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 am so excited about all of this… I love the card because it matches the present so perfectly!.. This made it so much fun to make… I am excited about the toboggan and the scarf because I learned to do stripes on my Knifty Knitters!!… these are so much fun!!.. This is only my second toboggan too… in the south we call these knitted caps, toboggans… I know all my friend from up north are laughing…but a toboggan is what they are to me!!… Thank you all so much for looking!! Hugs Jeannie

Rock Princess
Girl and her layers cut @ h 2.93... Set the height and the width and height will be right on all the layers… I did leave out a couple of her layers and did the hide contour on others… I cut two of the body so that I could pop her from the background twice. ……on the Cricut I would cut these at 3 inches.
Happy Birthday and it shadow cut @ h1.47...set the height and the width will be right on both cuts… on the Cricut I would cut this at 1 ½ inches.
Pooh and Friends
Toboggan and its layers cut @ h 1.13 … set the height and the width will be right…on the Cricut I would try cutting these @ 1 inch and at 1 ¼ inches and see which one fits better.
Paper Dolls for Everyday
Scarf cut @ w 1.15 x h 3.71...I cut one in blue and one in orange so I could cut out the stripes that I added to the scarf .....I folded part of the scarf behind the girls neck... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 3 ¾ inches…I did the background piece that say Katelyn over and over on my computer.

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

On the toboggan I used the next to large round Knifity Knitter and on the scarf I used the small one.

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!

Oh Jeannie,
What a perfect combo. You have the gift and the card so personalized! This so great and so wonderful. I laughed so hard as the colors you have choosen are the colors for the local NHL hockey team The Edmonton Oilers!
So to me not only do you rock, the present rocks and you have managed to use some of my favorite colors!
Great Job!
