All Wrapped Up Bright and Cheerful!

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations.  One of my more recent cartridge purchases is All Wrapped Up.  I held off buying this cartridge for awhile.  After opening the box and studying the booklet, I cannot believe I waited so long to buy it! If you own an E2 or an Imagine, this cartridge is a must have.  There are many 3D items but the cards and envelopes are awesome
I started by printing a full bleeed on the Imagine with this lime green pattern. When I am making cards or boxes, I frequently print the entire backside of the paper when using the Imagine.  This eliminates the bright white paper and gives the project a more finished look. 
 Once the printing was done, I flipped the paper over. I chose to cut and print the card at 5 inches (Relative Size/True Size).
I also cut and printed these two layers. This layer originally had a green border.  I did not care for it so I hand trimmed the green border off the cut.
The built in layer for this image, to me, was odd.  So I took a 1 inch punch and made it a circle.
I set aside the layers and cut a 12 inch by 1 inch strip from the scrap of the full bleed. 
Using a scoreboard, I scored at every 1/4 inch.  I folded the accordian of the rosette.
I then hot glued the ends together and then hot glued the center form my rosette.
Next I started work on the center of the rosette.  I used these fun little "Candi" embellishments I bought at Stamper's Ink here in Kansas City.  I added a rhinestone with my I rock to the center.
I then added the embellished Candi piece to the circle layer.  Then I added the layer to the rosette.
Finally I added the rosette to the base layer. 
Then the entire embellished layer to my card base.
I definitely have a new favorite cartridge! I hope you are inspired to play with some cheerful bright colors. Have a creative day!
