wishing you happiness

I'm back from our mini vacation. Visiting the Dodger Spring Training facility was wonderful. The boys had so much fun. I will be posting some pictures later this week. I had some time to take along my Gypsy and design a card. This will be posted on the Cuttlebug Spot tomorrow.. can you guess what embellishment we are focusing on this week?  I hope you go visit and join the challenge... now for my card.

I love the die and stamp combos that various companies have such as Spellbinders with Just Rite stamps and Papertrey Ink's mat stack sets.... however I needed a larger die cut and stamp so I decided to make my own with Cricut and my Hero Arts background stamps.  Here is the final card and below is the tutorial on how to do this.

cut your cricut shapes with 1/4 frame on the outside
this was done on my Gypsy with 2 frames from 
Mother's Day 2010 cart 

use the outer piece as your mask and glue with removable glue on your cut 

Stamp with your background of choice and 
mast with any cut in the middle.. ovals look great too. 

Outline the mask outer edges and the middle mask with matching maker 

it will look like this 

here is another example
