I seem to have a problem whenr I make a card. After I cut out my cardstock and score it, you can see the white coming through the paper on top of the card. They come very close to almost tearing in half. Does anyone have this problem and a solution to this problem?
Thank you,
Terri

The only thing I can think of is maybe you're scoring to hard on the paper? Also, is your paper really thick?
I always use paper that is solid color all the way thru. This way, If I score too hard, the same color shows.
Hope this helps a little.

Hi Terri - It sounds like you are pressing too hard with the boning tool. It also helps to use the new thicker cardstock like "Coredinations". Also, when using black or other dark colors, I like to make sure the color goes all the way through the paper. Look at all 4 of the edges of the cardstock when you buy it and be sure the color goes all the through the paper. When you have a cardstock that has a white core, try folding the card carefully by hand and then use your bone tool, or a ruler to press down flat and crease it .

White core card stock will often do that. Try getting something that isn't white core and you won't have that problem.

another thing you can do - cut off the card top and distress all the edges so it looks like it is supposed to be that way. You can even add a bit of ink to the white.

I agree that the white core can be a pain, but other times I use it as an asset. Solid color core paper doesn't have that issue.

Good luck BigGrin

Yes this has happened to me and I changed the kind of card stock I was using. I use Stampin Up or some other 80lb weight for the base of my cards most of the time. Actually The Paper Company Kraft card stock at Hobby Lobby is very sturdy as well and it saves u a little $. BLessings.

I think that cardstock and paper tend to tear more when folded against the grain. Paper and cardstock bend more easily in the direction of the grain than they do against the grain. You can test a sheet before cutting it into a card by gently flexing it in each direction to see which way folds more easily to find the grain.
