When it’s too big cut it in half.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today we are cutting things in half that are too big.

For today’s technique I want you to think that if it’s too big to fit on a card front, cut it! And don’t be afraid to cut it. What’s the worst that can happen? You mess it up and it goes in the trash. That’s the worst. I promise that no one will die.

Recently I received my Paper Pumpkin and it had a huge butterfly in it. It was designed to go on top of the box but instead I wanted it for a card. No matter how I turned it the accent was too big. Then I got an idea…cut it! So I cut it in half and now I have two more cards that I didn’t before. Here’s what they look like.

So which one do you like better? Can you believe those butterflies are the same? They look so different with the different colored backgrounds.

If you create a project from this technique please post to http://facebook.com/StampingWithJoni.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,
