Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain....

Today is a beautiful day; I love rainy weather with misty air and cloudy skies. But it's not so great for taking pictures of cards. I like natural light, but there just isn't enough today!

I made this card for the SCS Sketch Challenge, which you can see here. It was a lot of fun to make and a great sketch for using your beautiful designer paper.
Here is how you make the cuts:
1)Cut your first patterned paper to the size desired.
2)Line it up on the paper cutter corner to corner.
3)Now to make the second cut I taped the piece back together on the back side with a very small piece of removable tape and repeated the first cut. Repeat for the other patterned paper or plain card stock.
4)Separate and assemble your little puzzle!
It helps to tape it back together and treat it as a one piece of paper/cardstock.

Tip: If you have a hard time holding it steady on the cutter just use repositiong tape or even a post it to hold it in place.
