Mitered Corners

I have several of the SAR (Some Assembly Required) sets and have made them by stamping and cutting, but these dies are great!! Here's a card I made that uses a technique I teach often of how to miter the corners when wheeling a border around the edges. In this example, I used the clear embossing cartridge and the Baroque Border wheel from Stampin' Up! The directions for the mitered corners are in a PDF file on the right. This card opens and was stamped with the Christ is Born stamp set with fluid chalks and the pop-up tree that was all cut with the new XL Christmas tree die. Here's a shot of the inside of the card:
