Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing Big Thanks

“Fussy cutting”

It’s a term to describe having to meticulously cut out an image with scissors.

Nowadays we’re spoiled because we have the Big Shot and thinlits and framelits that cut out the images perfectly for us.  But every now and then, you have to go old school and fussy cut.

My card today put my fussy cutting skills to the test.

The new Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper is so fun and really lends itself to creating a fun card with virtually no stamping.

My card today starts off with Call Me Clover cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Animal Expedition DSP and adhered it down the middle of the card.  Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Gray Granite cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Berry Burst cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then cut Mr. Rhino out using the coordinating rhino framelit from the Animal Friends Framelits, but the other images of the branches and birds I fussy cut out and arranged the images on the card front.

  1. WOW! I bestow upon you the crown of fussy cutting! This is a great card. A friend just gave me a pair of fussy cutting scissors so I will have to try them out on something like this.


  2. That is awesome Jaimie!! I agree with Karen…you’ve earned the fussy cutting crown! I think that rather than trying it myself, I might just send you my pack of paper and have you chop all of those little trees and birds out for me. I know that I’d cut a frog or a beak off all of them if I tried it! 🙂 Sweet card!
