Hand cutting stamped images for handmade cards may seem like a thing of the past, since we have so many Framelits that will do the job for us. But sometimes we want images cut out that don’t have coordinating dies. That means cutting them out by hand, which is sometimes called “fussy cutting.” The card I posted Monday is a good example. Here’s a closeup of the cut-out shells. You can see the entire card in this post: Marbled Stamp and So Many Shells.
I created a video several years ago of tips for hand-cutting. When I was cutting shells the other day, I remembered the video. I couldn’t find the finished video, but found the unedited files and put it back together for you. If there are images you want to cut out by hand, this video will help make it easier for you.
