I used the gypsy for this card. I sized it to be an A2 card. I used Everyday Paper Dolls. I welded 2 campers together. Then I cut 2 more out, one in solid cardstock and on with pattern paper. I cut the pattern paper cutout apart and used pieces to decorate with. I made the curtains and tie backs freehand. I put vellum behind the door and windows. I used my white gel pen to add some detail. The nice thing with the gypsy is I can design all the cards and then when there is time lay out all the paper and cut. Don't have to worry about getting the cartridges out. This card can be used for going away, vacation or birthday or anyone who enjoys camping. Enjoy!

A simple birthday card made with leftover pieces on my table. The flowers are from George and Basic Shapes. They were from the scrapbook page I made. I cut 4 squares and popped the flowers up and went around the edge with a white gel pen. I used white embossing powder on the happy birthday stamp. The centers of the flowers I used stickles. The pattern paper is a scrap that I tore around the edges. Went around the edge of the card with my white gel pen. Enjoy!

I used the lion from Create A Critter. He is cut at 2 inches. All the layers are cut at 2 inches. I used the Spots and Dots cuttlebug folder and then went over it with a black ink pad. I used my Crop A Dile to add the eyelets. The cloud was cut at 2 inches. I printed the saying out then set up my cricut to cut around it. I used brown chalk on the lion around the edges. Used brown ink around the edges of the cloud and added some dots. Added some stitch lines around the base. The pattern paper is scraps laying on my table. The nice thing about this cartridge is I am using a lot of scraps. This could be used for a Father's Day card or Birthday Card. Enjoy!

Card using Create A Critter and Doodle Charms Cartridge.
Used the Gypsy to weld Happy Birthday, Hat and Frog together.
Hat from Doodle Charms: Height 1.72 inches. The layer to the hat has the pom-pom and hat piece together. With the new added feature of hide contour you can put 2 on the mat and hide the pieces so you don't have to cut out 2 hat layers and 2 pom poms.
Frog from Create A Critter: Height 2.39 inches. All layers cut from that size to fit the base.
The base frog was cut with black card stock and the layers were cut with different shades of green.
The lily pad was also cut at 2.39 inches.
I inked all the edges of both the frog and the lily pad. Went around the edge with my Souffle pens.
I used green stickles on the frogs bellie. Pink stickles on the cheeks. Diamond stickles on the hat.
The Happy Birthday cut was from Create A Critter on page 27. Height: 1.49 inches. Cut out in dark blue and bottom layer in light blue. Used white gel pen to put dots on letters.
Stamped some leaves behind the lily pad and stamped a dragon fly on green paper and cut it out and layered it on to the stamped dragon fly on the card and popped his wings up for dimension. Enjoy!
