PTI MIM #244: Score Lines

Laurie shared her favorite tips and tricks of adding score lines for additional detail and texture. Let me tell you, she has this technique mastered. Stop by Nichole's blog here to watch Laurie's helpful video and try the challenge yourself. She showed some other cards she made sharing a variety of ways to add score lines.

I'm sure there will be lots of great inspiration from the challenge entries so let's get on with my card.





The top white layer has been scored at a diagonal on the 1/2-inch marks in both directions with an oval die cut in the middle. This was adhered to the Bitty Dot paper with white foam so the flowers could be more free floating. I sponged Hibiscus Burst along the outer edges of the card base. Added my sentiment on a banner and finished the card using three sequins and glitter pen highlighting. Can't wait to check out what others have created tomorrow!


Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White and Bitty Dot
Ink: Hibiscus Burst, Blueberry Sky, Bright Buttercup, Orange Zest, Simply Chartreuse and Versa Fine Onyx Black
Stamps: Bitty Bouquets and Keep It Simple: Thinking of You
Dies: Bitty Bouquest, Bountiful Banners and Nestabilities Classic Oval-Large
