Make It Monday - How to cut half a die cut.

It is very easy to create a card with this fancy fold using the framelits.

To make this fancy fold card you will need:
Big Shot - full platform
Framelit set of your choice
5 1/2 X 8 1/2" card base
scraps and pieces to cut matching pieces with framelits to decorate card
stamp set and ink to stamp images with.
How tos:
Score card base in half at 4 1/4".
Score one side at 2 1/8".
Place the card base centered on the platform.  photo A
This way it is easier to handle the platform as it goes through the Big Shot.
Yes  I took photo A after I did the die cut. I forgot it! :) 
Yours won't have the cut in it already.
Line up the die centered on the 2 1/8" score line. photo B

Tip: If you use a shape without a point on it,
mark the center spot on the flat side on each end with a sharpie marker.
Set the clear plate over the narrow end of the card base. 
Lining the end of the plate up with the 2 1/8" score line.
I like to place the platform on the left end of the Big Shot with the top plate coming through
the Big Shot opening. photo A  It feeds through easier. 
You can also feed it through the Big Shot from one end. photo B
This cuts just the section the plate was laid over.
Fold your card into a Z fold.
Decorate card as shown in photos.

Happy stamping!
