Fresh Cuts Cards

I have been meaning to make cards using the Fresh Cuts notecards and stamp set for months now. They have been sitting on my shelf saying "Please use me!" I just have not had the time! Well I finally made time and I LOVED creating with them. I can see a few potential Christmas gifts happening here. They are so easy to use and create beautiful cards with.

For both cards I placed Designer Series Paper behind the cutout and then added embellishments to the centre of the flower. The Kiwi Kiss card has a Flower Fusion felt flower and Kiwi Kiss corduroy button and to finish it off the Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon is gorgeous.
The Tangerine Tango cards again has Flower Fusion flowers and a clear diamond brad, along with Only Olive grosgrain ribbon.
Words are from the Fresh Cuts stamp set.

These were so quick and easy to create! Another perfect example of how everything Stampin'Up! produces work so well in harmony with each other! Another reason I LOVE Stampin'Up! products.

A tip for you - to get your ribbon sitting flat on your card, first cut a length of ribbon to the width of your card and attach underneath the page using double sided tape like Sticky Strip. Then tie your "knot" separately around the ribbon on your card. It not only gives you a neat looking ribbon feature but saves ribbon!
