Pink flower card

To cut or not to cut??

I'm unsure about cutting off the flower petals on the left side of this card to make it a perfectly square card........or do I leave them to hang out like this? What do YOU think.......opinions welcome!

I've used a flower petal and centre stamp from an Inque Boutique set, Basic Grey PP (brown), All My Memories PP (pink), Stampin' Up cardstock and ink, 2 different Fiskars border punches, Kaiser rhinestones (pink, clear and brown)

Other embellies - metal butterfly, pink button and metal flower centre. I ran the metal flower centre through my Cuttlebug machine to flatten it - it was very thin metal so it flattened easily!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Edit: I forgot to add that I won't be mailing this card, it will be hand delivered.

Hmmm...I think it'll be great either way...although if you plan to mail it, you'll have to cut them off.

It's such a pretty card, Lyn, but IMHO I would cut them off! That way the flower seems to flow onto the card rather than be stuck on the card. Your embellishements are so pretty!

So pretty! I think it'd be ok either way. It's pretty neat with them not cut off

Hi Lyn, I love your card, the stamps you used and the colours. I think maybe to slice off the overhang.

That is such a lovely image/stamp though, if you wanted to make this card up another way and turned it around 90 deg. to the right, have the full flower sitting from the bottom of the flap. You could use it as a central highlight that way and your card would therefore open from the bottom up. Just another "take".

Hi Lyn How you going, I love this card and IMHO, I'd leave it just as it is. If you are hand delivering it, there's no problem with and awkward post size either. Hope the recipient loves it too.

Lyn your card is gorgeous but I think I would cut the 2 petals hanging over the side especially if you will be mailing.

It's a beautiful card! Since you will be hand delivering it, I wouldn't cut the petals.
