Question Inchies

Help!
I just bought a set of gorgeous (Darkroom Door) nature inchies. How the heck do I keep them straight when putting them on a card? I just don't seem to have a 'straight eye' LOL - is there a trick or am I just not meant to do this type of card???

Get one of the clear rulers with the zero in the center, I know Michael's has the 12" Zero Hero for only $3.00 and I liked mine so much I bought two and use them together at times.
It has a zero in the center with the same measurements going out to each side.

First use repositional tape and secure the cardstock to the work surface. Now line up the ruler to your card and also secure it to the work surface, zero is in the center of the cardstock. Now you have a guide for spacing with the measurements and the straight line of the ruler is also a great help for keeping the edges even.

Good luck with it!

Oh thanks - I do have a ruler - and Michael's is a bit far away, I'm in Australia LOL.
Appreciate the tip, I'll try it - love and happy crafting

Blossom you are not alone...I thought I was the only one who struggled with this. Thanks for the solution Roxie, I've got a center-zero ruler, can't wait to give it a go. Ahhhhh I love SCS. TFS

Or there's always the cheater method of stamping first then punching out with a square punch and mounting the square on your base (says the gal who can't stamp straight to save her life!)
