It’s not corners, really, it’s the inside angles when you are doing “fussy” cutting, like on this leaf. I think of these as “armpit cuts.” Getting your scissors — even our sharp Stampin’ Up! Paper Snips — into those armpits is really challenging.
So here’s a tip: before you begin any cutting, use a punch similar in size to the armpit and punch right up to the image lines, as below. Here, I used a 1/8″ circle hand-held punch with the guard thingie removed, so that I can see where I’m punching.
Now that you have trimmed the armpit, you can make long cuts into that area — the awkward turn has already been made!
This is another project using the Embossed Re-inker Spread technique. If you try it, be prepared to let the paper dry completely — perhaps for an hour!
