Merci beaucoup, my friend! Card made with the new Summer in Paris

Hello, everyone! I hope you all are having wonderful weekends! Hopefully you playing around in your craft space a little bit.

Today's card is made with the FANTASTIC new Summer In Paris cartridge. This cartridge is so beautiful! It is one of my favs for sure. Some advice though, this Eiffel Tower is cut at 4" and I would not cut it any smaller. It fits nicely on this card though, so there really is no need to cut it smaller. The swirls are beautiful, but very tricky! I know you are going to love this one though. It is so elegant!


The sentiment is a stamp from Papertrey Ink. The paper is from DCWV.
Don't forget my huge drawing(Just Because Cards, Preserves, Elmo's party, Destinations, Serenade AND You pick one PRE-ORDER of the new cartridges(announced today but *excludes Cake Basics*) from Hallmark Scrapbook) on Thursday! You can enter in the drawing by posting on THIS post and signing up as a follower.

Have a great rest of your Sunday!

I love the swirls on the tower, but I sometimes have problems cutting things with such intricate design. You make it look so easy. Do you have a secret for those types of cuts?

Pretty card! I have trouble with the more intricate cuts...they tend to either tear my paper or not cut all the way through. Maybe I use the wrong paper?
