Hi Jessica! I just watched all of the videos! You are really a very good teacher. I loved the tip on cutting the design paper from the right side with the gatefold card~! I hate when the design doesn’t line up! Thank you for sending out these great reminders!

You’re welcome, Alyse, I hope you enjoy using the card sketches!
Hi Jessica, Thank you for all the tutorials. Question, when folding your card base does the score line indent fold inward or do you flip it over and fold inward.
I’ve always folded it so the bump from scoring is on the inside of the card. Not sure if that’s the “right” way, but it works for me!
