Cutting on the Fold

Hello My Friends,
Today I wanted to share a quick technique on how to make some simple flower cards that are cut on the fold.
Here's how to do it.
Cut a piece of card stock big enough to fit your die cut, fold the card stock in half.  Isn't this GUAVA CARDSTOCK so pretty!
Place your die so that a portion of the blade is hanging over the edge of the fold. Place your top cutting pad and die cut. This is a perfect example of how awesome the MAGNETIC PLATFORM is... it holds your die in place perfectly!

You can see in this photo that the top two petals are cut off, this is where the fold of your card is.

We made these flower cards with Candy, Bubblegum and Lemonade card stock and embellishments from the February Card Kit. They also make adorable gift tags if you just punch a hole and add some twine.
Happy Stamping!
