CFC 115 and a must have tool for card makers!

Ok I am a BIG fan of this size card. It is 4x6 and it is a such a fun shape to work with. all you do is cut a 12x12 sheet of paper in thirds. And I have an easy way to do it :)

This is the tool I use to get that size card (and many other sizes too). It's called the Zutter DreamKutz. It cuts paper perfectly in half or thirds. It's a great tool for mass producing projects.

a video explaining how it works:

So anyway, back to the card...I die cut the Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaf dies from some patterned paper. These leaves are a great size for both scrapbooking and cards. Sometimes I find it hard to tell the size of dies. Here are the leaves next to a quarter. They are have a nice array of shapes too :)

and the result on some solid card stock so you can see the details:
