Cut it Out

No I don't want you to stop reading my Blog!!!! In this case "Cut it Out" refers to the Less is More Challenge for this week!

"Cut it Out"
For this we would like to see some kind of hole or aperture in your card!

I had plenty of ideas for this challenge, however when I sat down to start work I completed one, only to realise that it was NOT Less is More & I got a bit carried away!!!!  So this is take 2 - and it is LiM :-)

I used a Little Claire Designs stamp from the 'Window' set and coloured it with my ProMarkers.  After cutting the aperture in the card I knew that I wanted to suspend the image inside of the aperture but had to think about how I wanted to do this.  I then found a piece of acetate sitting on the desk, after cutting a strip about 1cm wide I placed that behind the stamped image and use the card cut from the aperture to back the image (& hiding the acetate strip).

This close up shows the image suspended in the aperture...

I am also submitting this card in the I Love ProMarkers challenge for this week, which is "Anything Goes".

Don't Forget: If you want a chance to win my Blog Candy click here & follow the instructions.


  1. Super card Helen, it's a novel way of suspending your image!
