Scissors Cutting - scherenschnitte

The detail in this 'scissors cutting' work is amazingly beautiful.

"Scherenschnitte Design by Arlene France, Lititz, PA. The art of "Scherenschnitte", or scissors cutting, is an old German-Swiss art done originally by the religious orders and brought to the U.S. by the Pennsylvania-Dutch immigrants in the 1700's."

I just realized I should submit this to

  1. That was cut with scissors? What extraordinary find, Sissy--this is truly lovely.

  2. That may take some time to cut out... :D Lovely heart though!

  3. When I enlarged it I could see just how much detail there is, amazing. Great heart too.

  4. This is so lovely. The work must take a long time and very tiny pointed scissors. Thank you for sharing this beautiful heart. I also enlarged it so I could see all the detail. WOW!
