Today My Favorite Things Stamps have hooked up with Scor-Pal for a little blog hop of inspiration. The Scor-Pal is an amazing and versatile scoring tool that simplifies paper folding for such crafts as cardmaking and scrapbooking. If you are starting cardmaking I can strongly recommend you a Scor-Pal (I am using mine with every single card I make!) your card folds look so much more nice and clean and don't forget all the fun projects you can make with this must have tool! I am sharing a little tutorial with you with how to make a gate fold card. It was one of the first projects I've made when I started to use the Scor-Pal, easy and fun!
Step 1, take your Scor-Pal (s). I use both the Buddy and the Scor-Pal (I have the older version the new one has much more grooves!) I use them both because the big one is perfect as working space and the Buddy as the place where I arrange my card on. Ofcourse it's perfect to take with you when you go on vacation or to a friend for a craft date!
Step 2, take a piece of cardstock 6 x 12 and fold on 3 and 9 inch
Step 3, fold with the Score Tool
Step 4, arrange your card on the Buddy and choose your stamps and Die-namics. I used Pure Innocence Popping By and the Oval Dainty Doily Die-namics I stamped with black Memento ink.
Step 5, cut a piece of cardstock 11 inch x 1,5 inch and a piece of 5 x 1,5 inch. Glue them together.
Step 6, fold on 6 1/8.... twice and glue together
Step 7, see if the band fits onto the card, decorate the front panels of the card with designpaper
Step 8, decorate the band, I've made it extra special by adding the Crown Border Die-namics and glue everything together. Because the MFT At the Movies Stamps and Die set fits so perfectly with this Pure Innocence girl I've decided to use these to embellish the card. PI is colored with Copic Sketches.
Step 9, decorate the inside of the card. I always love to repeat the stamp which I also used on the front of a card.
