How to Make an Abstract Greeting Card Using a Fiskars ProCision Rotary Bypass Trimmer

This tutorial is brought to you by Jade Harrington aka Jaderbomb. Also, be sure to check out a full review of the Fiskars ProCision Rotary Bypass Trimmer.

I love getting cards in the mail. It’s not often that happens because we have so much technology. BUT, what if you changed that! Once a month you should make ONE card and send it to someone special. That’s not hard right? Once I show you this tutorial you might end up doing 5 cards a month because it’s super chic, contemporary and cute.

Let’s get started, you will need:

Fiskars – ProCision – 12 Inch Rotary Bypass Trimmer
-Scrapbook Paper
-Craft Knife

Use paper that makes you smile. If you know who you are sending it to you could even design the card completely around them!


Get the paper that you want to use for the card. I used a piece of paper that looks like a notebook. I did this because I wanted it to look neat when I wrote inside. Simply fold your sheet of paper (8×10) in half, then fold it again in half.

Use your cutter and cut different size strips.


Start by making a small incision with your craft knife to the end of your paper. You want to be careful when doing this because you don’t want to cut a strip too big. You will slide your strips of paper through the slits then tape the back. I love this project because you can be super creative and overlap your paper as much as you like.

I made an abstract initial, a T. I then added different strips along the top to dress it up. Don’t be afraid to create a beautiful abstract card. Enjoy! I hope in return you will get a card in the mail, it’s super fun and brings you back to how things used to be.
