Does anyone just buy the card and score their own? Obviously this is a cheaper way of feeding your hobby but does it give the same results for you?

I'm wondering what way to go or try

Hi Missy, I score my own cards. I prefer buying card in bulk and sizing and scoring my own - that way I can make the card any size (or shape) I want. It's also cheaper lol

:D

Does it take some getting use to *blush* or is it simple and give myself a shake? lol

What do you use to pre-score? I have a paper cutter that has an extra slider for scoring but it was pretty cheap so might be worth investing in somehing better...maybe!

I have a bone paper folder like this http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e288/Pagan050806/12964-group2ww-m.jpg to make the crease. Depending on the size of card, I either just fold the card over and crease with the paper folder, or make a guide with the edge of the paper folder and a metal ruler. You don't need anything expensive (I think the folders cost me 2-odd

Hi Missyme
I'm glad that you asked that question as I have always wondered about what was best as regards card. I have been givenplastic shoehorns (unwanted gifts from inside crackers) and was thinking if they could be used for the purpose of creasing too.
