Mr Snowman

Click on any picture to enlarge.
I saw this image painted on a piece of metal while we were in Gatlinburg....and I loved it.... so when we got back to the room I created it the best that I could on my Gypsy... I was so excited...then yesterday Jeannene gave me some paper from an old Christmas paper pack...and I knew what I was using the snowflake paper for...the background of this card... there are some differences from the painting...the Merry Christmas was all in an arch across the snowman instead of just the Christmas...but it worked out well for my card... then the other day someone posted a snowman card where she had used a snowflake in the belly of the snowman....I borrowed that idea for her...but can’t remember who...if you will let me know it was you I would love to give you credit!!...I hope that you can see it in the picture..I used axles to make Sickles highlights to the letters...this is a simple card...but effective I think...I hope you like it...thank you so much for looking!...

CRICUT & GYPSY
George
Ovals cut @ w 3.61 x h 4.88 and w 3.53 x h 4.78.the smaller one is in front...both are cut in half.
Eye Circles cut @ w 0.62 x w .58
Triangle for the nose (its a regular triangle to start with) cut @ w .075 x h 3.0 then twisted under the second option on the advanced feature page.
Alphapicious
"MERRY" each letter cut @ h 1.10 the w will fall into place.
"CHRISTMAS" each letter cut @ h 0.81 then moved to overlap and welded together.
Gypsy Wanderings
Snowflake cut @ w.3.26 x 4.88 on real dial size...on the Gypsy that is the "a" within the lines and arrow that points up and down.
This is a picture of how my file looked when I cut it.This is a picture of my saved screen with my notes... once I got it like I wanted it I saved it under Save As......I have to go back and add my cartridge notes..the inside if the square is how I wanted the card to look with all its pieces..the extra pieces are for the pieces that other items were pop-dotted from...when I got ready to cut I spread all the cuts on the mat after I had saved the file... then cut... when prompted to save changes put NO and you will save this screen I did delete the card base square...but you can make one and open it as a template and it won't cut...you will just have it as a guide.

This is so cute!!! Love it! Thanks for stopping by my blog...it means so much..really!!!

My hardest part with the Gypsy is not being able to see the images very well until I move them to the mat...and I HAVE to have my book!!! I cant seem to figure out the function buttons without the cartridge books...do you use the books with your Gypsy??? I need to practice more I guess...

So far, the only thing I really use my Gypsy for is welding...which I am so excited about.

Thanks for your time,
Sarah
