For heavy paper I've used a scoring stylus: http://www.stampinup.com...ls.aspx?productID=125624

If you have a straight cutter you can usually insert this in the space where the blade goes to make your score lines, or use on a score board.

I am using a bone folder with going thru a cutter board, using the folder instead of cutting.
The photo paper is really, really heavy....
I also tried Martha S. scoring board, no luck either.
Also have a cutter that has a scoring blade....didn't work that great either...
Like I said the paper is really heavy. It is Epson Ultra Luster Premium Photo Paper.
I guess I am going have to find different kind of photo paper that isn't so heavy in order to make my cards with...
Thanks to all of you for your helpful ideas, it really does help!
Have a great Thanksgiving to all :)

I have found the Creative Memories Rotary Cutter with the scoring blade to work best for me. BigGrin It also is ruled to be sure you score your project evenly.
