My Favorite Things and Scor-Pal have teamed to bring you a fun blog hop showcasing products from both companies. Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for a complete list of participating designers from both companies.
If you're a regular blog reader here then you already know that I ❤ MFT, but you may not know that I also ❤ my Scor-Pal and I use it for every project I create.
Normally I use my Scor-Pal to score the fold of my card, and I use the Scor-Mat to line up all the layers when I adhere them together, but today I took it one step further and used my Scor-Pal to essentially create my own debossed patterned paper. I basically followed this Grid Technique Tutorial on Splitcoast, but instead of using a background stamp I simply inked the paper with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks. Notice how the debossed lines don't pick up the colour, therefore creating the grid look. Once my paper was just the way I wanted it I stamped the flower from Inspired by Flowers 3 with Memento Tuxedo Black.
On the kraft base layer I created a frame around the edges by scoring all four sides at 1/8" from the edge. Then I added a simple decorative strip which I cut out with the faux crochet border Die-namics and a coordinating bow.
On the inside I used the large double ended banner from the first place award ribbon die-namics for one of the sentiments from Inspired by Flowers 3, and I layered it onto two of the pieces from the sweet stack labels die-namics. For the grid paper along the bottom I did exactly the same technique as on the front of the card EXCEPT I did it on the reverse side of the card stock so the embossed lines really pick up the colour and stand out.
Here are the die-namics I used:
