LIM Week 51 - Cut It Out

Hi bloggers!
At Less Is More this week Chrissie and Mandi have set the challenge for us to make a card with an aperture. I'm late entering mine, because I got aperture brain blockage, and lost my mojo.  Then, last night all the fuzziness in my head left, and I made TWO cards for the challenge!!

For my first card I cut an aperture with Spellbinders labels twenty.  On the piece I cut out, I stamped with JustRite Fleur De Lis Labels Twenty using ruby satin Colorbox pigment ink and clear embosiing powder, then inserted the label inside my card.  I cut a butterfly and leaves for the edge of the aperture.

For my second card, I dry embossed the front, then cut out my heart shape.  Once again I used the cut shape inside my card. I inked the edge of the heart with red chalk ink, coloured the bluebirds and heart with PM's and used a little glossy accents on the heart. I computer generated my own words.
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy the rest of your day x
