Directions for Stampin Up Masculine Card:
- To make a point on the black 2″x 3.25″ cardstock: With a pencil, mark 1″ on each side of the 2″ side of the cardstock. Mark 1 5/8″ in the center of the 3.25″ side. Place paper in paper trimmer at a diagonal in the cutting groove so that it cuts from the 1″ mark to the 1 5/8″ mark. Repeat for the other side.
- To make a point on the vanilla 3.25″ x 4.25″ cardstock: With a pencil, mark 1.75″ on the 4.25″ on each side of the 4.25″ side of the cardstock. Mark 1 5/8″ in the center of the 3.25″ side. Place paper in paper trimmer at a diagonal in the cutting groove so that it cuts from the 1.75″ mark to the 1 5/8″ mark. Repeat for other side.
- Adhere the black cardstock with the point behind the vanilla with the point so edges are lined up side to side and enough black is showing.
