Fussy Cutting a Stampin' Up! featured card edge

Fussy cutting and edge of a row of stamping looks fantastic and is very effective on both male and female cards.  I have held a couple of classes and we made the following cards using Stampin' Up! Rubber stamps Secret Garden, Papillion Potpourri, Flower Shop and By the Tide.

Fussy Cutting is simply cutting a couple of millimetres around the stamped image - in this case we fussy cut around the flowers stamped on contrasting white card and then fussy cut the coloured base card, after adhering the feature card.

This card was inspired by Dawn Griffith, one of my favourite Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  Check her video out HERE to watch her make a very similar card - I just added a strip of Designer series paper to exaggerate the effect of the fussy cutting.

Add a contrasting Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the inside of the card to lift your fussy cutting, layer images and add a little bling and a sentiment and your card is finished.  So simple yet so effective.
