Many of you know I have been a little lost without my Gypsy girl! She went to the "spa" for a facelift. There was a mixup and she got on the wrong flight home (switching places with a look-alike) and I am still all alone here. Well, kind of...
My friend and student loaned me her Gypsy. She does not have very many carts and has a couple that I don't have. I am grateful for the chance to play, but I seriously lost my mojo. It took a little nudge from my good friend Sassy to get creating again! She is having a box challenge on her blog ~ go check it out!
I decided to make a box with the carts that Crysta has on her G. I used Gypsy Font and Sentimentals to create this box.
I went to test cut the box, and one of the sides was not welded. I re-welded it and then accidentally un-grouped the boxes and had to start all over welding ~ UNTIL I remembered to just close the file, not save the changes, then re-open the file.
I used my MS Score Board to score my box and lid. I used double sided tape to adhere the box flaps.
I cut 5 flowers each one a little bigger than the first. I inked the edges in red using my brand new Fantasticks (thanks MakeupGirl217). I cut out 2 leaves and inked with the only green ink pads I had (wish I had a darker one) and this is how it turned out!!
It is not perfect (yet) but I am getting back on my horse ~ so to speak!!
