card

So, I can't take credit for coming up with this idea. I saw a wall decor sign someone did like this on the Creative Critters Imaginations Blog and loved the idea but wanted to try it out on a card. This was so super simple and easy.

I used the All Wrapped Up Cricut Imagine cartridge for my dark pink color and the Word Collage Project cartridge for the card front. I flooded the image with the dark pink and set my Imagine to print only and sized it to 4.7". I then also flood filled one of the standard box images with the same dark pink and set my Imagine to print and cut and sized the box to 4 1/2".

My card stock base is white card stock cut and scored to  4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I cut the dark pink mat down to 4" X 5 1/4" and then trimmed down the collage to fit my card front and adhered it all together. I love how it turned out and by using the mat in the same color as the words it makes it appear as if the words were actually cut out. I love using this project cartridge this way. Thanks for visiting.


  1. I LOVE this!!!!!!!!! Is the Word Collage cart an Imagine cart? If it isn't, I think I need it!
