Gypsy Made Simple - Large Window Cards

Isn't this a great card? I love the glittery look to it and the feel of it as the complete base of the card is so nice and thick. Today you will learn how you can make a large window card with more than one component on the inside. So, go get something to drink, turn your Gypsy on and lets get to work. Don't be afraid to put me on pause and go back and get a step completed so you can go on to the next step. By the time you watch both videos you will have a 5x5 window card completed and ready to cut!

On video one we get the base of the card completed and ready for welding.
This is a close up of my Gypsy screen of the complete base of the card.
This is a close up of the layers separated for cutting.

On video two you will make copies of your components weld your base and complete the card. I also eautiful as can be!want to make note that there were indeed cards made from the last two weeks, I had the linky on there wrong so it didn't show, when I fixed that there they were as can be!
Look at the YUMMY papers I picked out so shiny and glittery! I just wish you could see this card in person as it is much prettier than the photos!
First I scored my card then I trimmed the inside crease off so it would fold perfectly and my cuts would line up. Then I took the front base and just dabbed a little black ink on the crease.
In this photo you can see when I Glue it down you will not be able to notice the crease.
I used glue in the center and my ATG on the outer edges.
I places the mesh over the letters on the mat as it was easier to transport and then line up on the final card.
Here is the inside of the card. Since my base was black and white I did not ink the edges of the sentiments paper.
I used the I-Rock setter to set the gems in. Personally I think I should have used a larger gem but that is all I had.... Oh my I feel a shopping trip coming on! (Note, I did shop and got all kinds of goodies along with plenty of new gems!!!)
Didn't this turn out awesome? I just love the window cards.
That's it for today and I want to thank you for spending time with me, I sure hope you learned something new and enjoyed today's projects.  That wasn't as hard to do as you thought, was it?
