Hi Fancy Pants fans, Cathy here. I am sharing some Fancy Cuts here with you today, also known as Fussy Cutting. Fussy Cutting is easy to do, requires just a great pair of scissors, a little patience and also makes your gorgeous Fancy Pants papers stretch a bit further. I created three cards with the Nautical collection and all of the fancy cuts came from mainly one sheet, In the Clouds, and a few accents from Nautical Strips. Plus lots left over to keep creating!
As you can see, the clouds were my main focus for fussy cutting.
The next 2 cards, I still focused on the clouds but added bits from the Nautical Strips paper. I did die cut the sun and the hello with my Silhouette Cameo… it just needed a few more fun layers.
And for my third card, I used a Nautical Brag card layered with a fussy cut cloud, banner and border. One more added layer using the Nautical Frames.
I was having so much fun with Fancy Cuts that I decided to keep creating. I scrapped a fun layout using the Nautical Brag Cards that I fussy cut. I used a Page Maps sketch for this.
I fussy cut the “Yo” brag card, hand stitched through the word for a little more contrast, then layered a tag and turquoise corrugate paper from the As You Wish collection
And over here I fussy cut the light house from another Nautical brag card, popped it up and layered it with the Nautical frames and tickets.
I hope you are inspired to try some Fancy Cuts with some gorgeous Fancy Pants papers very soon.
