You may find there’s some trial and error for you with cardstock. I found the scores to be a little inconsistent from sheet to sheet. I’m not sure if that’s because of the natural variation in stock, or my own settings. Additionally, very small pieces and folding surfaces required double pass scores so the paper wouldn’t buckle/split as much. It’s a fine line between not enough and too much, getting a clean slice vs scorching the paper’s finish.
I found I had the best consistency placing the stock dead center on the bed, and pinning the corners down.
The stock I used is 105 lb cover Stardream Metallic - Copper
material thickness approximation: .009”
For score, I used
Precision Power: 12
Number of passes: 2
For cuts, I used
Precision Power: 70
Number of passes: 1
It was also trial and error with glues. I ended up preferring the consistency and hold of Elmer’s carpenter’s wood glue. Didn’t make the paper soggy and holds like iron.
I’m still tweaking these settings, so I appreciate any input you can offer once you start on your own project. It’s all so new to me. Any tips and ideas are very welcome.
