October 31st Candy Treat Card & Gypsy File

Hi everyone, I haven't used any of the fall mini's yet so I just love Halloween and wanted to check out the October 31st Cartridge. There are some great Halloween cuts on this cartridge, I made this candy holder card using the same technique as the Free Standing Pop-Up Card you can find here from Splitcoaststampsers, http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/freestandingpopupcard/, I just made the cut out bigger so the candy can pop through. I have a gypsy file for it, since the cartridge doesn't have a blackout feature I just copied and used the hide contour on the gypsy and also used circles to block out what I couldn't hide. You need to use a sturdy cardstock and I also cut out the arm with cereal box so it would be able to hold the candy. You can also cut out the paper layers in cereal box and line the inside of the card to make it sturdier. I also trimmed the arm to fit the card. I so wished I had some Halloween paper in, it would have been cuter. Here is the gypsy file: http://www.mediafire.com/?34m5zz139a6s2rk

  6. I saw where you answered a layering/welding question on the Cricut mb...I am having trouble with it too. I can't figure out how to make sure the shadow size (bottom layer) and the font size (lettering that lays on top of the shadow) are the same.
    And what's this about working with two mats? That is not in my original instruction booklet, but it sounds like something I need to know to do what I need to do.
    If you have any suggs, let me know.
    THanks!
