Simply Scored love!

Meet the new love in my life- Stampin'Up!'s Simply Scored.  It is so much fun to use, and so much easier than the one I already have.  Truthfully, this one doesn't even belong to me.  It is my friend Diane's and she let me try it out before I release it to her.  The groves are just the right size, the stylus has two ends so you can make large or small scores, and the markers keep you from having to mark up your ruler so you can remember where to score.  I highly recommend this to you crafters. 

 So I must show you the card we will make in the workshop this week that I made using the Simply Scored.  I was inspired by a card made by Jill Coleman at  She gave instructions on how to do the accordion fold which I changed up a little to fit my card idea. 
You need a piece of card stock 5 1/2 by 11".  Place paper on the scoring tool long ways and score at 1 1/2" and 5 1/2".  Flip the paper like a pancake then score at 3" and 8".  Fold and flatten with your bone folder.  Then you are ready to decorate.  Now those measurements will give you a skinny card, so I added mine to the front of a regular card so the finished card measures 5 1/2" by 4 1/4".
I used the Frightful Sight DSP with Lucky Limeade and Cajun Craze card stock.  The ghost is the Owl Builder punch using only the owls body and cutting off his legs :(  The spiders are punched out of the paper with the 1" punch then glued to the back of the fold where the ghost are. I also used waffle paper on the back of the front fold to give the ghost a little something to peek around.  The only other thing is the words on the paper from several Halloweens ago.  They are perfect hidden in the fold behind the spiders.
There is a long list of supplies, so leave a comment if you are curious about something used here.
Thanks for looking.
