DCC at Repeat Impressions- Use Scoring on Your Card



It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. It’s my turn this time! I am challenging my team and you to create a card using scoring of some kind anywhere on your card. Did you know Repeat Impressions sells the Scor-Pal and Scor-Buddy and all the other tools you need to easily score on your cards? I have both and keep the Scor-Buddy right on my desk (it’s the perfect size to have right where you need it) and the Scor-Pal is large enough for any scoring project. Click on this link to see these great products at Repeat Impressions. And please visit the blog for all the details on this challenge and to see the other Rock Star's cards for this DCC challenge. 

For my card, I started with a white piece of cardstock that I scored diagonally every ½ inch with my Scor-Pal. I used my white pearl pen to add pearls at each intersection for an elegant look. You have to be real patient waiting for them to dry, but I love the look and am not going to put that many real pearls on a card. I stamped the beautiful sentiment from our summer release, then cut and embossed with a nesties die. The lovely butterfly was embossed with sparkly black embossing powder, then cut out and attached.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes Challenge at Paper Pretties.

Stamping smiles, Karen
