Pleating with card stock!!!

Hi Stamping Friends,

I used my new Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 $38.95 to make this pleated ribbon card. It's fast, easy and a great way to use some Designer Series Paper.

Step 1 : Buy A Simply Scored Tool! This is my favorite Stampin'Up product next to the BigShot!! It's better than the competitors because the score lines are every 1/8". It has a very comfortable scoring stylus with two different sized tips. Plus, it has markers that you can set up to help you quickly score more than one project.

Step 2: Cut a 1-1/2" x 12 piece of card stock.

Step 3: Lay the paper in the scoring tool. Start at 1" and score. Then score every 1-1/2" thereafter. (1", 2-1/2", 4", 5-1/2", 7", 8 1/2", 10", 11-1/2").

Step 4: Flip your card stock.

Step 5: Start at 1-1/2" and score. Score every 1-12/" thereafter. (1-1/2", 3", 4-1/2", 6", 7- 1/2", 9", 10-1/2")

Step 6: Pleat you card stock starting at the 1" end. Attach to your card base with adhesive and trim off the excess card stock. You'll have about 1/4" extra.

The card stock colors are More Mustard, Soft Suede & Baja Breeze. I used the New Spice Cake Designer Series Paper #124003 $13.50, Spice Cake Designer Fabric #124066 and the Spice Cake Designer Buttons # 124113 $10.50 on my card. I love how all the elements coordinate!!!!

The stamp set is Petite Pairs #122495 $35.95 (W) or #122497 $25.95 (C). It's a very versatile set with matching greetings for the inside and outside of your card.

Happy Stamping,
