So Many Reasons to Be Thankful Card - Fussy cutting

Once I got used to it, I started to love fussy cutting out my stamped images, such as the sunflower in this card. I might stamp a bunch of them, then cut them out when I am watching tv.

 I use Cutterbee scissors that are sharp, small and fit my hand well. I turn the paper instead of my hand.  With practice, it goes quickly, and you don't need a fancy cutting machine or dies.  I also hand trimmed out a simple tag shape for this card.

Stamps: Gina K Harvest of Wishes Mini Stamp Set (sunflower)
Gina K You're My Favorite Mini stamp set (sentiment)
Ink: Archival Jet Black
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye Lost&Found Two, Sunshine, 6x6 inch pad

  8. I really like how you stamped the sunflowers on a really subtle pattern paper. You did a lovely job fussy cutting those sunflowers. I also like how you added the lace and ribbon to only half the card. Very pretty.
