"More Than One Score at Scor-Pal" Challenge - Hearts a Flutter

A new month means a new challenge at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and this time we are looking for your "Hearts A Flutter" themed projects.
You make an "Anything But a Card", a card with a fancy fold, anything as long as it has more than a single score and that you let us know where you used your Scor-Pal in the project.

This year we are rotating our design team so that each one gets to be in charge of the theme of the challenge and for this one is was my turn so you get the tutorial to go with the card and I hope you enjoy it.

I have chosen to make a tent card, it's not too hard to master and the aperture in the front is perfect for "swinging" item and that fits great with "fluttering" part of the theme!

Card Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal Eighths Board
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Paper and Sentiment - Natural Luxury by Craft Smith
Square Dies - Little B's
Heart Punch - Martha Stewart
Brads and Picture Hanger - Craft Store

Cut two pieces of patterned paper 6" by 12" and 6" by 4"

Score the larger piece at 6" along the 12" and score the smaller piece at 1", 2" and 3" along the 4" side. Fold the card base in 2 and the smaller piece in a "hill and valley" fold as shown in the photo. Burnish all score lines.

Chose a die to cut the aperture on the front of your card to fit your sentiment or embellishment that you wish to hang. If you do not wish to use a die for this you can cut the hole with an exacto knife and a ruler.

Position the die on the card front (card open so as only to cut the hole in the front) and run through the die cut machine.

The die I chose came as a set so I used the original die along with 2 others to cut a frame to go around the edge of the aperture.

Decorate the card as you desired before adding the base. If you choose a double sided cardstock the inside will already be decorated for you. I added a message mat to the inside, you could add it to the back of the card if you prefer. Attach your sentiment or embellishment so it can dangle in the front space, I used two picture hangers but you could use wire, twine, ribbon, chain, whatever you have on hand that goes with the theme of your card.

Add Scor-Tape to the base as shown in the photo.

Attach to the inner sides of the card with the "mountain" fold in the center going upwards so that the card will fold closed flat.

Add any additional embellishments to the card to complete it.

I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial and that you will give a tent card a try, they are easy to make, fold flat into an envelope and are a fun twist on a regular fold.
And remember to share you "Hearts A Flutter" creation at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and you could be our winner!
