"More Than One Score" Challenge #15 - Mother's Day/Special Lady

Welcome to the 13th Monthly Challenge here at Scor-Pal!
We love showing our projects to you and now it's your chance to show your creations to us!
Each month we will have a different theme and you will have a month to create and enter your projects. As well as the theme you will need to make "More Than One Score" and tell us where you used the Scor-Pal on your project. So a single fold card won't count but an Easel, Gatefold, Stair Step, etc will :) Also we love to see your "Anything But a Card" projects, just as long as you make "More Than One Score"
We have a very current theme this month, "THEME and More Than One Score".
Please note that you MUST include the theme as well as "More Than One Score", some people are not following the theme and therefore are not eligible for a Top 3 spot or the Prize, thanks. We have a nice set of samples from the Design Team, just click on their names to go to their blogs for more details on their creations.
The challenge ends at 10pm on May 31st and the new one starts on June 1st. Winners and our favorites will be revealed on June 5th.
This months featured Design Team member is Toni so please go and take a look at her blog for a more detailed post on her project.

Hello Crafty Friends!  Here I am in May with another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.  This month's theme is Mother's Day.  We hope you create something for your mother or a special mother that you know.  Last month, I made a pop-up card and this month I have a different variation.  Today's card features a pop-up on the inside.  I promise that it is fun and easy.  Let's get started!
For this project, you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • Scor-Mat
  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock for card base
  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock for insert
  • Additional card stock for layers on card front
  • Craft knife
  • Ruler
  • Paper snips
  • Stamps and ink
  • Markers for coloring
  • Rhinestone embellishments

  • Place the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card stock for insert into the Scor-Pal with the 8 1/2" side of the card stock against the top fence.  Score at 4 1/4" and burnish the fold.  Your folded insert will now measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" when folded.
     Place your Scor-Mat into the Scor-Pal and place your card insert with the folded side against the fence.  Cut slits 5/8" down at 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2", 3", 3 1/2" and 4".
    Open the card insert, like a book, and lay flat.  Score at 3 5/8" and 4 7/8" at the each side of the slits, as shown.
     Push the slits inside the card insert and burnish folds again.
     Open card insert.  The slits are now pop-up tabs.  Apply Scor-Tape to the front side of the pop-up tabs.  The pop-ups are now ready for mounting.
    Remove adhesive backing from the Scor-Tape and adhere letters.  In order to obscure the negative space created by the pop-up tabs, adhere the insert to a separate card base.  To create a border, close insert and trim 1/16" from the sides and bottom of the insert.  Do not trim the fold.
     Decorate your card front as desired.
    This concludes my tutorial for the May 2015 More Than One Score Mother's Day challenge.  

    Happy Scoring!
