Cutting the grass

Oh, I love this card design. And I can say that because I totally copied it from Kelly, one of my downlines. She is a really clever stamper and totally shakes my ideas up because I do tend to get stuck in a rut sometimes. You can see her version of this card here. Please visit and leave her a comment!

I changed the colours but kept the design the same. You can’t quite see the white clouds but they are there, honest!

Someone asked me how I made the “grass”. Did I have a special tool because I surely couldn’t have made all those cuts by hand? Er, unfortunately, yes I did cut them by hand. It soon became evident that it was a bad idea but there was no going back!

  1. Oh, very cute! You did a super job with this.

    And yes, cutting that grass is tedious. I did it on a birthday card I made several years ago, so I definitely can relate.

  2. Love it Helen, off to peek yours downlines now!!

  3. This is So Cute !!!
    Good job for the cutting grass

  4. That is pretty clever! Your poor hand from cutting all that grass by hand! Very cute!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
