Today's quick tip is about making your fussy cutting a little easier.
After you've stamped or printed your image and coloured it in, spend a little time looking at the different areas of the design. It's always easiest to cut away any internal areas with a craft knife before you cut around the outside of the image. The extra paper around the image helps to provide the structure your knife needs when pulling through the paper. If your image is particularly intricate, it's easy to end up with tears when cutting with a craft knife.
In the example below, I started by removing the little bit of paper between the chicken's feet with my craft knife, then went to work removing the remaining paper with a pair of sharp little scissors.
