Adding Texture to Cards with Scor-Pal

I love the detail that a little texture can to any project. I decided to use my Scor-Buddy to add some finishing touches to a couple of cards. I chose to fussy cut the butterflies from the Field Notes collection as a starting point, for both of the cards.





I found that the scoring on the card with the kraft background didn't show up as nicely as I wanted. I swiped some watermark ink over the surface of the card, to help highlight the raised areas and I was much happier with how it looked!





The second card I created, needed the space framed down around the journaling card from the Promise Me collection. The scoring showed up nicely on the white background and I added bits of turquoise to tie the look of the card together.

I hope I've inspired you to create today! Thanks for visiting!

The extra texture makes a huge difference with these cards. What a great way to change it up without having to pull out embossing folders and machines.

Scor-Pal rocks! I have one of the very first versions, which I use every time I papercraft; however, I'd love to win a state-of-the-art Scor-Pal with all the new guides. There are so many ways to use this amazing tool....

What a beautiful card! I will certainly give it a try using the scoring technique. Mother's Day is coming up and although my mom has passed away, I do have two 'motherly'
figures in my life since and Iam sure they would love a card for Mother's Day. TFS
