MFT and Scor-Pal Hop

LinkWelcome to the Scor-Pal and My Favorite Things hop! I hope you are ready for a ton of inspiration! You can find the entire list of designers that are participating, along with the prize details, on the Scor-Pal Blog.




For my project, I decided to change the tea-light card holder up a little bit, to make it the perfect way to present some Kisses for Valentine's Day. So here's a peak at the inside of my project.





To begin, cut a cardstock base 10 1/4" x 8"(I used WorldWin Papers - Kraft). With the long side placed on the upper fence of the Scor-Pal, score at 1/2", 1 1/4", 2 3/4", 3 1/2", 5", 9 1/2"

Next turn the paper a quarter turn, so that the short side is now along the upper fence. Score at 3/4" and 7 1/4"

Trim as shown below.

Cut a window on the third panel in, leaving a quarter of an inch margin around the edges. Use Scor-tape around the opening, and attach a piece of clear acrylic for the window.

Fold the box portion of the card inwards, and use Scor-Tape on the outer flap to anchor the box to the card base. **I added patterned paper, and my candy kisses to the inside of the box before closing the box up.

For the front of the card, cut a base of 6 3/4" x 6 1/2 ". With the longer side at the top of the Scor-Pal, score at 3/4". Put Score-tape on the under side of the tab, and attach to the base of the card. Decorate the front and inside as you wish.

For my project, I used MFT's Ladybug from the Pure Innocence line (which I completely love every stamp in this collection!). I colored her with Copics, but she was a little too bright for the vintage look I wanted, so I swiped the entire image with Tea Dye Distress ink. I love how this looked with the Kraft paper. MFTs also has a wonderful line of dies - the Die-Namics! I used the Dizzy Border. Look how delicate those cuts are! Just fabulous!
