Fussy Cutting Cards.

The Ways to use it challenge on SCS yesterday was to do "fussy" cutting WT405. I love cutting so I made two cards. The first one is a little crazy because I cut out around the ivy. (Very little cuts that took a long, time to do.) The ivy is from a new Mark's Finest Papers set that will be released during the hop this month. It is called "IVY & BLOSSOMS".
Here is a close up view of the crazy ivy cutting.
My second card was made using My Daydream Designs. I used the cardinal from Deck the Halls Digi set. I used the already colored version so all I had to do was print and cut. After I cut it out I shaped the branches so that they were dimensional. I punched some leaves to put on the branches. I'm not so crazy as to want to cut out all the pine needles.

I am entering my cardinal card in the Kaboodle Doodle challenge to use red.
as well as the Created with love challenge to make a birthday card  with wings.

  1. OMG these are beautiful. I would say it took time to cut that. But it was well worth it. You did a wonderful job of coloring it as well.
