Tip - The correct way to Fold Cardstock after Scoring

I'm hoping today's tip video will help paper crafters understand the correct way to fold your cardstock once you have scored it.  It's an age old question, do I fold the paper towards the score or away from the score.  Sometimes the answer is simple but actually seeing it happen, helps it sink in.  So you're saying well which is it, here's your answer.  When you score cardstock, you are actually stretching the fibers in the paper, which means you want to fold AWAY from the score line.  Another way to say this is the valley of the scored line should be on the outside of your card.

  4. Michele, when I taught classes I always told students to fold the card "with the mountain in the middle". I have one student that I still hear say "mountain in the middle" as she folds her cards. It's just a little memory trick that helps. Away from the fold or mountain in the middle, whichever works. Nice video.

  5. Hi Michele, I'm from Canada, and I love to make cards. Now, I saw your tip, which is great, but I was told & shown differently. Yes, when you score lines on cardstock , it does crush the paper fibres, and as you stated in your video, it does depend on your cardstock you use. I was taught to turn my cardstock over and re-score the other side of the cardstock. This also crushes the fibers once more. By doing this way, you need not worry about the cardstock cracking, and you do not have to worry about which way the cardstock is folded.
