The Gypsy File is available for this card by email. Just copy and paste this email to your personal email account and let me know which Gypsy file that you are wanting.

I spent last Friday with my dear friend Jeannene and her daughter Kim…. They make these wonderful note card sets… I had to try one… This set is for a dear lady at my church, her name is Kay. Kay has been such an inspiration to me in my walk with God. I have learned so much from her, she is absolutely amazing… she loves God so much… you can tell her is just her personal friend!… I aspire to be like her to know God like she does. I so hope that she loves her note card set.. Thank you so much for looking!.. Thank you Jeannene and Kim for teaching me how to do this and inspiring me… and feeding my heart and soul! Hugs, Jeannie

Card Case
This is an 8 ½ x 11 piece of cardstock turned so it is wider than taller….score 5 inches from each end…then score 2 inches and 2 ½ inches from the bottom… cut out the center part between the 2 and 2 ½ inch score lines.. Fold the bottoms up.. To create a bottom… anyway it makes a little book like thingy… (don’t your love my terminology!) I added a strip of paper across the middle, it goes all the way around the outside of the “book.” I added eyelets to each side wrapped my ribbon all the way around the outside of the book…it has tape on the back to hold it in place…fed the ribbon through the eyelets and this keeps the book closed.

Lovely Floral
Circle flourish and its circle base cut @ h 2.81...set the height and the width will be right on both cuts… on the Cricut I would cut these @ 2 ¾ and inch.
K cut @ 2.48 inches… and welded to the inside of the flourish circle… on the Cricut I would cut these at 2 ½ inches…and glue to the circle.

The trim across the middle of each background were from the paper pack that I used.

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!

This is a stunning gift! I just love this idea. I think I will make some as gifts for christmas. I may need to try the little case in a "rough draft" It looks slightly complicated.

TFS :)
