Twinkle Toes

I made this card for a friend who loves to dance.  It turned out so cute!  I made the card base with my Gypsy by welding two frames together.  You can see the tiny "hinge" on top of the card.  If I were to make this card again, I would weld a thick rectangle at an angle on the side and make the hinge thicker to hold it better.  For this card, I tried something I hadn't done before.  I am not a fan of trying to glue down teeny tiny letter pieces perfectly straight onto a card.  What I did for this card is I cut the letters right into the black background with my Gypsy.  It was so much easier!  The only parts I had to worry about were the little center pieces for my "a" and "e".  Waaaayyyy easier!  My friend loved her card. It was almost too cute to give away!
