Hello! Today I show how to add simple scoring details to your card for a bit of texture and interest. I also show several fun new Concord & 9th products that you must see…
Adding details and texture with scoring is easy to do. Here are a few ways…
I added a ribbon that I created with the Concord & 9th Hooray Ribbon Dies. The “congrats” circle and the “celebrate” sentiments are from the coordinating Concord & 9th Hooray Stamp Set. These sets are incredibly versatile! Oh – I also added a bit of scoring details to the ribbons hanging down.
NOTE: Ink and cardstock colors are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this post.
I did the same scoring technique for my second card, but in a diagonal pattern. My lines are 1/2″ apart and I used the ledge in my Fiskars Trimmer With Wire Guide and a Teflon Bone Folder. (If you don’t have these tools or a scoring board, you can use a mouse pad, ruler, and a stylus or other round-tipped tool.) The results are so pretty!
I created the flower with the same Concord & 9th Hooray Ribbon Dies set. I even used the circle stitched die to create the leaves. (Watch the video for the trick I used!) Finally, I added a few Lucy’s Cards Clear Iridescent Jewels for a bit of bling. (The sentiment is from the Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness Stamp Set.)
My next card is a bit more complicated… and gives amazing pleating. However, once you try it, it will make sense! I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock. Towards the center of the cardstock piece, I scored two lines… 1″ apart. Outside of these two lines, I scored lines at 1/4″ away, then 1/2″, and repeated 3 times on both side. I then plated along the scored lines and trimmed the ends off before adding to my card.
I also created this flower with the Concord & 9th Hooray Ribbon Dies set. Be sure to check the video on how I created the layered flower…
I gotta say – I am *crazy* about this new Turnabout Stamp from Concord & 9th! I am a fan of anything sunshine-themed, so the Concord & 9th Sunshine Turnabout Stamp Set is right up my alley. After stamping the background in various yellow shade and gold glitter heat embossing, I added scored rays. This is a great way to add dimension to the fun background!
And last but not least, a super simple card! I wanted to keep this one layer, so I added texture with scoring lines on the edges. This frames the card nicely and is fast to do. Those fabulous stamps are from the Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness Stamp Set. That sentiment is fantastic!
I just did some quick coloring with my Copic Markers and then covered the unicorn with loads of Wink of Stella Clear shimmer.
These are just a few ways to add scoring details to your project. I hope you give it a try.
