First get your Gypsy fired up and go to Gypsy Wanderings... I decided to use just this cart for this challenge so everyone could follow along ;) Do you have a cart you would like to see featured in a future challenge? Email me and let me know Kathi Clower!
We are going to make a card from an image... and for the first one I picked a rounded edged square. I turned it into a card. Here is how you do it.
Cricut tip! Keep your cutting area .25" away from all edges of your mat if you want good trusted cuts.
I will cut out the sentiment in a different color and I picked a flower from the same cart that is similar to the flower on "thinking of you" to be my pop of yellow! How festive these challenge colors have been to work with!
Also notice how I have "thinking of you" sideways... I did that when I was designing my card to make sure of the size of the lettering would look good on the base and not be too big or too small... I turned it sideways using the second button down under advanced where the circley arrow is... is turns right or left using the buttons down below once you activate it... in case you wondered how I did that! lol
Just a note... when scoring your card base score so the "mountain" side is for the inside of the fold.... not the outside... I just learned this and am loving my folds so much better since I did!
The blue cs is from Colorbok and the patterned red and yellow papers are CTMH dotty for you. The jewel was adhesive backed and from the $1.00 bin at JoAnn's for a pack of them in different shapes and sizes!
