I'm sure you have all heard about Pinterest. It's a great site to get inspired and I was lurking yesterday and saw a card I wanted to create. The designer said that she had created with a different cutting machine than the Cricut and actually found the pattern on their online forum, but I decided to try my hand at creating this on my Gypsy. I started out with circles and starting welding them together and then I had to add a circle in the middle of all the little circles and weld that too so it would cut out the way I wanted. One of the best things about the Gypsy is that you can see exactly what you want to cut and how it's going to look. I actually layered all of the layers on my Gypsy so I could size it right. The smaller scallop and circle was cut using a die from My Creative Time. The sentiment is also from Emma's stamp sets. I am in love with my black and white checked ribbon and it was the perfect touch to accent this card. I topped it off with a button and a little piece of twine. I did the stitching with a white get pen and a black fine tip Sharpie. I truly love this card! I was so impressed with myself that I know enough about my Gypsy to get this done. Best thing is that now I've created this, it's a file I can keep on my Gypsy and cut whenever I want.
Thanks for stopping by! I pray you are all keeping cool! It was 104 degrees today here in Indiana.
We need rain badly as the crops are really looking bad and I hurt for the farmers in our area.
