diy papercutting cards

I made some cards using botanical cutouts. I found images of botanical prints online, resized them, and then printed them onto colored cardstock. I then used scissors and an exacto knife to cut out the flowers. I did the same thing with the lettering. I used a free font called the only exception which you can download here.  I printed the text onto cardstock and cut out the letters. Before printing make sure to choose the fliphorizontally printing option because you will be flipping the cutouts over before gluing. I used a spray adhesive to glue the flowers and text onto the front of the cards.

I thought this would be a tedious project, but these were a lot quicker to make than I expected. I ended up making quite a few plus a framed picture for my daughter’s room.
