Hello, I love you

Hello Friends, It's Monday and time for {ippity} Hop. Please stop by at the {ippity} blog to see the complete list of participants.

Here is my card using Because Of You. I seem to be using this stamp for all my projects lately :)

I used the CPS Sketch #202 for this card. I cut out the flowers from the set and matted them with some Red CS and the sentiment completed the card. I thought of adding some stickles to the flowers, but they were looking quite good as they were, so did not add the stickles. Although my cutting could use some more practice :)

If you have some good cutting tips so as to not leave jagged edges, please do leave me a comment.

Here is the Sketch,

Love your card!! By the way, the only way that I can avoid the jagged edge look when I cut anything out is to leave a little boarder around the image!

Sara said...

Great job, love the images. As for cutting a small scissors that is sharp all the way to the point. Good luck;)

Lovely card! The sentiments are wonderful....

I once heard that the best way to cut was to move your paper as you cut instead of your scissors. Don't lift the scissors and you should get a smoother rounding.

Hope this helps!

What a really cute use of the CPS sketch and those stamps.

adorable card Banu!
Love those flowers and the color combo!

I was going to say the same thing as scrapcollector said as well for cutting smooth edges. move the paper. the fewer times you have to move your scissors or actual cuts the fewer jagged edges you have.
also look just a tiny bit ahead of where you are cutting and your boarder around the image is straighter, or at least that is what they tell me! tehe!!

Thank you for sharing!

Blessings and Hugs,
Mary
