Timeless Tuesday ~ Fussy Cutting Fun!

Hey hey hey stampers!  Welcome to another fabulous Timeless Tuesday Challenge with Flourishes!

This week our lovely hostess Jenny has a cool challenge for us!  This week's challenge is to...

For me there is nothing better than sitting down with scissors in hand cutting out detailed stamped images - it's like therapy - but today... I cheated!!  LOL!  Today, for my card creation, I used the new stamp set "Star of Bethlehem" stamp set and I used it's accompanying silhouette cut file! Yup... having cut files for all my gorgeous stamp sets is awesome and makes it SO EASY to put together a new card.  

For my cut file cardstock, I used Classic White cardstock.  This cardstock "cuts like buttah" on my Silhouette Cameo! *Sigh!*

I used my new favourite neutral cardstock, "Cinder" from the "Cool Neutrals" Color Made Easy cardstock collection.  It matched perfectly to my holiday themed patterned papers!

My card today is a Surprise Pop-Up style card.  You can find a quick written and video tutorial on this card style HERE at Splitcoaststampers.  Here is the inside of my card front with the tag pulled up... 

I stamped my greeting in "Black Tuxedo" ink from Memento with a green inked floral too.  And at the top of my tag, for my "Merry Christmas", I used Versamark ink with white embossing powder.  All of these images and sentiments are included in the "Star of Bethlehem" stamp set!

I even decorated the inside of my card too...

I also created my card for this week's Christmas Card Challenges: #47 - use flowers and for the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To challenge: HYCCT1308 - "It's a Cover Up!"; a hidden message challenge. 

Thanks for checking out this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge today!  Please be sure to check out some wonderful inspiration from our extremely talented team:
Happy stamping this week everyone!
