Now for today's project by Scor-pal Designer Steph Ackerman.

Really Reasonable Ribbon has a wide variety of ribbons in many styles and assorted sizes.  I was lucky enough to get some awesome ribbon to work with for this week long feature/

My Friendship card was easy to create using my Scor-Pal.


I cut the cardstock 5 1/2" x 11", then scored at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4". 


To create the scored lines on the outer panels, I scored vertically every 1/4".

I cut cardstock and pattern paper 4", 3 1/2", 3", and 2 3/4".  After stamping on the smaller piece, I adhered all layers together and assembled my card.   I then cut through the center to create the card opening.  I restamped the image in black and cut out friend and the butterfly which I then adhered with foam adhesives for dimension.



The belly band was cut 1 1/2" wide by 12" long to allow for overlapping in the back.  The ribbon was wrapped around the belly band and tied in the front.  An additional piece of twine was then added to the knot. 


A sentiment was stamped inside in black ink and is visible when the belly band is removed.

This little purse doubles as a gift card/cash holder.   It's quite easy to make with the use of my Scor-pal.  I cut pattern paper 6" x 6" and then scored at the 3" center.  After folding, I cut 1" off the edges on an angel to create the side panels.  The top flap was created using Spellbinders Labels 10 and was adhered to the purse with Scor-Tape.

Ribbon was added through holes punched in the flap, then tied off inside the purse.  A pocket was added to hold the gift card/cash.


To create this wedding card, I cut cardstock 5 1/2" x 11".  After scoring at the center (5 1/2"), I then scored every 1/2" to create the vertical lines.  Then, I flipped the card around and scored again creating the box pattern you see here.


To keep the focus on the stamped image, I kept the card simple.  I tied some ribbon around the card and die cut a black and white oval.  I stamped the couple on white cadstock and cut them out.  They were added to the oval with foam adhesives for dimension.  The sentiment was stamped and adhered to the ribbon with a paper tagger.

Love how subtle but elegant scoring on a card can be! Great projects!

Miriam Prantner said...

I can't even remember how I first heard about Scor-pal. I think probably through a hop with one of the stamp companies I follow.

Tammy B said...

love that gate fold card, one of my favorite color combos!

Tammy B said...

i don't remember exactly how i heard about SP, i just remember how it revolutionized paper crafting and the excitement surround it. probably on a blog or 2 that i read.

Naomi said...

Very cute!

Bonnie said...

Very nice cards. I particularly love the wedding card with the neat grid lines. Great effect!

Carmen Nuland said...

I really don't remember how I heard. I think it was from reading all sorts of great card-making blogs

Dorina D said...

Gorgeous cards. I love the wedding card and am going to scraplift it for some upcoming weddings. TFS

Dorina D said...

My LSS (now out of business) introduced me to Scor Pal about 4 yrs ago. Love it. Have given it as gifts to friends & family. We love making treat boxes for the kids at school with ours.

Lucy said...

Surely, that posted deadline is incorrect, but I'll comment anyway. I first used and heard about the Scor-Pal at a cardmaking event a SU! demonstrator had. It was instant love at first sight/use.

Lucy said...

I really like the scored lines that add such a subtle but distinctive touch to the cards. The wedding checkerboard is especially nice to let the image stand on its own.

The lines on the first card add SO much! Love it.

sharon g said...

I may have heard of you at the CHA. Not sure.

Really Reasonable Ribbon asked me to stop by to say hi for them.

Lovely cards and purse! The scoring really makes them special.

I am pretty sure I found out about Scor-pal from splitcoaststampers.

seau said...

Nice cards and projects. I especially like the little purse gift card holder. Gosh I don't know where I heard about the Scorepal scoring board. I'm thinking it was as some card class I took at a local scrapbooking store about 6 years ago.

The kraft paper almost looks like cardboard. I love the look it gives.

Jennie P. said...

I first heard of the scor-pal through a blog hop! That's why I love blog hops.

Lovely projects! I love using score lines as a design element and you did a great job with these.
TFS!

Kristie Maynard said...

How did I hear about Score Pal? I don't remember exactly where, but I'm pretty sure I first saw it on someones blog. Since then I have seen them in too many places to name.

Denny said...

You have out done yourself...not just one project, but 3! Each one of them is terrific. Boy that purse really IS easy with the scor pal

Denny said...

I remember exactly where I first found out about scor-pal. I was at a friend's house with some ladies from church and we were all making Christmas cards. This was new to me and I asked my friend how she folded everything so perfectly. Well, she went running over to her craft area and pulled out her scor-pal and was gushing about everything it does and how she couldn't live without it! It was so funny! But I will never forget my introduction to the scor-pal because of it ;)

Kimberly said...

I first heard of Scorpal while looking for an instructional video on making a card. The person in the video used a Scorpal and I was amazed!

I love the embossing on the Hello Friend card and the wedding card. The little purse/gift card holder is so cute. Great idea!
