Fresh Cuts for You

Fresh Cuts for You

I can’t even remember when I last used my Fresh Cuts set, so I decided to dust it off and use it for Kristina’s Color Inspiration challenge (#23) today. I cut six 1-3/4″ squares of Glossy White card stock and stamped the corner of the background image in three different colors: Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie. I glued the squares to a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock measuring 5-1/2″ x 3-13/16″ (no kidding!).

The saying was inked up with a Chocolate Chip marker, so that I could stamp the words vertically on a small piece of So Saffron card stock. I added an Aged Copper frame and did some paper piercing along the top and bottom edges.

Thanks for stopping by!

    5-1/2? x 3-13/16? That is such a crazy measurement! LOL! I like how you used 6 panels of the fresh cuts image and all different colors! Very Fun!
