This was made using the Imagine and the Cricut Craft Room with the following cartridges: New Arrival, Going Places and Cricut Craft Room Basics (can only be used on CCR) for shapes. By using the Imagine and CCR I only had to use one sheet of plain white paper because I could flood each image with a different color or pattern from Lori's Garden and Mystical Garden. I had to make one file for each original cartridge because they are linked to my Gypsy and can not be linked to CCR at this time. There was no "Save As" feature, so I exported the original file with both cartridge cuts on it, and imported it with another name, deleted the cartridge cuts from Going Places without moving the images. That way I could use the same mat and paper for both files.
The knight is made with Going Places and then I used the shadow cut twice with two different fills and hand cut the clothes for him. The helmet is made with an upside down heart with an unwelded square. He is glued directly on the cardstock.
The sentiment is attached with relatively thick foam squares, the shape and lettering come from Cricut Craft Room Basics.
