And now for the card:) This is one of those sneaky technique cards. It *looks* easy. After all, how hard can it be to cut a straight line. Turns out, it is tricky to cut the banner triangles at an angle and have them perfectly staggered. The job was made a 100X easier with my new ruler:)
I started sewing way before I started paper crafting, so I'm pretty comfortable cutting fabric with a ruler and a rotary cutter. When I first started paper crafting I used some of the same plastic rulers and my rotary cutter. Turns out they don't work so well with paper. So when I got a chance to work with the Perfect Ruler, I wasn't sure how I would fare. I was happy to find that the metal edge of the ruler works fantastically with an Xacto knife. Love the crisp cuts it gives. Plus it has this gripper thing that stops the ruler from sliding around (another must when working with a sharp razor). Here's a close up of the cuts.
