2S4Y & Scor-it

I made this Note Card & Envelope Pocket Card using my fabulous Scor-it! It is a scoring tool that is absolutely invaluable to cardmakers and scrapbookers. It makes folding cards so easy. Just place your paper face down, score and fold - VOILA! You can get all the details on the Scor-it, how-to's and an inspiring gallery at: The following is a Tutorial on how to make the Note Card & Envelope Pocket Card. The cover is based off of my sketch on 2 Sketches 4 You where Card of the Week could win you a Scor-it Mini and matching Tote Bag:
Step 1:
Take a sheet of 12 x 12 double sided patterned paper. My sample has a plain red design on the back and a decorative green nature design on the front. Flip your paper over so the back is facing up and score down the middle of your pages. Rotate the page to the other side and score down the middle once again. Your page will now be divided into 4 squares with scored lines forming a cross from side to side.
Step 2:
Take the top left hand corner of your pages and gently fold it in to the middle line (forming a triangle). Position your page so that the crease line lies along your score board blade and score on that line. It will make folding so much neater and easier if you are using heavier cardstock.
Step 3:
Follow the same procedure as Step 2 with the right corner of your page.
Step 4:
Fold the point of your page down, following one of your original score lines, so that it touches the bottom of your page.
Step 5:
Fold your point back to touch the top of your fold line.
Step 6:
Fold your card in half and you have the making of a folded card that can hold little notes and matching envelopes. The cover can be embellished and decorated to suite your fancy. I attached a ribbon to mine so that I can tie it up and everything stays neatly in place and I used the gorgeous Medium Curly Christmas Tree Stamp (J114) from DeNami Design. The tree is colored in with Sakura Glaze Pens

Have a wonderful Monday :) Kazan
