Does anyone else besides me have a difficult time figuring out how to cut these angles? I sure could use a good tip, if you have one. This is for today's sketch challenge. It's graduation time, and I needed a masculine one, and I love the richness of these papers. I used the rectangle from Solid Shapes to stamp close to cocoa over the words (stamped off twice before stamping over words) and also sponged the edges in the same color. TFL!

Nice masculine card! I like the piercing, it adds just enough of that extra something that makes a card great!
For the angle, what I did was start with a rectangle 3.5 inches high by 4 inches wide. I marked the center on one short edge and cut from a corner to the mark, then cut from the other corner to the mark. I had 3 triangles: one big one and two scraps that were half as big as the big one. One scrap became the little triangle. One side of it was right, so I determined the other angle by laying the good big triangle over it, drew a line, and cut it. (Like how Barb described it, above.) If this is not clear, you can PM me.
