Fussy cutting edges.

Are you a Pinterest fan? 
I am and I have found some wonderful cards there.
I seldom copy the card as is, rather I take an idea from a card and put my own twist on it.
That's how I came up with these cards.
I love the fussy cut edges and the one image done differently.
For this butterfly card I used
Small Lacy Butterfly (#58902)
For this rose card I used
Rose (#17505)

To stamp the edge, I first stamped onto scrap paper and cut out the image.
I used this as a mask.  I stamped one image at the bottom of the card, covered it with the mask, stamped another image overlapping the first, removed the mask and covered the image I had just stamped and continued this process up the edge of the card.
I then stamped one more of the image on white cardstock.

Now the cutting begins.  I fussy cut the edge of the card.
I then fussy cut the one stamped on white cardstock, the butterfly was colored first with FlexMarkers.
The cut out image is simply adhered over one of the images on the edge.

I stamped a very simple "ENJOY" onto the butterfly card, I believe this is a Close To My Heart stamp that I borrowed from a friend.
(Thanks Jen!)

The entire card front was then adhered to a white card base.

I'm thinking that I want to make another rose card and color the "different" rose.  What do you think?  Do you like the colored one or the plain one better?  If I do another one with a colored rose, I'll post it for y'all to see.

Why not stop over to QKR Stampede and Eureka! Stamps and see what images you may want to try this technique with.
It's fun and makes a beautiful card.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Leave a comment if you will and come again soon.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

We read what Alice Forgot for book club. It is funny, sad and thought provoking. If you read it let me know what you think.
