I have one of their original scoring boards and envelope makers. I have used them and I love them, but honestly, I found that it's just easier and to create my own cards using plain cards & envelopes that can be purchased together.

I have this one and never use it! I think I have maybe used it twice when I first got it!

Yes, I have it. I bought it after using it at a convention. I paid a lot for it. It is useful but I don't like embossing by hand so the embossing plates are useless to me. I prefer my Cuttlebug for that. If you do not have any other tools, you wold enjoy it. If you already own some other machines, I don't think you would use it a lot. The plus to it is that you can take it anywhere and don't need any electricity or batteries. You can PM me if you want more info.

I have never made a card before. I thought it would be nice so I would not have to worry about envelope or card sizes I would hate to measure, measure, measure.

measuring and making card bases is probably the easiest part,,,,,

an A2 card is just an 8.5x11 piece of paper cut in half,,,,,,,then folded,,,,

5x7 is a 10x7 piece of paper folded in half,,,,,,,

6x6 is a 12x12 piece of paper cut in half and then folded,,,,,,piece of cake.

I meant scoring it and making the matching envelopes.

I have it and used it at first ... but honestly, I like my MS scoring board MUCH better ... you can score every 1/8th of an inch and the scoring is much crisper than in the CC

Yes. There is a little envelope maker thingy that stores in the back of it. Works great!

I have the Crafter's companion and probably used it only once or twice.

I really prefer the Stampin Up Score board. It has inserts for scoring on the diagonal and a new plate now for scoring different designs on papers.

This score board has markings every 1/4" and the ridges are deep so make great scores for cards or as embellishments on scrap book pages, etc.

Every time I sit down to craft, I find myself using this tool.

Martha Stewart actually makes two sizes of the scoreboard - I have the smaller one, and it has some templates on the backside for making envelopes.
