I am so excited about this card.. I got to use a new product by Cri-Kits …their cool pens… I have a picture of below!!…that you can use with your Cricut to write or draw anything that you can cut…and the Gypsy makes it so so easy to put all these in just the right place!!… I can’t wait to try out new things!!…I have ideas flowing in my head!!…and later this week…Friday I am hoping …I get to give away 42 of these pens along with the housing that holds the pens!!… how exciting is that!!
I made this card for my sweet son-in-law Cory…his birthday is July 4th…now I have to Priority Mail the card…because I was waiting on my pens to make this card… Once I laid out this card for him... I didn't want him to make another one... this one just seemed so much like a card he would like!! I so hope he loves this card.
CRICUT, GYPSY & CRI-KITS ( I love my Cri-Kits)
Layer One (for this file on my Gypsy)
Square .. For template.. w 3.75 x h 5.0 .. I did hide contour with this cut…and just laid my paper cutter pieces on the correct place on the mat to …this way I knew exactly where to lay out the pieces I was going to draw on my paper...using the Cricut you would need to cut these pieces out the right size and place them on your mat.
Tiny Rectangles…. Cut @ w 0.15 x h 0.23..there are tons of these… I used my Silver Metallic Cri-Kits pen to draw these on my mat. … Using my Cricut I would cut/draw these at h ¼ inches… move the ink pen over where I wanted each of these drawn. You will have to draw them one at a time if you use just your Cricut.
Happy B-Day letters cut @ h 0.62...set the height and the width will be right on all letters…Using the Cricut I would cut/draw these at ½ and inch.. I would cut each letter one at a time…moving the cursor where I wanted the next letter to start..this will take practice.
Human letters cut @ h 0.54 set the height and the width will be right on all the letters… .. using the Cricut I would cut each letter one at a time…moving the cursor where I wanted the next letter to start..this will take practice.
Layer 2 (for this file on my Gypsy... use a different mat)
Robot and all its layers cut @ h 5.33...set the height and the width will be right on all the cuts… on the Cricut I would cut these out @ 5 ¼ inches.
Card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Frame Piece 4 x 5 ¼ , Background piece 3 3/4 x 5… these cuts are on the inside and outsides of my cards… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inside only….. I cut all of these with my paper trimmer
*There is now a link at the bottom of each post where you can show off your recreation of my cards… with a link back to your card on your blog, or the Cricut Message Board or a photo storage place like Photo Bucket…. I would love it if you share your recreations with me! It just makes me happy!! Thank you so, so much! Hugs
I tried to turn this picture the right way...it just wouldn't work.
I love sharing the instructions and files for my cards but I do ask that if you use my instructions or files to recreate my card and place it on your blog or somebody else’s blog that you give me the credit for the original design. I also ask that you do not submit my designs for publication, profit or for any contest. Thank you!
