BSS MONDAY IDEA - Cut Away Sentiment Space

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is a Decorative Edge Cut Away Sentiment Space.
These "Chicks are racing toward Easter Fast!

OK, easy peasy and such a fun look.
Decide on the size of your card, mine is 6x5 inches.
I used a hot pink textured card stock for the base card.
Cut a piece of designer paper to fit the front of your card.
Decide what you will use on the front of your card and lay it out,
leaving space at the bottom for a sentiment .
Using a die or decorative edge scissors ( I have a drawer full I haven't used in
a long time and they came in handy for this card) mark the back of your
designer paper where you want to cut. Adhere the top piece of the designer paper
in place and decorate your card. Now, see how much space you need for the
sentiment you chose and cut the straight edge of the bottom piece of the
decorative paper and adhere it to the bottom edge of the card.
Now you have the space to add your sentiment.
I used a stamp from Northwoods Rubber Stamps N9010. The Chevron Paper is
Simple Stories, Snap Color Vibe 6x6 paper pad. The Rickrack punch is EK Success.
Kaiser pearls and a Happy Easter Stamp from Hero finishes it off.
This technique works well on the inside of a card too.
Small sentiments work best.
Hope you get a chance to try this little trick.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday.  Until later........
