Gatefold Card with Scor-Pal
by Beate Johns
Create this trifold card in a matter of minutes with the Scor-Pal™.
- 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of Cardstock, or any width, but 8 1/2" long
- additional cardstock, designer paper and embellishments, to finish the card
Place your 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock in the top right corner. Place your scoring tool on the 2 1/8" marking and add a score there.
You can see two little dots on the top ruler of your Scor-Pal™. These are special markings for gatefold card scores.
Don't move your paper! Just move your Scor-Tool down to the 6 3/8" mark and add another score there.
Your cardstock will look like this.
Use your Scor-Tool to prefold your score lines.
Decorate your card front.
Decorate the inside of your card to finish the card.
Try different sizes
To figure out where your scores should be, divide your card width in 4 (eg. 6" x 4= 1 1/2") and score at 1/4 of your width (1 1/2") and 3/4 (4 1/2").
