In My Cardmaking Process- part two, I showed you how I get four 5 x 7 cuts from 12 x 12 inch paper. Today, I'll show you that same process for A2 size (aka Invitation or note card). I make this size card about 75% of the time.
This time 5 1/2 is going to be the magic number and it doesn't matter if your paper isn't true 12 x 12. Start by trimming the paper to 9 3/4" square.
Step 1: Take your 9 3/4 inch square and line it up at 5 1/2 inch mark.
Start the blade at 5 1/2 inch mark and cut by bringing it back to 0.
Step 3. Quarter turn to the right repeat (Start blade at the 5 1/2 inch mark and cut by bringing it back to 0.) Remove second piece.
