I am featuring the stamp set Color & Contour for my card that will feature a scoring technique. I have chosen to do Simple Stamping, which is simply Stamps, Ink and Paper! I started with a Thick Basic White card base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I then scored it 1/2", 3/4", 1" and 1 1/4" on the opposite of what would be my card front so the outer indent after scoring stood out on the front of my card. I went from the bottom of the card base in my trimmer. I hope that makes sense. It just gives a nice detail to the card front as there is no layers on this card, just a simple stamping card.
I then stamped my sentiment in the bottom right of my card front in Memento Black Ink. I then added three flowers to my card, using Highland Heather and Bumblebee ink. For the inside I stamped off first before adding it. I then stamped some leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink to finish off my card front. You could always add some bling if you want or ribbon but I decided to keep this one simple for new beginners.
For the inside I stamped my sentiment in Memento Black Ink and then added the splatter stamp from the set in Highland Heather Ink across it. I like how it turned out.
I hope you enjoyed my project I shared for you today and learned a new technique for scoring. It doesn't always have to be for our card bases and fun folds. It can just add to a card front and be a simple addition. I hope you will hop all the way through our hop! The complete list is below.
