Noel (Shaped Card) for The Gypsy Spot

Designed by Jeannie Phillips - Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.

Over at The Gypsy Spot this week we were to design a Christmas Card... this was in my head a couple of days and I was really excited when it turned out right "in" paper.... I must admit it did take me some time to get everything in all the layers lined up just right...but the effort was worth it.... I used the page feature on this card to line everything up just right...to get the photos of each page all I had to do was use the "eye" feature on the Gypsy that shows how the page is going to cut...although the inside "looks" really simple... it was a little complicated when I was creating it so I am extra proud of the inside... Be sure and hop on over to The Gypsy Spot and see what the other Design Team members have created this week... I am just so excited!... Thank you so much for looking!... Merry Christmas Everybody!!... Hugs, Jeannie

CRICUT & GYPSY
Because of all the welding I will not be including Cricut cuts for this card.
The NOEL Sizes

Plantin Schoolbook
"n" cut @ w 2.99 x h 5.96 its shadow is cut @ w 3.21 x h 5.96.
I used a lower case letter for the "n" and stretched it tall so you will have to unlink the w x h of this letter to get the right shape.
Learning Curve
"o" cut @ h 3.95 set this height on the regular cut and the regular cut and the width will be right on both cuts.
"e" cut @ h 3.95 set the height on shadow and the regular cut and the width will be right on both cuts.
Christmas Cheer
"L"
"L" is the Candy Cane cut cut this at h 3.60 set the height on the regular, shadow and layer cuts and the width will be right on all cuts.

An amazing card Ms. Jeannie! I really do love the candy cane and wreath. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year if we don't talk again.

Jeannie,
This is beautiful. Your cards are some of the prettiest I have ever seen and I think this one really tops the Christmas ones! I agree you really make the Gypsy sing! I have yet to really discover how to make mine work, I'm even having trouble with just welding! Blow some of your creative dust my way, just a "smidgen" would help me immensely! You truly have a gift!
Hugs,
Lisa

Jeannie, it's lovely and thanks for showing how you made it. I've had this card in my head for a week and it just wasn't going to come out right and then you did this one and I can see where I need to fix it! Thank you.
This really is a gorgeous card. You continue to outdo yourself.

I love your card. Beautiful colors and a great design.

I have a question though.....how do you get your screen shots from your Gypsy? Do you take pics with your camera and then upload to your PC?

I am happy to hear that your dad did well with his surgery and I am sorry to hear about your Mom. This is only the second Christmas without my mom and dad and I do miss them very much. They would scold me for that. They had 65 very happy years together.
Your card is amazing! I just got a Gypsy and have so much to learn, which is what I love about it. I wish I understood all your directions for this card.I will in time. It is so beautiful! I just found out that there are pages but I am not sure how to use them. I know I will be back and I'll keep trying. Thanks for all the directions.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
