This card is a Vicki/Jeannie challenge… Vicki and I use to do these all the time…and they were so much fun!!…I missed them!!…and Vicki, she has been missing in action… I am so hoping this will get her all excited about cards again and she will be around as much as she use to be!! Hint Hint!!! So let her know how much you have missed her!! Here is a link to her blog!!.. Just click HERE!… we decided to use the Turtle from Create A Critter… a turtle was one of the first Vicki/Jeannie challenges we did together so we thought it was a fitting choice!!… thank you so much for looking!! Hugs, Jeannie

CRICUT & GYPSY
Create A Critter
Turtle and its layers cut @ h 1.68 set the height and the width will be right….on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 3/4 inches.
Snail and its layers cut @ h 1 inch set the height and the width will be right…on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 inch.
Flowers and its layer cut @ h 2.04 set the height and the width will be right…. Weld one of these to one of the taller grass pieces… On the Cricut I would cut these @ 2 inches… you can just glue this to one of the taller grass pieces.
Doodle Charms
Sun cut @ w 4.84 x 3.93.… On the Cricut I would cut this @ 4 inches.
Easter 2010
Shorter Grass cut @ w 1.98 x h 1.19 ... place two in the mat and weld them together....this is the grass on the very front row.... on the Cricut I would cut 2 or these at 1 1/4 inches...and overlap them on the card to get the length you need.
Taller Grass (2) ...duplicate the shorter grass then unlink the width and height and change the height to
h 1.59.....when I cut two rows of the same grass I flip the second row so they won't just overlap each other...on the Cricut I would cut 4 of these @ 1 1/2 inches and overlap on the card to get the length you need.

I've always wondered which pot dots you use. This video was perfect for seeing how you get all of your layers just perfect. I marvel at your ease with the Gypsy. Clever card.

Nan said...

Beautiful card. i love the way you carry the theme over to the inside of the card. That is something I really love to see in a card maker. your video is very good also. I think this helps me more than anything. I have been working on some cards. trying to get back in the swing of things,, thanks for the inspiration.

Nan said...

Jeannie, What does Weld mean? You mention that often in your video and I suspect it means put two pieces together, but how do you do that? is it just gluing those ends together or is that a gypsy term? thanks so much

Jeannie Phillips said...

Nan...welding is a gypsy or design studio term...it means to attach things together...like letter... I welded the grass pieces together on this card...and I welded the flowers to the grass... so they all cut out in one piece.

Thank you everybody so much for the comments.

CraftsManda said...
