365 Cards - Scor-It week - Day 48 - Score a Pattern

Day 48 on 365 cards and only 1 more day of Scor-It week left, I have to say this has been my favourite week so far on this blog, I love making anything a bit different.

Anyway on to today's challenge which is to make a card making your pattern by means of scoring. I knew which stamp I was going to use, I got it free on a magazine years ago and have only used it once or twice, these challenges have certainly reminded me of things I have stashed away and had little or no use so its nice they have been brought out for an airing.

I measured my stamp which is 2" square, I took a 5" x 5" white card base and cut a square in the centre of the card the same size as my stamp.

I cut a square of SU card slightly smaller than my card base and embossed a 1/2" border all round the outside, I then went diagonally across the card to mimic garden trellis. I snipped off the corners with my circle punch and cut the square in the centre slightly larger than 2"so when it was mounted the white would show through. It has made this looki like a window.

I tied a length of ribbon around the bottom of the Lemon card before mounting it on 3D pads, a small pearl gem in each corner was added to give a little interest.

Another view of my scoring.

Hope you like it

P.S. I have a small problem, I need another card box as mine is full to the top in fact I have had to take some cards out of it so they dont get damaged, maybe thats my next little project!
