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.

This is a card that I have had in my Gypsy for about a week…. It’s all Enfys’ fault!… I saw her card with this cut on it… and ordered this cartridge that night… My daughter and son-in-law read all the time… Books are what got them talking to each other in the first place… and they got me the Hoot ‘n’ Holler for my birthday… so I knew that I wanted to add the owl to the cut when I saw Enfys’s card… I am so excited at how this turned out… I hope that you like it too… thank you so much for looking!! Hugs, Jeannie

Hoot ‘n’ Holler
Owl and all it’s layers cut @ 1.07 x 1.52... On the Cricut I would cut these cuts @ 1 1/2 inches.
Wall D├ęcor and More
Book Shelf (3x‘s) Shadow (2x‘s)…(border feature) cut @ 4.70 x 1.89 … I cut the shadow twice so I could pop up the first shadow and the lay out the books on the second shadow…and pop that from the first shadow… I cut the book cut out 3 times and then cut those apart so I could have the different colors… I used leftovers from that cut on the inside of the card… glued it down on black and cut around it to have a shadow….  On the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 3/4 inches.
Wild Card
"Hello" cut @ w 2.26 x h 6.11... I promise this is right… it will not be too big…on the Cricut I would cut this @ 6 inches

Card base 4 ¼ x 5 ½ inches… Frame piece 4 x 5 ¼ inches…. Middle Frame piece 3 ¾ x 5 Background piece 3 ½ x 4 ¾ inches… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inches… all these pieced I cut on my paper trimmer.

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!

Wow this is beautiful, I've always loved your work and with this card it's no different! When I first saw that cart I loved that bookshelf! And you've done such a wonderful job with it, I just got this cart and you've inspired me to finally design something with it!
