All Good in the Scherensnitte Hood

I haven't been working on very many art/craft projects around here. All of this walking & making sure there's always milk in the house, I suppose. I'm not used to doing it all. I have several projects that are sort of stalled right now. Promise to share when they're done. But I was looking around blogland today and found (thank you, Extreme Cards & Papercrafting) a German site filled with Sherensnitte patterns of all sorts. Balsten mit Elisabeth has a lot of really pretty designs of varying difficulty, and a lot of text I don't understand. And then there's this:

I'm officially cutting paper tonight.

Do you hand cut or machine cut? That looks very perfect.

At least you can be pretty sure THIS one doesn't translate to "bug off, I hate your guts" :0

Our friend Google translate is going to get a workout, eh?

That image is from the Balsten mit Elisabeth website. I should have been more clear. But yes, I love the clarity of the message in this one!
I hand cut, but I use an x-acto/scissor combination. I hear the Germans would frown on my x-acto shortcut, but it works for me. Thanks for stopping by.
