It's usually not cutting or scoring causing the problem.

This may sound crazy but it’s been bothering me for a while. I hope someone can help me and yes, I think I’m an “experienced” stamper as I’ve been card making for over 15 years. Here’s my issue:

I’ve noticed that when I watch SU demonstrators cut a card base, like the ones from On Stage demo’s, they cut the size needed and then they hand fold it in half to make the base. Usually, in these demonstrations the presenter makes a point out of “you get 2 card bases from one sheet of card stock”. I’ve never really seen SU use a score board to score the card base. They mention it but don’t use it.

I like to score my card bases so I get clean folds and I teach seniors who have limited small motor skills, so pre-folding for them helps. I’ve noticed that when I have a landscape opening card base (5 ½ x 8 ½ - scored at 4 ¼) when I fold the edges don’t match EXACTLY. It drives me crazy and I trim off the overhang which is less than 1/16 inch.

When I score my bases for a portrait card (4 ½ x 11 scored at 5 ½) and fold them they match exactly.

Now I know the paper is 8 ½ x 11 so I know I’m cutting and scoring correctly but why doesn’t the landscape card match when I fold it? When I cut card bases from a 12x12 sheet, score and fold, the match perfectly. Does anyone else experience this difference? What am I doing wrong?
