Adding Scoring Details + GIVEAWAY

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…

For my first card I added a grid pattern to my white background using a Teflon Bone Folder and Scor-Pal Mini Scor-Buddy Scoring Board. My lines are 1/4″ apart and it was quick to make!

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!

I like that the Concord & 9th Sunshine Turnabout Stamp Set includes sentiments… and works great with the Concord & 9th Hooray Ribbon Dies set. (That is where I got the center die cuts.) Swoon!

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.

    The Concord and 9 th stamps & dies look amazing- and the cards you made are great.
    I can see that would make great wearable rosettes in school colours for sports festivals for the grandchildren.
    A new and innovative take on the old style ribbon rosettes.Maybe try felt too?
    I am in Australia, but expect these rosettes are worn by kids in US too!
    Am addicted to your blog and videos Jennifer- am going to go broke soon as want to purchase everything you demonstrate! And the dollar exchange and postage are killers here for us down under.
    I try and perfect a card or idea and share with group of friends who meet monthly for cardmaking evenings.
    This month- they loved the envelope corner bookmarks and my version of the card using the Mama Elephant die grid and stamp.
    I watch the videos in bed at night- and my husband knows your voice!
    Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much for all your inspiration. I adore your videos, your techniques, your easy explanations and your voice. This scoring tutorial is wonderful. Something I never remember to do.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
