3D Thanks!

A great big
(and I mean really big)
thank you to all my blog readers.

My blog is now over 5000 visits!

This goes out to you...

If you are a reader or a visitor would you please leave a comment and say "hi" maybe where you are from and how you discovered my blog?  (or just hi!) I'd love to know who you are!

I hand cut this bad boy with a hobby blade.  The proof is in the rough edges and awkward but beautiful hearts. Does anyone who specializes in 'fussy cuts' have tips you can share on how to cut around curves with a hobby blade?

Side note to my best friend: (Leigh if you are reading this I did NOT pick up a hobby blade...I hired trained professionals who specialize in the art of utilizing sharp utensils)....

I love this card, it was so fun to make and it's definitely a 'wow' item.  It is a HUGE card at 4x8" and when you open the card the word THANKS pops right out at you! BAM!  I like that...a bit of drama suits me fine!

3D Thanks!SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

VERY cool. What MD said. Plus, since I always mess up, I have some files made especially for tiny spots like that and I just go back and clean up after myself.

PS: Congrats!

Love it! Very cool! Try using a swivel blade (like the Coluzzle) to cute around curves. I use it free hand quite a bit for that very reason...well quite a bit is a bit of an exageration since I rarely hand cut, but you get the idea. Give it a try.

AWESOME card! Love it. Not sure I would try it though. Not sure how I stumbled upon your blog, but have subscribed, so I stop in each time you put up a post. Thanks for sharing your artwork with us.
