swing card using X Cut shape cutter



Back to using my favourite gadget- X cut shaper cutter and circle set. I used a half circle cut from the centre of the front of the card (cutting circle on the left hand side), does that make sense? And folded the card back over the circle.
I then decorated the card with "Simply Elegant" papers by Papermania - the 2 small panels are a sheet of the Oriental Spice collection overstamped with a swirly Papermania border stamp. The fabric butterflies are the PM ffabric embellishments and the gems are PM adhesive gem shapes.
The focus of the card is a black and white photo of dd that I've added text to - We give you roots so that you may have wings to fly. It think it would make a fab 18th/21st card with a bit of tweaking (although I've a long time to wait for that).
I made it for the challenge at sisterhood of the stamping 18 - the theme this week was "flying", although mine has only a teeny bit of stamping.
