Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is to make a card with an Aperture (opening/hole) and decorate around
the opening you have created. So, your stamped image is going to be inside your card.
This is a beautiful stamp from Northwoods Rubber Stamps.
Colored with Copics.
I used a 5x7 white card. I cute a scalloped circle in the card and
a piece of designer paper (Bunny Love 6x6 stack). I cut the designer paper to 5" wide.
Then I centered it on the front of the card and cut the die for both the card and the
designer paper at the same time, so that the opening is in the same place on the front of the card. The bunny punch at the bottom of the card is Martha Stewart.
Now for the fun. I pulled a bunch of punches and Sizzix dies out and punched swirls, flowers, branches and leaves out of white and pink paper. Then, I glued them around the Aperture opening in a pleasing design.
Be sure that you only glue small areas and they don't go over the edge of the cut out. This is so much fun, and it is hard to stop once you get started decorating. It adds such a lovely softness to the opening.
Hope you get a chance to try this technique. Thanks for stopping by today. Until later.....
