365 Cards Score-It Challenge: Score Lines

Wow! I woke up this morning completely SHOCKED that it is Friday. I have no idea what I have been doing all week... well beside card making ; )

Today is a fun challenge and is something I love to do. Use score lines to dress up a card. You can use it anywhere and it adds so much interest. Here is my challenge card for the day:

I did diagonal lines in sets of three and then I did two sets vertically on the left side (a bit hard to see).  I think if you click on the photo it should enlarge. My mother told me that the last time I said that it enlarged SO big she could only see a corner of it! I have changed the measurements of this one so hopefully we won't have that problem. Which is kind of funny, but I am sure obnoxious if you actually want to see the card. Sorry MOM!!  Let me know if it doesn't work!

Also, wanted to point out that trim with the zig zag edges is actually chipboard. I have a bunch of these at 12 inches and they are so fun to play with!! I just stamped polka dots on it and inked the edges. Then I wrapped it with some thread. And added some stickles to the center of the flowers.

And that's it folks! I am working on some submission cards and hope to get busy on next weeks stuff. So check back tomorrow and also sunday for the 365 Sketch Challenge. Next week should be fun. I hope to do an entire week of gifts and projects... but we will see how the weekend goes!!

Great card and going diagonal really adds interest. I am also loving that chipboard.

Love this card. I really like your score lines. That unexpected row on the one end is great. Also love the floss around the border.

Very neat card Kristie. I bet it was challenging to do the diagonal lines. I wanted to come up with something unique like this but it just wasn't in the cards today.

Sandy said...

I love the different take you took on scoring kristie!! something I haven't seen!

This card was pretty on its own but the unique pattern of the scoring took it beyond. Really really cool.
