Curried Fresh-Cut Notes

Stampin up crushed curry fresh cuts

Here's a quick and cute Fresh-Cut Note for a friend.   I love this little set of 15 Stampin' UP! die-cut cards and 15 envelopes.  Beautiful alone (Whisper White) or adorable with a little jazzing up.   At 4" x 4" (envelopes 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" envies) they are ideal for thank you's or gift giving.


  • Stampin up fresh cuts close up For serious punch to the front of the card, I layered the Bella Toile Background stamp on top.  Wait to remove the die cut pieces so that you don't ink through to the interior of the card.
  • A 5 Petal Punch in Crushed Curry really pops when tucked behind the die cut.
  • Stampin' Up!'s corduroy buttons are one of my favorite embellishments.  They come in Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun and Basic Gray (used here).  I slipped a sliver of Crushed Curry card stock through the button holes for a coordinating knot.
  • Embossing the envelope flap with Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Finial Press Embossing Folder and my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine creates an elegant polish.

  1. Mary – WoW! What a gorgeous card. I like the Fresh Cut notes, but have had trouble getting them to look super. You did a great job. I’ll pull them out and use them.

  2. Awesome card, looks a little familiar to me. Lol. This cards gets the first prize award from me. I’m getting to really like that crushed curry cardstock and it is so striking with the gray.

  3. je ne penser pas que ce tampon faisait un si bel effet merci de la de le d?montrer en photo bonne journ?e de france

  4. Mary, I haven’t commented in awhile but I just couldn’t let this one go by without saying…WOW! The colors are terrific. I love the Bella Toile stamp but don’t always know a good use for it so thank you. I am going to try a similar card and use my M&S die for the center cut. 🙂

  5. Very elegant! I think background stamps sometimes get overlooked…but this one takes center stage here!

    Hi Colleen: Frankly, I’m guilty of overlooking my background stamps . . . it’s always so tempting and easy to grab designer paper. However, I thought the Toile background would be just perfect and it was time to dust it off 🙂

    Hugs, Mary
