Sunflower Cards

At least I used my Cricut on these!  Elegant Edges provided the base for the stamped images.  The sunflowers are clip art.

When I cut clip art images out by hand and don't want any white edges showing around the image, I take a marker that matches the colors in the image, or a black marker if the image outline is black, and trace around the image before I cut it out.  That gives you a little "cheat" room around the outside and makes it easier to cut them out.

The stamps I used are from the SU Define Your Life set.  they've decided to retire this set so I'm sure glad I got a set before the new catalog comes out!

 The leaves were done with a Martha Stewart punch.

Good idea about "cheating" with a marker! I always have a heck of a time cutting them out!!
