I am new to cardmaking and I am having a hard time getting my cards to stand up - most of the time, they just spread out and fall flat. I have been making my cards out of half sheets on 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock, scoring them with a Cricut Scoring Blade, and then embellishing them with decorative paper. What could I be doing wrong? Could I be scoring them too much (I run the blade over the cardstock a few times)?

Edited to add: These were all top fold cards.

you may have made the front of the card too heavy with decorations. the more you put on it, the thicker the paper should be, so it isn't floppy.
