This little card was made for my husbands Grandson Luke who celebrated his first birthday on St. Georges Day. I can't believe a year has passed already. Here he is with his Uncle Benn, he so loves being an uncle (he has 3 nephews and 1 neice) and is so good at it.
Well you know I told you that I had finally got my Expression and also my lovely, lovely new Gypsy but hadn't even had time to play with them yet, unfortunately I still haven't on my Expression except for cutting out this little card, but the Gypsy certainly made light work of creating something unusual. First of all I welded all the numbers and letters together using the shadow feature on Basecamp and baloon from Celebrations, duplicated and flipped it and then welded a rectangle (George) to the bottom and a scalloped circle (Mini-Monograms). I then cut them all out again using patterned paper, stamped the lovely whiff of Joy "Henry" stamp holding his cake with a candle on top, coloured Henry with my Promarkers and there you have it.
Quite effective don't you think, I just can't wait now until I get a chance to cut out some more things that I have now managed to make using the Gypsy while I have been sitting at football practice and things. This is the good thing about it, I may not have time to cut them out when I am home but while sitting hanging around waiting for Benn I can at least get some playtime on the Gypsy.
Hope you like it, now all I need is some time to play with my Expression and find out how to use the centre point (this is one of the main reasons for wanting it apart from the bigger size) and then I will be doing the happy dance.
I am entering this into the following challenge.
