Winter Woodlands Card Birthday Card - Made with the Gypsy

Hello Everyone!

Thanx for stopping by ... hope you are all having a great day.

I did it ... Whewwww ... what a challenge ... I designed my first card using the Gypsy ... It took a while because there were so many cuts in different sizes. I'm proud of myself though because this was a great learning experience. I'm loving my new toy!

This is a birthday card for a MB member's DD who is turning 16 and a half. A long story, but it's a special celebration for them. This is the card I came up with, all cuts were made with the Winter Woodlands cart, including the center cut-out piece. I took the idea from my Ultimate Crafters Companion and designed it with my Gypsy so it could be cut on my "E". Printed paper, card stock, pop dots and a bow ... oh, and of course, one of my silly lil verses . Hope you like it!

This is the front of the card ...

Have a Great Day Everyone!

Carol, I just love your cards and verses. Wish I could even think I could use the gypsy. I am very computer challanged.

Wow!! Nicer than an expensive store bought card. The saying you came up with for her 16 1/2 Birthday is a talent not very many people have. I don't think anyone would be able to find a card for a half Birthday. It would just be a generic BD card so isn't nice you could really personalize it. I love the cut out.
