LIM51

The critrea for Less is More challenge this week is - 
 
Onto this week and it's theme time, we have chosen
"Cut it Out"
For this we would like to see some kind of hole 
or aperture in your card!
 
I think I have enough time left to add it, late as usual :)  It's for an engagement, so I thought I would try the hole in the card, I've not done anything like it before.  I think it's OK, but thought I'd show it to you anyway, nothing like the incredible cards entered on Less is More though.
 
The hole was cut with my Cricut, the hearts were cut with a punch, I added bling I bought in The Range to make it look like an engagement ring, I cut the corner of the card, traced around a glass. Then added some Glamour dust on the outside ring to make a little more sparkle. I added the centre cut out piece of the outside ring to the inside after stamping - yes stamping! a sentiment.  Very simple!
