Ok I am offically excited about my Gypsy... it is grand Ok I am officially excited about my Gypsy....its grand... keep in mind I don’t have Design Studio I did but had all kind of trouble with it disappearing off my computer... but I am loving this little machine... designed two cards last night while watching tv... lol...listening to tv... well lets just say I was in the room with my DH.... this is the first one... cut it all out in one cut... it was grand...didn’t use a piece of paper that had a smidgin of scrap left on it!!!....this is grand..just grand... I hope you like my little Gypsy Owl Card!!... I even welded one piece... oh too fun.
Gypsy Wandering
Leaves (12) cut @ w 5.09 x h 2.62.
Branches (3) cut @ w 4.38 x 3.42.
Smaller Branch..welded to one branch cut @ w.2.36 x 1.84.
I welded this branch to the back layer of the tree branch... used the advanced feature turn button to get it in the position I wanted it in.
Owls cut @ w 1.44 x h 1.84 inches I cut one regular cut and two shadows.. The firs shadow is pop-dotted from the background...the second pop-dotted from the first and the regular owl cut is glued directly to that second shadow cut.
Circle cut @ w 2.99 x 2.79
Lots of brown ink..some doodling on the leaves with a brown sharpie.

I love this pretty card!! You always make the insides of your card so pretty, too; I'm so bad about doing anything with the inside. I'm going to need to "borrow" some of your "inside" ideas. :-)
