Some Fussy Cutting for an 18th Birthday Frame

JAI 69 - Fussy Cutting

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to add some Fussy Cutting. So why don't you get out the paper snips and see what intricate detail you can add to your paper craft project.

The team have gone all out to provide some amazing inspiration so I hope you can find the time to play along.

My 'Vintage Style' Frame was made for our DD who just recently turned 18. She thought that I had actually bought it like this, so I guess I'll take that as a compliment ... I think?

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Clearly for You, Artistic Etchings, Easter Blossoms, Aviary
Ink: Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Basic Black
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory
Accessories: Regals DSP (Cajun Craze), Newsprint DSP (18), Victoria Crochet Trim, Vintage Trinkets, Antique Brad, Dimensionals
Non SU: Oval and Tag Nesties, Crochet Flower (hand made by yours truly)

Happy crafting,
