FSS Tulip Bouquet


Hello again! Well I have come back down to earth after getting some time with my new cutter...although my feet are barely touching the ground! I wanted to share a card I created using the FSS Tulip Bouquet Colored Set...don't these look like they were freshly picked? Tracey does such a great job with her flowers and her colored sets are wonderfully done! Although you really cannot see it, I had printed the image twice and cut out the vase and pop dotted it so that there was a little more dimension on the card. Now I have to tell you about the butterfly border...this was NOT a punch around the page punch set...I watched a video from Becca at Amazing Paper Grace...she demonstrated how to create the punch around the page look with your regular border punches...AMAZING! Little bit of work and measuring but I was very pleased with the end result! Although I did try this with one of my older Fiskars border punches and BROKE it!!! Oh well. Well I am off to do some more playing with my new Black Cat Lynx and hope to have a project to show you soon using it...I am amazed at how FAST it cuts and it cuts like butter!!!! I hope you all had a great day today and that your weekend will be even better! Thanks for stopping in to see me today, I will be by to see you all a little later on tonight I hope!

HUGS!
