Tips for Beginners #6

I am still on the cardstock theme.  It is important when you fold your cardstock that you do so neatly and line up the front and back layers.  If you are using cardstock thicker than 200g it is a good idea to prescore the fold before folding it as you get a better finish along the spine of the card afterwards.  I use my Crafter's Companion score board and a bone folder to achieve a neat fold.  But you can also use a cutting mat, metal ruler and an embossing tool for scoring the line.  In my opinion a bone folder is an essential tool in your stamping kit.
