Scor-pal and DCWV Project

Hello!  Today I have a project highlighting the lovely papers by DCWV.
I've created a bag and a card combination to celebrate fall, using Scor-pal products that make it so simple to make the stunning!
Fall Leaves 

To create the bag, I started a sturdy kraft cardstock.  Score at the following marks, using your Scor-pal scoring board:

The small corner in the template above that is shaded should be removed with precision scissors.  Cut along the 1.5" scores to create the bottom of the bag.  Fold along the scored lines.  I also used Scor-Tape to ensure my bag stays together.  Add Scor-Tape to the small fold (1") edge and adhere to the opposite side to close the bag.  I just can't say enough about Scor-Tape... there's just nothing better!  Your project will not fall apart.

Using a the lovely textured cardstock from the Autumn Melody cardstock stack, I die cut leaves into the brown cardstock.  I also used a pretty patterned paper from the Autumn Melody Stack behind the die cut cardstock to give the leaves some dimension and interest.

The die cut panel was adhered to the bag with dimensional tap, after I tied on a simple bow of twine.

I added a braided handle of twine to the bag, through two holes punched into the sides approximately 0.5" from the edge.

To complement the bag, I created a gate fold card to match.  To be honest, it's so simple to create a gate fold card using a Scor-pal because the scoring marks are noted on the board.  Start with a 8.5" x 11" piece of kraft cardstock.  Score at 2.25" and 7.75".  I used the same beautiful Autumn Melody Stack papers - and trimmed one of the images to use as my focal point of the card.  I inked the edges a bit for added dimension.

And then... I actually finished the inside of a card.  I think if you have the elegance of the gate fold for your card style, you need a "ta-da" finish for the inside.  I used a couple of the die cut leaves, not just because I had them on hand (which I did), but also because they are beautiful.

Thank you for visiting!

  2. Lovely projects Lise! I rarely think to do anything inside the card and you're right - those leaves are perfect for a "ta da!" inside the gatefold!

  3. Oh these turned out so pretty. I really like the leaves and beautiful Fall colors.
