Diagonal Scoring Plate at Work

As promised, here are some finished projects made with Stampin' Up!'s new Diagonal Scoring Plate ...

How many times have you created a cute card but it was a different size than the standard card.  So, then you put it in a larger envelope and it's lost.  You try to squeeze it into a smaller envelope, but no luck.   Well, the diagonal scoring plate will solve this problem.  Here I made an envelope to fit the card I made using a folded sheet of cardstock and our Scallop Circle Bigz Dies (#113468 - pg 222).

I simply cut a piece of Paisley Petals DSP (pg 184) 8x8" and scored it at the 3 3/8" diagonal marking on all four sides.  Then I notched out the small triangle areas where the score lines intersect (you can use a square punch to do this), fold on the score lines and walaaaah, you've got an envelope to match any card you make.

The diagonal plate comes with cutting and scoring instructions for the basic envelope sizes, but I found it very easy to create any size envelope I needed.   Click here to see a video using this plate.

For the card below, we simply made the mini envelope (3 1/8" x 3 1/8" square) by cutting a piece of DSP 5" x 5" and scoring at 2 1/4" on all four sides.  Repeat the steps above.

While we affixed it to the card front here, you can make them out of plain white paper to fit all your 3x3" mini note cards.  Then, if you apply some glue from our 2-way glue pen (pg 206) to the edges of the top flap, close the flap for a second and re-open it and let the glue on both sides dry, you will have a resealable envelope!

I will be giving a demo at retreat showing just how easy this great addition to the scoring tool is!  If you need yours now, simply shop online now!   Happy scorin!
