I made this mother's day card last night. I drew the design freehand on a big piece of sketch paper (the design is about 12" by 9" or so at the widest parts) and then cut it out with a boxcutter. (Then I turned it over so my pencil marks would be on the back.) Then I quickly  wrote "Happy Mother's Day" and I kind of wish I had taken the time to actually space the letters properly. ;-) Oh well, mothers love what you make them, even if you do it hastily and sloppily.

FYI, for anyone wanting to try this, sketch paper is way too thin. It kept ripping while I was trying to cut it. Watercolor paper or cardstock would be much better.

It looks great! I can't imagine trying to cut tear-prone paper in such a detailed pattern.

Amazing, I would never have guessed you used a boxcutter to cut out all that detail!
