Q: Should I decorate the inside of my card? What about the envelope?

A:  You can decorate the inside of the card.  Even simple little pieces like corners added around the sentiment makes a great look and continues the theme from the outside in. Stickers, stamps and die cuts are great to use for this. Envelopes can be easily stamped and colored, too.  Keep in mind when decorating any envelope that is to be mailed that the embellishments need to be secured tightly so they aren’t able to be caught in the postal machines.

Q: Sometimes when I use my paper trimmer I still manage to cut crooked.  How can I make sure that doesn’t happen?

A: Often it’s just a matter of making sure the paper is correctly lined up in the trimmer.  One easy way to make the perfect cut is to use a scoring board and score a small line at the top and bottom of your paper at the inch mark you will be cutting.  Place the paper in your trimmer, lining up the score marks in the blade groove and your good to go.  No more crooked cuts!
