Cricut Gypsy Smiley Cards Moneybag card

Oh yeah!  Moneybags all around!!

I told DH that he’d be happy to know that I was in the craft room making money bag cards.  He asked right away if they were the kind that money would come to us in or that our money would be going out in.  I was planning on putting our money in this for my nephew’s birthday…so…I just pretended I couldn’t hear him until he started talking about something else.  LOL!  I’m just kidding! 😉  He’s so nice that he said either way was fine.  Awww.  (Between you and me…I’m putting it under my pillow in case the money bag card fairy comes.)

This card was made using my Gypsy (which I just got back from Provo Craft after it’s little brain fried – YAY!  I’m so happy to have it back).  I welded two of the bags together  and used my Cricut Expression 2 to cut everything out.  That green paper worked out so well!  It’s from a stack of K&Co. Primary Designer Paper Pad that I’d never seen until I found it on Amazon.

I used the the Smiley Cards digital cartridge for this project. It was a download that was offered about 6 months ago for Gypsy users during a limited time. It’s a really cute cartridge, but since it didn’t come with a booklet I made one using my printer and the AWESOME YourStory. YourStory is essentially a laminator with branded book covers that can help you create books. I also use this laminator by Scotch.

Stickles make the world go around.  Wait…maybe the Earth rotates because of leftover momentum from the solar nebula that all of the planets and the Sun formed within? No.  It’s definitely Stickles.

Those Stickles really bring this simple card to life.  I like the glitter tongue I added!

  7. Thanks for the tips Joy. All You magazine has free samples just about everyday, also. I sent my Gypsy to Provocraft for re-something-or-other when they offered the free carts with update (Nov I think) and when I finally got it back I was unable to download Smiley cart, bummer.

  8. I have read through your posts for the last 2 days being the UK I discarded some of it but I then decided to try it on UK only sites and I was really surprised by what I found so Thank You Joy for the inspiration not only in card making but now in money making too lol.
