Scor-pal Last Days of Summer Blog Hop



Summer is drawing to a close and what better way to celebrate Summer than by showcasing summer projects. Check out today's posting at Scor-pal to get all the details of today's hop.

I created this card using an assortment of products, showcasing how amazing the Scor-pal is. Since my card was a little plain around the edges, the Scor-pal added just the right amount of definition.



I cut my striped pattern paper into a block, then scored around the block twice 1/4" apart. A light swipe of white ink helps the score lines show up. Reversing my striped paper, I used the words to create the focal element which I backed with cardstock. I then wrapped Twine around it before adhering it to my card.

Summer was stamped in black ink, embossed and mounted on cardstock before adhering it to the card with foam adhesives. The circular image was stamped on which cardstock, colored with Copic Markers and added to the card with a paper tagger.


Enjoy.
