A rectangle from a square!

Happy Saturday!

Today I have a tutorial for you. I purchased the new SU! Exclusive Scallop Square die. I even made a square card with it. You can see it here. I wanted to be able to use it for a regular-sized card. I made a rectangle with the die that can be used on a regular A2 card. :) Click on any of the pictures for a larger look.

1. Cut a piece of cardstock to 5" X 4". Place on your die as shown and run through the Big Shot or other die-cutting machine.

2. Take your 3-sided scalloped piece and place it on the die with your scallops lined up inside the die.

3. Here is the finished piece! The final measurements are 4 3/8" X 3 1/2".

Here's the card I made with the first rectangle. It's just a quickie to show the size. I'll post another card using the Tempting Turquiose rectangle when I get it finished. :)

I'd love to see what you create with your rectangles! Make sure you leave me a comment with a link!
