A standard size card is five and a half, by
four and a quarter, and what I’m going to show you, is the correct way to fold a card
,and what you’re going to do, is once you’ve cut your card, your cardstock, and I usually
take an eight and a half by eleven piece of cardstock, and just cut it in half, so I can
get two cards, because I like to be frugal, and then I’m going to go ahead and score it,
at four and a quarter, and on cardstock, you can go back and forth a couple of times. Give
yourself a nice score line, and then all you’re going to do, is go ahead and fold the edges
up. Bring them up so they match, and push it down.If you have a thicker cardstock, you
can also use your bone folder, to hold that edge down. You get a nice, crisp fold every
time, so let me show you that again. At four and a quarter, go ahead, give it a nice score.
Bring both edges together, and your card is ready to go. The other thing you can do, besides
a standard card, is using your twelve by twelve paper. You can go ahead and make some three
by three cards, so in order to do that, I’m going to cut this at six, right down my paper,
because I like to get as many cards as I can, out of a sheet of paper, and then I’m going
to go ahead, and cut these at three, so I can get eight, three by three cards, out of
one twelve by twelve piece of paper, and then the same thing again. I’m going to score it.
I know my length is six, so I’m going to score at three. Score, score, fold together, perfectly
scored cards every time. I’m Janet Castro, your independent Demonstrator with Stampin
