Now for my project...thus my dilema

I almost dropped out of this hop when I began my project. I am NOT good at these Disney cuts. I cannot get the fine details to look like anything.

I did not want to disgrace the hop with my poor project. There are MANY talented ladies in this hop.

However, I decided that I would post my card and ask for your help. How do you people cut these Princess cuts? Ariel's eyes look HORRID!!!


Ariel was cut from Dreams Come True cart at 4 1/2". The paper was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The stickers and ribbon are from my stash.


Thanks for suffering through today's card. LOL. Thanks for your help.

And for your pain and suffering....

The FABULOUS Ms. Nikki of Paper Piecings by Nikki has graciously offered up a $25 gift certificate to her online store. YAY!!!!

Hi Beckie! I think your card looks great! When it comes to the princesses I tend not to cut their eyes, instead I use a gel pen and color them in.

Beckie,
Ariel looks great! I think you did an awesome job with her. I usually touch up the princess eyes with my gel pens. Again, great job! Glad you didn't drop out because Ariel looks great!

Beckie in the photo Ariel's eyes look good but if you want an expert opinion I will ask the expert on princess-- my 5 year old!

You did a great job on Ariel- as others have said I too don't use cuts but instead pens or stickles for eye color. I have found it is just not practical to try and use those cuts,

She doesn't look that bad, dearie... Maybe some glitter to give her a sparkle in her eyes would help! The embossing is perfect for the project. Thanks for sharing.

I think it looks awesome!! Sometimes, I try the cuts and just use my gel pens and colored pens, I have also seen people use the princess faces from PKS (they make everything look good hehe). Glad you showed your card, I love it!!

I think the card is adorable. Love Ariel. I'm not a fan of the cuts but I always use a gel pen. Nice being in the hop with you.

I think this is awesome, Beckie!! You know I love mermaids!! I have the hardest time with the eyes, too...they never, ever look right. I usually end up using pens to color them in because the cuts are horrible. I cut and re-cut but can never get them right. It's frustrating. But I love your card and the embossing...so pretty :)
