7 Gypsies Tray with Basic Grey Jovial

Hi, this is Gaby with a 7 Gypsies Tray.
I have been wanting to create a Tray like this for a while now.
This is a 7 Gypsies ATC Artist Tray  (artist trading cards)
This tray has 12 2.75x3.75 spots
I used the left over paper and embellishments from the Basic Grey Jovial Collection kit that I used to create the previous Two-Page LO
Top of tray, from left to right - Welded letters using my Gypsy and Gypsy Font.
Next two spots - Cut Santa's outfit using my Gypsy and Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge and MS punch. For the clips I just cut pieces of cardstock.  The Santa Claus word was cut using Gypsy Font. And added a piece of green hemp cord. 
Last spot to right - I centered a wallet size picture.
Flower, bird and gift embellishments - sticker sheet included with kit.
Welded and cut 3 times to give chipboard effect.
Middle left to right - Placed a wallet size picture and 3-D embellishment from kit.  Added a piece of red ribbon.
Next spot was decorated with embellishments from sticker sheet and mini monograms, both included on kit.
I added pop up foam for added dimension
On the following spot I added a color wallet size picture. Cut bottom edge using an EK punch.
Last spot I decorated with 3-D pop ornament and the word "Presents" welded and cut using Gypsy Font.
Bottom from left to right - Decorated with embellishments included in kit.
Next placed a wallet sized picture.  Following, "DEC 25" I created with my Gypsy and Base Camp cartridge.  Embellished with BG bling included on kit.
For the last spot, I just added ribbon.
All doodling was done with Sakura metallic gel pen.
Basically I decorated this Tray with left over items from BG POTM kit and adding just a few pieces of cardstock and ribbon.  And I still have paper and embellishments left!
