I was in the mood to do some coloring and fussy cutting, and Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper was a “perfect” choice. The black and white flowers were calling for some color, so I used Stampin’ Blends in three colors: Bermuda Bay, Fresh Freesia, and Polished Pink.

fussy cut and colored


After coloring, I used my Paper Snips to “perfect” my patience with the detailed design. It’s actually fun, once you get the hang of moving the paper, and not the scissors.


To add to the card’s design, I used a Stitched Rectangles Die (1 1/4″ X 3 1/4″) to cut three rectangles, which were embossed with the Hive Embossing Folder. I eyeballed the spacing, and glued the three rectangles to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I glued my cut flowers on top of the embossed rectangles.


The sentiment, “a note of thanks,” is from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, used a Sending Die for cutting, and attached it with Mini Dimensionals.


I was inspired by TGIF.
