My Gypsy is broken, and I can't get Craft Room to work on my laptop, so here is how I make a shaped card like this one on my Cricut. First locate the cut line on your cutting mat. It will be easy to see the edge of where the blade will cut when you have a used mat like this one.
Once you have located the cut line on your mat, position a folded piece of cardstock on the mat, with the folded edge just below the cut line.
I cut the mitten shape from page 79, Accent 2, at 5 1/4". You'll need to use the Multi Cut feature since you're cutting through 2 sheets of paper.
Once it's cut, you'll have a section at the top that still has the fold in it since it was below the cut line. So now you have a shaped card! Easy, huh?
I took the bottom of the front of my card and ran it through my Cuttlebug using Devine Swirls.
Then I cut the Accent 2/Shift feature of this mitten to get the overlay shape. This is cut at the same size, 5 1/4". But you'll see that I made a mistake here! I cut out the shape as it normally cuts, only to realize that I had made the front of my base card with the thumb going the opposite way, oops! This is where the Flip feature button comes in handy. I just flipped it, and cut it out so it would fit the front of my card.
I then added some Shimmer Trim, Sparkles, and a stamped image from Christmas Love. It turned out to be so "blingy" that I'm entering it the Glitter it Up! H2H Challenge this week :)
Please leave a comment and let me know if you're going to make any shaped cards like this :) I'd love to hear from you!
