Project Thirty-seven

Good Morning Everyone!
Happy Friday to all!

So I planned this project at the beginning of the week because I picked up the girls Thursday ....
and they are here till Sunday afternoon. We are hoping to have full custody at the end of this month.

OK so this is a really cute card I made using my Gypsy. You could use Design Studio also!!
This is for one of our adopted "nieces". We have been friends with their parents for many years, so we got the honorary titles of Aunt and Uncle. She is having her 12th Birthday next week.

The recipe is below the pictures. But I want to explain I used Cri-Kits for the sentiment on the inside of the card. I took pictures of the Cri-Kits so everyone can see what they are and how they work.
I will add the link to where you buy your own Cri-Kits they are so much fun!!

This is the card

This is the inside of the card........This is Gypsy Font using my Cri-Kits and Gypsy
This is the Cri-Kits The purple metal part is the actual part that goes in the Cricut.

A close up of the pen in the holder.

This is what it looks like in the Cricut


Cartridge: Disney Happily Ever After and the font I used was Gypsy Wondering
The dress is actually two icons welded together. to for the base of the card
page 44
1. the shadow base/icon with the shift key
    at 4 inches
2. copy that image, mirror it, then flip it then move the image so the edges of the top of the dress are touching. Weld the two pieces together.

OK so I opened another page in my Gypsy with layer 1 being able to been seen so  then used Gypsy Font to write Happy Birthday Cari , I was able to see the outline of the dress so I knew where to put the words.

OK so the dress part of the front of the card is Page  44
The base of the dress is the Icon key cut at 4 inches
the paper is from DCWV 8x8 Sweet Stack

The top of the dress is the Icon with the Shift key
the paper is Stampin Up Regal Rose
I then glittered the top
then put Glossy on top using two coats.

I cut the images on layer 1 Then I did not unload the mat
I went to layer two on my Gypsy. Then I took out my blade housing and put in the Cri-kit And "cut" the second layer. The second layer never really cut on the dress I used the pen to write.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask ... oh yeah here is the link to Cri-Kits

Thanks for looking everyone!
