Scoring "Something New"

I found a challenge that has a Scor Pal for the prize!!!!!!!! The Beary Sweet Design Challenge #2. Like totally wow, eh??? I've heard a lot about "scoring" when I watch/read tutorials, but I've never owned anything that does this! So this prize would be like a huge win for me! :) One catch though...the challenge is "Fancy Folds"  -- which is like totally out of my norm!!!!!! I'm the "fold the paper in half, create a card" type of girl...never done a fancy folding card (of any kind )!!!! So I'm totally out of my league here!

But I went for it! I thought -- what the heck! Even the crappy-est looking card gets an entry -- it is random draw prize, btw. :p So I gave it a shot. In fact, I tried TWO different techniques!!!!!!! And the totally amazing part is....

... they don't look bad!!!!!!!!! In fact, I actually LIKE them!!!!

Guess you want to see my creations already, eh???



The first one is a Criss Cross Card (Pocket Card): See a Tutorial

Basically it's a pocket with the note slipped in on the top. And a fancy band attached to the bottom.

Definitely a different kind of card for me! :)


Because the first card turned out so nice...I decided to attempt another technique.

This one is called "Triangle Trifold Card". See the tutorial

When it's opened it looks like this:

So that's basically it! I had a blast -- went out of my comfort zone...and now have two more amazing cards to add to my pile! :) TFL

...and lest anyone forgets -- I LOVE COMMENTS!!! :D


  1. Divinity, these are great! For not having done this before, I think you did a wonderful job. I understand, I am a fold-in-half to make a card kind of girl too. I love the Triangle Trifold, I will definitely have to try it. Thanks for playing along and good luck!

  4. Your Cards came out awesome and looks like you've make these kind of cards for a long time. Watch out once you start with the fancy folds you won't want to stop. Good luck in the Challenge and we hope to see you again.
