A favorite file converted for Gypsy users.
A couple of years ago I designed some cards that I called "stair step" cards. There is another completely different style of card called a "stair step" card that I was not familiar with at the time (I might have chosen a different name if I knew it could cause confusion!). I have recently had several requests for these files in the .gypsy format so I converted the file for the card above and test cut it tonight. This card uses the Alphalicious font and either George or Plantin Schoolbook (there are two separate files for the base card).
Here is a LINK to the post where I first shared this card. These cards are fun to make and there are so many variations that are possible starting from the basic card. With a little imagination you can make this style of card for any occasion.
This was one of the first stairstep cards I did and you can read more about it at THIS POST. A blog reader and message board friend sent me an image of a card she wanted to try to make and I figured out a way to cut something similar with the Cricut. Once I got started it was fun to try all sorts of different ideas and I developed the double stairstep card idea and used fonts with a stencil version to cut words into the "steps."
This is another variation of the card - here is a LINK to the original post.
I have converted the two files and tested the base card cut for the "happy happy" card. Please let me know if you need one of the other variations and I will try to convert and test cut those for posting as well. I am happy to share my files for personal use. Please respect my terms in the left side column and do not convert my files and post or distribute them on a blog, group, post on a messageboard, etc. They are also not to be used for contests or claimed as your original work for publication submissions.
We are still busy with holiday events and I get a lot of email everyday. Today was the last day our older son was here with us - he flies to Mexico tomorrow. If you send me a message and don't hear back right away it is entirely possible that your message was not seen so please try again if you are looking for some help or an answer to a question. I do my best to answer all messages but it can be difficult to keep up, especially at busy times of the year.
