Layered Congrats

Well gang... a new Gypsy cut file has been added to the list (TOP of the right margin). I made this for a friend of the family whose accomplishments are deserving of just this caliber of handmade sentiment! I hope all of you like it as well!

I did two different styles. The first style is the first layer of the cut file and it's the round card. It's a full card from the Wild Card Cricut cartridge. I then welded the shadow for the word "Congrats" from the Gypsy Wanderings Cricut cartridge to the window of the card. The separate word "Congrats" is already sized and ready to just stick in place.

The second style (and second layer) is not a folding card. I attempted the folding card, but after all the glue and stickles were applied, the front of the card ended up being too heavy and the joint tore. So I removed the back half and left it since it can just easily be completed and then glued to a 3 x 4 or a 4 x 5.5 card. Simple but gorgeous! And I gotta say... I'm LOVIN those layers.

Pam... you are so nice, but that is the beauty of these cut files... easy peasy once their done because it's all saved and can be cut and recut. The detail you see is really just the stickles... that's the beauty of stickles. Once the cut file was created, this card took me 15 minutes INCLUDING the heat embossed "Chris". Thank you so much for the compliment, but give it a try, you'll see this one is a fast one! LOL!
