Gypsy Made Simple - From Super Simple To Challenging You Too Can Make This Father's Day Card


Time for something new this week! We have a card for you to create whether this is the first time you turned your machine on or you are a pro we should be able to challenge you this week to create! This week I took 2 cuts; the globe on going places and the word Dad from Beyond birthdays and created 3 different cards.  Go grab a cup of coffee, turn on your Gypsy and let's get to work.


This first card was made by setting the height for the word Dad to 2.75" and then stretched the width to 5". You can see this done in video 3.

In this video you will learn to take a simple shape in shadow form and double it to create a card. Then you will be able to add the layers needed to bring interest to your card. You will also learn to use the hide contour and lay your layers on the page for ease of cutting different colors.

This is a cute little card that is as easy as can be to make. Add the right sentiment and you have a great little card that is sure to put a smile on the recipients face.


See how easy this little card went together. I love typing the sentiment on me computer and with a little planning I can effectively place it on my mat to fit the image I am cutting. Now let's move on to the next video and we will crank it up a notch and you will just add 1 more shape to your card to create a totally different look.


See how a few extra steps can make a huge difference, and it isn't that difficult to do. I just love using my Gypsy to weld diffent peice together to create an awesome image. Just think after today you will too.


Let's put this card together now that we have it designe. In the this video you will see me put together two more Father's Day cards.


Isn't this card great? I love it, and with just a couple of extra little steps it just makes a 'world' of difference. I know my hubby will love this card. And doesn't it have a masculine look to it. No bows, bling or ribbon just a nice straight cut and lots of inking.

Here is a close up of the card. Don't you love the dimension? And the inking jsut adds that little extra it needed.

Here are all three cards. I love that I was able to make just a few alterations and have 3 very different cards. I challenge you to use your Gypsy this week to create a card or page. Just create and link it up. And, I really do want to see all of your Father's Day cards and anything else you create. Just link it up and let's see what you did.
Thank you for joining us today and thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments inspire me to continue sharing with you. Have a blessed week.
