Theme Day Thursday....Shopping!!

Welcome to another Theme Day Thursday over at My Cricut Craft Room!! Every Thursday a theme is chosen & this week it is every females favorite past time....SHOPPING!! :) I love shopping, of course craft shopping is my all-time favorite!

I wanted to make something I could give to a friend for a birthday & be able to add a gift card. So I decided to try something I have never done before...Using my Gypsy to weld images & make a shaped card! I have only had my Gypsy for a few months & am just getting the hang of it, honestly...When I am in a hurry or frustrated I tend to pull out my overlays & carts & just skip my Gypsy!! (GASP!!) And I do love the feel of pushing those buttons on the overlay & hitting "CUT"!! :) But I also like the versatility of using my Gypsy to be able to make different shaped cards & of course other things too!

Anyway...here is my card! I used DoodleCharms for my shopping bag image...
I sized the original image at 5.5", copied it & moved it next to the 1st image. Then welded it together...this did take me quite a while to figure it out but once I got it, no problem!! Imagine the possibilities...any shape turned into a card!! My brain's wheels are a turnin'!! LOL!!

And here is the inside...I added a small pocket to slip the gift card in.
And of course plenty of room to write a message on the side!

Thanks so much for stopping by on Theme Day Thursday!! Go on back to My Cricut Craft Room to see what the rest of the Design team has come up this week! :)

Until next time...
