Gypsy Welding for Baby Card
One feature that I absolutely love using on my Gypsy, is welding! A fellow crafter recently asked how to get those cute little words/phrases, etc., cut out on the bottom or side of a card, and I instantly said "welding"! Tonight, I used the New Arrival cart and found the "baby" phrase in cute scalloped blocks. I picked a blank card template from a cartridge (for the life of me, I can't remember which one now...either Wild Card or Just Because Cards), sized it, and added the scalloped baby word to the bottom of the front. Then I hit the weld option on my Gypsy...and voila! The card is almost A2 size (1/2" less in width). I randomly inked all over the card with SU Pixie Pink, and the cute clothes line embellishments came from K&Company. I really had minimal time tonight, due to some other commitments, but I hope this helps give an example of using the welding feature on the Gypsy! ~Hoppy Crafting!
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
