Scor Pal & American Crafts Blog Hop!


Hey everyone! Welcome to the Scor-Pal and American Crafts Blog Hop! The design team was challenged to use the Scor-Pal tool to create a project, layout, or card. I created this greeting card using the new "Gardenia" and "Fresh Squeezed" lines.

I used the Scor-Pal tool to score a square pattern across the blue part of card. I also used to create a smaller square pattern on the brown cardstock at the bottom of my card. To make the scoring stand out a little better, I lightly sanded my card stock after I scored the lines across it.


SUPPLIES: Robin's Egg (71138) Card Stock, Chestnut (71123) Card Stock, White (71081) Card Stock, Border Punches (63013) Knock Outs, Plum Schmear (35665) Fresh Squeezed, Fennel (77264) Gardenia, Thyme (42231) Gardenia, Thank you Stamp (59155) Gardenia, Apricot (27136) Zing, Kraft (71464) Card Stock, This to that (61710) Foam Tabs - American Crafts; Scor-Pal; Versarmark Ink; White Thread.

Make sure to enter a comment below for a chance to win the prize package on the American Crafts blog!!

 I will also choose a winner from the comments on this post to win this pack of Dear Lizzy Rub-ons.

The next person on the hop is the fabulous Paige Evans!! Check out her project and leave her some love!

EDITED:  COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED. A WINNER WILL BE POSTED TODAY, Friday, March 23d.
