This was made with the Imagine Snow Angel Cartridge and Shall We Dance Cartridge.
The dress was designed on the Gypsy.

There are 9 branches on the tree. I hope that qualifies.
I used Pearl Winter WhiteTulip Paint to accent the dress.

Blue Christmas Card

I made this card with the same concept in my previous post about printing on pastel papers.
For the card base I took a 1" snowflake and 1-1/2" snowflake from the Snow Angel Cartridge.
I autofilled the page on a 8-1/2"x11" pastel blue cardstock. I just printed the image. I did not cut it out.
I created a beautiful background for my card. Next I printed the Ornament in layers at 7". I then layered the ribbon around the ornament creating a frame around the ornament.

Printing And Cutting On Pastel Papers

I was playing around with the imagine today. I thought would experiment printing and cutting pattern papers on pastel papers instead of white paper. Here's an example of what I came up with. This is a pattern paper from Imagine Better Together Cartridge. Look at the neat effects you get from printing on pastel papers!

TIP: Changing Skin Tones On Imagine Best Friends Cartridge

Did you know you can change the skin tones on the imagine best friends cartridge.
The Image Picture on the Right is the orginal Image from the best friends Cartridge.
The Image On The Left Has been altered using the edit feature.
What you need to do is edit the full body image and chose the skin color you want from the color wheel.
This will give you a solid color (in this case a peach flesh tone.) After Printing and Cutting you can get face stamps from peachykeen.com and stamp the face of your choice on that image.
This can be done with any skin color you chose.

                                Left Image is Altered skin tone.
                                Right Image is Original from the cartridge
