Fussy Cut Tutorial for Miriam's Crafting Supplies

Today I am going to give a tutorial for Miriam's Crafting Supplies on how to fussy cut. If you're new to the crafting world, you might have heard this phrase and wondered what it was or how to people get their stuff to fussy cut? It's actually quite easy but time consuming if you're in a hurry but so worth it when you're done.

I first had to find a pad of paper that I liked with something to cut out. I used g.c.d.'s Antiquities that I bought on clearance.

I decided I wanted to use the flowers on this page for my card so I grabbed my small scissors and my  craft knife and started cutting.

The scissors you are looking for need to have short, sharp blades for detail cutting. There are a few brands out there but one of the ones that most crafters use is by Cutter Bee. Use these to do the main cutting and then use the craft knife to cut the intricate parts once you are done.

This is what the fussy cut looks like when you are done cutting:
Now for my card I decided to use my favorite adhesive and gloss - Mod Podge. I love to Mod Podge things down and this cut is the perfect thing for it. I just Mod Podege the flowers I cut out right to the card stock.
I continued by adding the other flowers and designed and my little fairy to the card - all with Mod Podge.
I coated both sides of the fussy cut images with Mod Podge but I didn't the fairy.
I'm sure you will agree that this card is cute but missing something and that something is some of the different colored and sized half pearls from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.
I sprayed a hint of glimmer mist on the card before adding the half pearls. Click on the link to visit her store and see all her great crafting products at some of the best prices around - Miriam's Crafting Supplies.
