One of my favorite Trendsetters is former Trendie, Silke Ledlow. I love her CAS style and because I really haven't decided on a style I tend to like to do it all...I really wanted to know how she got her score lines to show up so crisp and neat. I had a conversation with her and she shared that she used an embossing stylus versus the bone folder that comes with the Scor-Pal.
Here are the supplies you need:
A Scor-Pal and an embossing stylus.
The beauty behind the Scor-Pal are the measurements. One thing I learned from trial and error is they type of paper needed. I found that SU smooth card stock. Heavy card stock tends to crack and unless you plan on a vintage look - it doesn't look very pretty.
Once you decide upon the distance you want, I push gently on the paper and viola - gorgeous score lines.
For my card today I needed a classic Thank you card. Somehow I got "tuxedo" in my head and that's what I think this looks like. I used two TSG sets ~ Act of Kindness and Nature of Friendship.
Don't those score lines add a gorgeous element? I hope you'll give it a try.
