When I was younger my mom always loved Scherenschnitte (means "scissors cutting" and is the German and Swiss art of paper cutting.) So for mother's day last year I made her and my boyfriend's mom these cards. I didn't take pictures of the insides of the cards, but I used my typewriter and typed different poems for each of them onto pink card stock that matched the pink envelopes. I found the designs online, printed them out, used a sunny window to trace them onto cardstock then used small scissors and a small razor blade to cut them out.



My mom's card:

Hers is the more elaborate one.

My boyfriend's mom's card:

My fingers hurt so bad after cutting these out, but it was worth it. They both absolutely loved their cards. My mom framed hers.

I would love to get into paper cutting. Did you use a pattern? Great work.
