Theme Use your Gypsy

This is a SPECIAL challenge with a HUGE opportunity!! Did you know that Cathie is the author of the Cricut Expression book? Well she is working on a Gypsy book!! Every entry will be considered for publication in her up coming book!! Isn't that So exciting!! We are looking for ALL levels of the Gypsy.

Be sure to keep good notes on your project! Sizes, techniques, cartridges etc will all be needed if your project is chosen!

 Here is my Project:

From Twinkle Toes Label welded to make the card base Size 9.75X5.23
Shift for 1 layer Size 4.62X4.41 and 2nd top layer Size 4.25X5.11
You will need to use the reverse button to swap the side the heart is on.
From Paper Pups I added the heart from Shift and used the hide feature to have it only cut one heart layer. I copied onto each of the layers to cut the heart out. Size 1.29X2.88
Using clear acetate I cut 2 more Shift . I added some heart bling and carefully taped the acetate together. Size 4.01X3.82
For the inside I also cut Shift to hide the acetate. Size 4.72X5.60
Inside layers are Shift Size 4.62X4.41 and 4.25X4.06
From Twinkle Toes I used Using the stretch feature I made it fit exactly to my card layer. Size 3.28X1.12
