MIM #212 Fussy Cutting Tips


Playing along with Ashley this Monday morning, 
as she shares her fussy cutting tips.


Worked with the Strawberry Patch and Strawberry Patch Sentiments sets,
and fussy cut the created sentiment.
Scallop frame from Make It Market: Shakers and Sprinkles.

I finished the card without the ribbon,


but then decided to add it.
What do you think?
To beribbon, or not to beribbon,
that's the question.

  1. Yum! Those strawberries look good enough to eat! I like it best without the ribbon, as the sentiment stands out more. But then, I'm not really a ribbon-kind-of-girl, to start with ;) But beautiful either way! Nice idea to use that frame, too. I keep forgetting to try that...

  2. This is so pretty!! I love the watercoloring that you did. You rocked the fussy cutting-I thought it was a new die cut that was being offered when I saw the sentiment!! I like the card WITH the ribbon. It just seems more polished. I don't know. Stunning card!!

  3. When I first looked at your card, I thought "oh, that gingham ribbon is soooooo sweet"! Then I saw your sentiment - so I think it's just the perfect touch!

  5. You watercoloured the berries? My oh my, Nancy, you always stun me. Love how you created an arranged sentiment and then fussy cut, but it's hard to believe that you really did the cutting by hand; it's just too perfect! My vote would be for no ribbon, but both ways are sweet.

  9. Your card has a "berry sweet" artsy feel to it. ;) I love the color palette. Personally, I like the ribbon. It's a perfect touch. :)

  10. This card is just so sweet Nancy...love everything about it! Those strawberries look amazing with your watercolored background, and your fussy cut sentiment looks just perfect against it! I like your gingham ribbon too, but like it better without....I can see more of your beautiful stamping that way! :0)

  15. Beautiful card and so berry luscious. I like the card both ways, with and without the ribbon. Guess you need to make another card to satisfy the ribbon issue. LOL.

  18. oh my sweetness!! I like the ribbon, but I guess my eyes do bounce from sentiment to bow...both want to be the focal point. Either way I just want to stare at it =)

  20. Nancy, this is fabulous and oh so sweet with those water colored berries. The way you framed it makes it look just like a picture so I vote for no ribbon...even though I love that gingham.

  21. Nancy your card is beautiful! Great stamp set to use for this sweet design idea. I like the gingham ribbon with the strawberries, but then thought your card looks just as pretty without it. Sorry, not much help here ;-)
