Applying a dash-fold line to create a card blank in brother scan and cut canvas workspace

Posted on 23rd June 2017

1- Open canvas workspace. Click on the shape tool.



2- Click on the shape you would like to use for your card blank. I picked a rectangle.


3- Change the size manually to create the full size of your card blank. For example. I want a 10 x 10 cm square card, so I changed the width and length to 20 x 10 cm.


4- We now need to add a dash line/score line so we can bend in half. Click on the path tool.


5- Click on the top point of the shape. With the shift key held, click the bottom of the shape to create the line. *By holding the shift key when creating a path, it will keep the path straight.


6- Select the path you created.


7- In the drop down box of line style, select the dash line.


8- Your line is now perforated ready to use as a fold line.We still need to ensure that the line is in the middle of the shape so it create a even card blank.


9- With the path selected, click on align tool and then centre alignment.


10- Now the path is aligned to the middle of the card, select both the path and the shape. Right click and group.

You now have a card blank to cut. This method can be used for all card blanks.
