Rhea, from Rhea Stamps, left me a comment a few days ago about how to make the scallop square cards I often put together (I love them!). Well, my friend Robin, About a Girl, showed me this quick and easy trick to make the scallop square card PERFECT! A lot of people just make a fold and cut the squares with the fold just inside the cutting blades. But that makes the card lobsided ... so here's Robin's trick :
Step 1 : Cut out TWO scallop squares using your Big Shot and Bigz Die
Step 2 : Score ONE of the scallop squares at the first indented scallop. On the Stampin' Up Simply Scored Tool it's at 1/2". (well, it would be at 1/2" on ANY scoring tool but I just wanted to say Stampin' Up Simply Scored Tool because it's the best one there is) ....
Step 3 : Using Sticky Strip (or strong glue), stick the scored back piece to the front.
