Technique Tuesdays

Take a look at this gorgeous Roxie paper. 

All of Close to My Heart's patterned paper is now  nice cardstock weight and I couldn't wait to play with it!

I knew that I wanted to use that beautiful floral paper and I choose the Enchantment Layout from the Magic "how to" book. 

The corner of a piece of cardstock covered the huge flower that I wanted to showcase.

So here is what I did:

I layed my piece of cardstock in its position on top of the floral paper
and made a tiny mark where it met the edges of the flower and surrounding design.

Then I used my microtip scissors to cut around the part of the design and the flower that I wanted to layover my cardstock.

Finally I put the layout together sliding the cardstock under the
slit in the flowered background and texture paper.

The final product was exactly the best of both worlds. 

A fantastic layout from Magic with a minor alteration to show off
the fabulous flower on the background and texture paper.

Come back tomorrow to check out Words for Wendesdays!
