Blog Hop Featured Project - Cutting Intricate Card Windows

I have been having such fun with my Cindy Loo cricut cartridge, especially the doilies, they are so cute! So when I saw the new hide contour feature on the Gypsy, I wondered if I could use that feature to hide the outside cut of the doily and cut an intricate window in a card. The anwer is yes!!

This first card is for a Cricut Card Fairy mission and the assignment was to make a pink get well type card. I don't usually do much pink, unless it is mixed with brown or some other color, but I decided to embrace the pink, as you can tell with this card.

I used one of the doily cuts on the Cindy Loo cartridge and my Gypsy to hide the outside cut and position the cut on my card. I actually love the way it turned out!


This next card was done using the same technique, a different Cindy Loo doily, and no pink! I'm not sure if it shows in the pictures but it has a peachy/ivory/teal color theme. I love this card too, I think I will be doing more of these cuts!


Check out my next project before you go,
