Let your Dreams set sail

Hi Everyone! Candace from Paper Crafts by Candace here. Today I am sharing with you a card I made using Pink by Design's newest stamp set "Ticket to Ride".

I decided to get creative with this card and make it a window card using my Gypsy and pop dots. The sail boat is from Boys will be Boys.


Here is a side view so you can see that the top layer and the sail boat are both popdotted. 


Here is what my Gypsy screen looks like. Use any rectangle or square and for a regular A2 card make it 4 x 5.25. Then take any shape you want from any cartridge and place it in the middle of your rectangle and size and position it how you want. Then if you want to make a border around the cut out, duplicate the shape that was in the middle of your rectangle and move it away. Duplicate it again and start making the third duplication larger until your shape has a nice border around it like below. 


After you cut your items lay your card out and glue everything down except your window, you will use pop dots to adhere that to your card.

I hope that all makes sense! I can't wait to see your window cards!!
