I am also designing for Cricut Is Close To My Heart today so please make one more stop along the way to see all the awesome designs there as they all feature designs that can be made with the Art Philosophy Cartridge.
Today I have a simple and fun project for you that can be made with a few steps on your Gypsy... I used the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge for the base of the card and the girl is from Forever Young. I really had a hard time taking a photo of this as you are looking through acetate and the light is reflecting on it.

Just follow along and you will see that in just a matter of a couple of minutes you will have 2 great cards.

The papers are from KandCompany for the base, a glitter paper from Joann's, and the solid mat is from the Summer Paper Package from CTMH. I also used the acetate/plastic page protectors of a notebook for the window in this card.(These pages are not stiff or gray looking they are clear and firm).

Don't you just love how fast that card came together. The stamp is from the Fasionista Stamp Set from CTMH, if you don't have Forever Young cartridge you can stamp one of the ladies from that set too or from any cart that will give you a solid person image. I wanted to use the stamp set but I want to make sure that everyone can participate and not just those with the stamp.

Don't you just love how delicate this card is? And the glittery paper just shimmers while the acetate give you the impression that you are looking at a mirror. I love it!

Look at this awesome sentiment.... sure to make anybody feel special no matter what their circumstances are. I love it! The pink paper matches the pink on the front of the card...
One more close up of this awesome card. Click HERE if you would like this Gypsy file. Now this week I want to see what you do! The holiday is over so there is no excuse, so let's see your project this week! I challenge you to make a card or page that uses a silhouette of some sort and acetate in it somewhere. Then link it up!!! One lucky person will will a stamp set thanks to Random.org. (I can't possible choose from the talent that is out there). Link your project by 4:00 pm on Friday April 27th to qualify, winner will be announced Saturday morning.
I hope you enjoyed today's project, I know I sure love this card and can't wait to get it in the mail! Now if you didn't start from the begining be sure to hop right over to The Bug Bytes and see Pam's great design. Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments inspire me to continue sharing with you. Have a blessed week.
