Pals May Blog Hop: More Than One Score



Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.



More than one score, fun folds or 3D items....Oh boy, if you know me you know this was certainly a challenge!  I don't enjoy constructing 3D items and I am kind of traditional in my 'style'. So I hit up Pinterest for some extra scoring inspiration! I found just the thing way back in 2015 from Chris Slogar of Buckeye Inklings. Shout out to Chris for my CASE.  


This looks super easy, and it really was. The only tricky part is the cut...  Here is how I did it:

Start with a basic card base.
Place your paper back in the trimmer and edge it to 3 inches. Then make a cut from the 2 1/2 mark to the 4 7/8 mark.
Rotate your paper and edge it again to the 3 inch mark, then cut from the 5/8 inch mark to the 3 inch mark.
Your cut will look like this.
 

Flip and fold down the area you cut. Easy! And yes, that counts as two scores!  šŸ˜‰




I added the sentiment square to cover the cut on the inside

It's always fun to challenge yourself. I do a lot of challenges, because if forces me to be more creative and sometimes to think totally out of the box. Check out my Card Challenge Page.


More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 12, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Anything with Wings” projects. Don’t miss the fun!
