Fresh Cuts



Good Sunday morning everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend. I'm finally getting my energy back after catching a bug. Trying to get caught up on the never ending laundry piles.

Last night, I opened the new Fresh-Cut Notes. How cool is this? Available next month for only $5.00 when you purchase the Fresh Cuts stamp set. Instead of popping out the petals, I left them intact... just pulled them up a bit. Then, I took full size post it notes and stuck them under the petals as far as the post it note would go on each side. I then inked up the background stamp that comes with the Fresh Cuts set and stamped over the flower in black. Remove the post it's and then stamped a border in red. I then took the whole card and mounted it on a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 piece of Basic Black card stock. I love how the petals stick out from the card. Oh, how I love these cards... you know me and flowers. *wink*

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Fresh Cuts
Paper: Fresh Cuts Notes, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red
Other: Rhinestone Brads, Flower Punch, Bold Bright Brads, Word Window Punch, Crafter's Tool Kit.
Finished Size: 4 1/4 x 4 1/4

Thanks for stopping by!

I was hoping that this would be possible. I wasn't sure that SU! would take the time to pop out all of the flowers in all of the cards they'll be making. Mine should be coming soon. What an awesome card!!!!! TFS
