A quick cut

I mentioned to you in the last post that I am not very organised, and this was the case for my husband's birthday. It was the night before at around 10pm and I hadn't made him a card yet. I usually make him some kind of silly cartoon card, but I didn't want to disappear for very long, so it was a case of a speedy sketch and then a quick effort with the craft knife. From start to finish it must have taken me about 5 minutes (if I'd had more time it would have been neater.)
I was going for simple but effective with a touch of the naive - well that's what I'm telling myself! At least it was in keeping with the whole gardening theme we had going, and he thought it was really nice. I hadn't done any paper cut cards for several years, but now I have done this one, I think I may well be getting the knife out again soon. I need the practise!
It's the message inside that counts - but I'm not sharing that ;-)


  1. How darling! I think I'd cut my finger off if i tried this- so I'll just admire yours!
    I love my gardening, too, just like you and your hubby!

  2. Doda, this card is gorgeous!! You are so creative and talented and I just love this card!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend ~ Tina x

  3. Aww, thanks girls, you made my day!

  4. Wow, you did a great job - I have never even attempted anything like this before!

  5. i love your card, paper cutting is something i haven't tried at all yet, it always looks so complicated.
