1) With the Westcott TrimAir Premium Titanium Paper Trimmer, cut a piece of cardstock that is 5” x 3.5”. Next score the piece down the middle using the included scoring blade and fold it in half. Then cut a piece of decorative paper that is 3.5” x 2.5”. With a tape runner or glue stick, adhere the decorative paper onto the front of the card. Then stamp your image onto another piece of cardstock, using the Westcott Craft Self Healing Cutting Mat to protect your work surface.
2) Accent the details of the stamped image with colored pencils. The Westcott Axis iPoint Evolution Electric Heavy Duty Pencil Sharpener gives your pencils a super precise tip, which makes coloring all the little details super easy and convenient!
3) Next cut out the stamped image with the Westcott 6" Titanium Precision Scissors. These scissors feature a convenient precision micro tip. Their large handles give you extra cutting control, making them the perfect tool for fussy cuts and getting into all those tight and tricky spots!
