"Impossible card" cutting/scoring die
 
I'm looking for another shortcut...

Has anyone seen a die for the currently popular "impossible card"? It looks like it would be a pretty simple die to design.

Thanks!

It's so easy to make that a die hardly seems worth it. It's really just three cuts and one score. I haven't noticed anybody mention that they used a die.

Here's a tutorial that handily has a photo of the measurements - though they can be changed:

Thanks for the information-I know it's an easy card, but when my card making group sees rulers and pencils on the table, they panic.

I think t-rulers make measuring so much simpler - because they actually can eliminate having to measure top plus bottom, or both sides. A local arts supply store sells them for $1.99. Maybe getting an Exciting! New! Tool! would help their panic dissipate. ;)

Have you used the tutorial in this site? I liked Dina's video and ideas.

The thing about it is that, apart from scoring along the centre if you want it to fit in a regular envelope, the measurements for the cuts aren't at all critical and can be varied at will, though typically the top cut is also at the centre. It's one of the most forgiving folds I can think of, in that respect.

Aww, thank you!

It is a very forgiving one. Maybe a square card would have the easiest measurements for your group? 6" card base, scored at 3", cut on one side at 3", and on the other side at 1-1/2" and 4-1/2"? All those measurements make tidy panels. You can use your paper trimmer for the cuts.
