Mid Month Scor-Pall Challenge Reminder and Tutorial

Hi there!

I'm back today with a reminder that we are halfway through the month of June. You still have time to join in the challenge on the Scor-Pal blog - just use some ribbon, lace, or trim, and 'More than one fold'!

I originally made this card for the monthly challenge using scraps on hand:

I'm back here today to show you how easy a gatefold card can be when you use your Scor-Pal!

You will start with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock.
Place the long side at the top of your Scor-Pal, and score at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".

Below, you can see the markings for a gatefold card, on the older Scor-Pal, the

Burnish score lines with Scoring Tool.  Cut a piece of white cardstock 4" x 5 1/4", and adhere to the inside center panel of your card, using Scor-Tape. Set aside.

Die cut or punch 2 sizes of your shape choice in coordinating colors. For this card, I used circles.
Die cut or punch 2 sizes of your shape choice in coordinating colors for sentiment. For this card, I used ovals.

Apply Scor-Tape to two 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" panels of patterned paper, and adhere to card front.

Add a little Scor-Tape to the larger circle to hold your ribbon in place.
Punch a hole, or slot in white panel for ribbon to slide through, and add Scor-Tape to the smaller circle.

Slip the ribbon through the slot, and adhere small circle to large circle.

Add Scor-Tape to just the left half or the large circle.

Adhere large circle to left side of card front.
Stamp sentiment on small oval, adhere to large oval, and adhere to card front.

Embellish as desired!

This card used more of the beautiful 12 x 12 cardstock and papers that DCWV had generously sent to Scor-Pal Owner, Diana Crick for us to design with. Isn't it pretty?  

We'd love to see your project linked up on our challenge this month!

I'm having so much fun with these products! With all of the fun and amazing products
that have come and gone during the many years I've been paper crafting, my Scor-Pal products
are something I reach for with nearly every project.  I'm so excited to have the new Scor-Pal Eighths board with the scoring grooves at every eighth inch.  It makes everything so easy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Very nice tutorial - I like the pink - just because and punching the slot on the sie for your ribbon is so smart - why didn't I think of that.

Lovely card Patti! The pink hues are so pretty and elegant... another great technique for closure. I just do boring stand up cards... you always add a nice fold or cut to your cards. :) Love it!
