BSS Monday Idea - CUT IT UP

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Hope everyone had a nice Easter.  Was sure nice to see the warmer temps and sun for a change.

This weeks idea, CUT IT UP, is an idea I saw on the PaperTrey site last week.

A simple card, but elegant.  Simply stamp the image and color
on a piece of card stock that will be large enough for your stamp and
will work with your card size.
 Cut the image wherever you decide to.  
Use  foam tape or pop dots on the back of the two pieces. 
Cut a small piece of coordinating card stock to fill in the space between your
two pieces of your image.  Adhere the three pieces on your card front.

What I used

Stamp - Penny Black - Dailia Dance (4380K)
Designer paper - Graphic 45 Le Romantique Collection
Card is 5x7, mat is 43/4 x 6 3/4 inches
Sponged edges of image with Vintage Photo distress ink
Green dotted ribbon
Colored with Copic Markers.
Fran-Tage Chunky White enamel.

Try different cuts, like on the diagonal or up and down.
You could also stamp a sentiment in the opening.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later....
