We Recommend: The Scor-Pal

At Creations Galore, we create a lot of cards. Which means we SCORE a lot of cards. That led us to this week's product recommendation: THE SCOR-PAL. It's the perfect tool for straight and diagonal line embossing on cards...and scrapbook pages too!

The latest version of the Scor-Pal scoring board has a slightly textured 12x12 scoring surface, with a raised fence at the top and on the left and right sides. Colored ruler marking on the fences are easy to see. This aligns your paper for perfect scoring. No more crooked cards!

Grooves are across the board at different intervals. The specialty grooves make card making simple:  at 4 1/4" for normal A2 cards; at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8" for gate fold cards and at 3.666" and 7.333" for brochure folding (divides 11" paper into equal thirds). In addition, there are grooves every 1/4" across the board. Between the  0 to 1" mark and 11" to 12" mark there are 1/8" grooves. By proper paper placement this will allow you to score 1/8 " increments such as 1 7/8".

When you place your card stock on the scoring surface, you are able to do multiple scores without moving the paper. Grid cards, accordion folds, boxes etc are scored in seconds. The score lines result in crisp, accurate folds!

The included scoring tool snaps into place at the top of the unit to ensure it is always at hand. It has been specially designed to fit the grooves so the the cardstock cannot be torn while scoring. Don't forget about the handy magnetized area next to the Scor-Tool storage area to hold metal brads or other items.
