Sherri - try spritzing just a bit of water or alcohol along the score line before you fold and give it a minute or two to soak in. That should make the cardstock a little more pliable and help the fibers to bend instead of break.

I haven't had the problem with cracking, and I suspect it's because my crafting cave is in the basement and it's a little more humid down there. I do remember someone else posting with the same cracking problem, and she lived in Arizona, so, d-r-y.
