Scherenschnitte Birthday Card

scherenschnitte birthday card

I discovered a huge site, Basteln mit Elizabeth, full of scherenschnitte designs and other paper crafts. If you don't read German you'll have to click around a bit to see what the categories are.

The design I used was nice and crisp and easy to trace using RoboMaster. You will have to do a fair amount of picking away the little cut out pieces but the results are worth it.

I cut the design from Bristol weight card stock. There is a rectangle of pink just under the words in the center. The inside of the card is lined with the red and pink dot shown in the bottom right hand corner.

You are welcome to download and use my finished GSD file.
