Last week’s tutorial on Splitcoast was written by Melanie Schulenberg and titled Scherenschnitte. I was excited to try out this technique and used the Creative Stamping KOM kit Natural Beauty for my sample.

For my sample I started out with a 1 7/8″ square of ivory cardstock. Giving it all Meaning was stamped over it with Old Paper Distress ink. Then the bird from Natural Beauty was stamped in Black Stazon and then colored in with a black Copic Marker. The edges were distressed and sponged with Old Paper. Then it was layered on a Scallop Edge Medallion created out of black cardstock. The frame was layered on two Square Scallop Nestabilities die cuts.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Gina K. Luxury Ivory cardstock folded in half. The edges of the card front were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. A 3 3/4″ square of patterned paper from the Natural Beauty kit was lightly sanded and sponged with Vintage Photo ink before it was stitched to a slightly bigger piece of Basic Black cardstock.

The sentiment is also from the Natural Beauty kit. It was stamped in Black Stazon on Vanilla cardstock, punched out with the large oval punch and adhered ot a large oval Hardware piece from Stampin’ Up!’s retired Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware kit. The right side of the hardware piece was topped with a Prima Flower and a Copper Making Memories Brad. Three of the corners were topped with Kaisercraft Pearls.


For the inside of the card I used some of the elements that I used on the card front.
