Rachael- fussy cutting chipboard technique

I love fussy cutting and when I saw the chipboard roses I just wanted to get at it with the scissors but obviously where it was chipboard it was a bit difficult. I decided to have a go at splitting the chipboard..

I started by running the knife very carefully horizontally through the chipboard.

Once I had made a start with the knife I peeled the rest apart by hand doing it very slowly to make sure it didn't rip.

I was left with this, the top layer was still thicker than normal paper but I was able to cut around the image.

When I saw the first image, I was wondering why you even needed to fussy cut it, but seeing how it turned out I can see why. Just stunning!
