WEEK8: Fancy Card Friday with the Gypsy!




Hi, this is Joy and it has been an exciting week here at Christmas with the Cricut! We have been rushing about, making live streams and videos and learning the Gypsy and creating projects! I think I need a vacation! Ha, ha!

Today's 5.5" x 5.5" card was made using the Cosmo Cricket line, Jolly by Golly, this week's patterned paper sponsor. Melanie showed you the paper pack that will be given away this week in her product review - SO CUTE! My cardstock was of course, Core'dinations and I embossed it using the Cuttlebug Snow Dots and Swiss Dots folders, then lightly sanded it to reveal the lighter colors beneath. Now, for the shaped section, often called Top Note by scrapbookers....that shape is found on the new Gypsy Wanderings cartridge, which is bundled into the Gypsy and not sold by stand alone cartridge at this time. It is fantastic! The little bird came from Gypsy Font, another bundled cartridge. See the bottom of the post for a link to those cartridge handbooks because there are some really great images on these two cartridges. The striped paper is cut at 5.25" x 1.5" and the solid green is embossed and cut at 5.5" x 2". Mini-brads were using in the corner and the whole shaped section was pop dotted.

Finally, the word art and bird were made using the Gypsy and the weld feature. The font for "Joy to the world" is from Don Juan (now available on the Cricut Rewards section). I made a video below detailing how to weld using the Gypsy - it is really easy!



To see how to work with the Core'dinations paper, see THIS POST by Melanie! She shows lots of ways to play with this cardstock!

Joy thanks for the video on cutting with Gypsy. I have a question for you. When the news 1st came out about the G someone said that if one person bought the G and downloaded their carts to it then a friend could use her carts because she would already have them in her G. Well on your video you said you had to have the cart to cut. It sounds like PC is making it so you can't do that. Did I ask the question properly? Please respond. jeansaporito@yahoo.com

Another beautiful card of course!! I want to thank you for showing more for the Gypsy...if I can watch how to use it I may want it even more!!

What a cute card! My sister and I are in the process of designing our Christmas cards (we both just got Expressions machines) and I sure wish I had a Gypsy to make things easier. I have ordered the Design Studio and I'm looking forward to playing with that. This is my first post on these boards but I have been following a few of them for a while. I love seeing all the beautiful projects everyone is creating and since Christmas is my fave holiday, this thread is the one for me!
