Using my Gypsy to Make Cuts That I Don't Have
I looked through all my cartridges, and I have about 15 great cartridges, but I couldn't find a tshirt and pants. So I used my Gypsy to create them. I found that the pants could be from a scarecrow on my Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cart and the shirt from a dress on my Paisley cart. But hide contour didn't work, so I ran the scarecrow off the mat so only the pants were showing, and then used hide contour to get rid of the buttons on the pants. For the shirt, I ran the dress off the side, and then used hide contour to get rid of the heart. (Ignore the other paisley shapes on the mat, I was working on two projects at once.)
A double mat under the shirt and pants finished off the card. I've been so impressed about what I've been able to do using my Gypsy. If you haven't checked out Emma's blog at www.creativetimeforme.com, she has a lot of fantastic gypsy videos. Have a great day!
