Now for today's projects brought to you by Scor-pal Designer Steph Ackerman


With a fun collection of Momenta papers and stickers to work with, it is easy to make an assortment of cards with the help of your Scor-pal.

Adorable Card
Cut blue cardstock 4 ½” x 11”.
To create the top fold, use a Scor-pal and score at 5 ½”.
To create the score lines at the bottom of the card, score at 10”, 10 ¼” and 10 ½”.
Corner round all edges.
Since these Momenta stickers are pliable, I was able to gently curve the banner stickers so they fit across the top of my card.
I then added a Momenta sentiment slightly above the first score line.


Friends Card

Cut blue cardstock 4 ½” x 11”.
To create the top fold, use a Scor-pal and score at 5 ½”.
Corner round all edges.
Cut pattern paper 4” x 5”, corner round edges and adhere to the card.
Cut pattern paper 3” x 4”.
Score 1” on both long edges.
Adhere puffy sentiment and then adhere to the card.





Graduation Easel Card

Cut blue cardstock 5 ½” x 11”.
Placing the long side on the Score-pal, score at 5 ½” and 8 ¼”.



Fold on the 5 1/2" scored line to create the card, then fold on the 8 1/4" scored line to create the tent fold. 



Cut another piece of cardstock 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and add to the tent to create the top layer the card.
Cut the striped paper 5 ¼” x 5 ¼” and adhere to the front of the card.



Cut the dotted paper 4 ½” x 4 ½”.
Score ½” around all four edges and add to card front.
Add a puffy sticker at the top scored line.
Stamp sentiment on blue cardstock in brown ink.

Ink the edges with brown ink and mat with brown cardstock.
Add to card front with foam adhesives for dimension.
Add GRAD stickers on the left side of the card.

Cut the blue print 5 ¼” x 5 ¼” and adhere to the card base.
Cut the dotted paper 2” x 5 ¼”.
Score ¼” on both long sides
Adhere to the card base.
Add a puffy sticker across the center which will be used to hold the easel upright.



Beautiful Card

Cut pink cardstock 4 ½” x 11”.
To create the top fold, use a Scor-pal and score at 5 ½”.
To create the score lines at the bottom of the card, score at 1/2", 3/4" and 1”.


Corner round all edges.
Turn card lengthwise and add the banner stickers
I then added a Momenta sentiment  along the first score line.


An embossed sticker was the perfect touch for the interior sentiment.


Supplies:
Scoring tool:  Scor-pal
Cardstock: Momenta Textured Cardstock
