Let's start at the very beginning - Day 15

Fussy cutting!

What are you talking about?

We see it all over the web but what is it? It is simply using a very sharp pair of scissors and cutting closely around the edge of an image or a piece of fabric. With Stampin' Ups paper snips, fussy cutting is very easy and the results can make a beautiful embellishment to a card or scrapbook page. Even artwork can have elements that are fussy cut. I created this canvas for a special display recently. The leaves and the trees were fussy cut.

With your new stamps and snips I will show you how to create a lovely card that anyone would be happy to receive.

Firstly draw a fine curving pencil line to be a guide as you stamp.


Stamp along this guide line, some of the petals should extend over the line to add a bit of interest.

Now is time to fussy cut. Cut around the petals leaving a small edge of white.



Stamp a few flowers on the Whisper White card scrap and punch them out. These are then added to the card with dimensionals. Stamp a sentiment and there you have a lovely card to add to your collection and now you now how easy it is to fussy cut.
