Birthday Card ~ Fussy Cut Heaven (post #2)

Oh my gosh I'm in fussy cut heaven.
The challenge at Flourishes is to make a project using fussy cutting and the challenge at Verve is to use a tag so of course I combined them together to make this masculine birthday card.

I ordered a few Flourish Stamps Silhouette design files that they created to go with a lot of their stamp sets and have been playing around with them today.
They have SVG files too but I only have the regular Silhouette program so these Silhouette ones are just what I needed.
The files are designed to fit the stamp sets perfectly leaving just a little fussy cut edge around the stamped design.
I used the offset tool in my Silhouette program to make the perfect fussy cut frames to go with them.

As you can see I made a lot of these wonderful cuts so I am making another card using these.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Snow Scenes stamp set from Flourishes.
*Birthday To You stamp from Verve Stamps.
*Tag hand cut by me.
*Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink stamps pad.
*Ribbon from my Offray stash (from Michaels)
*Cording from my Tis the Season stash (from Joanns)
May your day always be filled with love.
