Partial Cuts

There’s a cute sample in the Stampin’ Up! spring catalog that Sandy & I wanted to try.  It uses a framelit to make a partial cut on a fold.  I decided to make a tutorial today with instructions.

This is the completed project.  See how the  of the cut-out is above the fold?

Here’s what I did.  First cut a 4-1/4″ x 8″ strip of card stock.  Fold in half to create a 4-1/4″ wide x 4″ tall card.

I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig for this step.  Stamp the image so it’s centered on the fold of the card.  If this card looks a little long to you, it is.  I cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ strip, then realized it would be too tall for the envelope.  It was later trimmed to 4-1/4″ x 8″.

Stack your Big Shot “sandwich,” with the multipurpose platform (tab 2), bottom cutting plate, card stock and framelit.  Place the top cutting plate with the edge over the card fold.  You only want the plate to cover the area to be cut (i.e. – the back – which can be either side right now).  Roll through the Big Shot.

That’s all there is to it!  Here’s the finished card from the side.
