I actually created and finished this card a few days ago, but have been unable to post until today.
The picture does not do it justice and I should have taken more. The elements were designed on the Gypsy and cut out with the Cricut, then pieced together by hand. I had to flatten some of the elements more than I wanted because I have to send this through the mail to my Grandson.
This was for a Gypsy swap using only Gypsy Font and Gypsy Wanderings - I cheated a bit since it was for a young boy and used a different cartridge, but I have the file created also using the Gypsy Font, which is what I am submitting for the swap.
A blue frame was cut with a cutout opening. I covered the inside of the opening with cellophane from the packaging I keep now from all my scrap products. The bunny and butterfly is layered and on thin popdots. The ivy in the upper right corner has two pieces on the background and one on the exterior of the card. The grass is layered on the background and behind the cellophane. The flowers are on the background and on the surface have curved petals. The "Easter Blessings" is welded and layered and attached to the surface.
Items stretched: frame and cutout; grass; ivy
Items welded: grass; title
Font used: Mickey & Friends
Small flowers: I didn't like the ones that I had cut with the Gypsy and didn't have time to figure out what size and image I wanted, so I just grabbed my flower punch that was on the table and used it.
