Toni has a challenge today to do some fussy cutting. With all the dies out there, it's becoming a dying art. It feels good to take our basic scissors and do some cutting. I needed a sympathy card...so I took an embossing folder and cut out just the portion I wanted...added some piercing to it. I made the circles by using my eyelet punch. Added the sentiment and a tiny butterfly. tfl

Linda, you never fail to teach me something I hadn't thought of before. NEVER thought of cutting out part of an embossed sheet - it's brilliant! And using the hole punch in strategic places makes this look like paper lace (Battenburg?). This card is gorgeous, and very soothing and comforting for its purpose. Thanks for sharing!
