Cut It Out

The challenge this week at Less is More is to have a hole or some kind of aperture in your card - take a look at what I made today



I cut my aperture using my rectangular Nesties on my Cuttlebug and kept the bit I cut out to use to stamp my sentiment on. The stamp set I used is SU Precious Butterflies and is stamped in Old Olive and Melon Mambo ink.
Here is a close up of the aperture


My sentiment was stamped from the same set and the onto the piece of card stock from my aperture. It was then attached using 3D foam pads. The cut out flourish was attached using a fine glue pen and also some pieces of 3D foam pad cut very small. The butterflies are also cut out and mounted in the same way.
Thanks for looking today - see you soon - Jacqueline xx
