Embossing Lines

Hi guys. I love including embossed backgrounds on my cards. Of  course, that usually means embossing some cardstock with my Cuttlebug, but recently I've discovered the Score Pal. It's a very handy tool to have when creating projects with lots of exact folding...(helps get those those folds perfect every time)...but you can also use the ScorePal to create your own embossed backgrounds. (get a little more hands-on)

So today I want to show a card I made using an embossed background made with my ScorePal.  It's really not that complicated -- just lines...but it's different from the regular Cuttlebug embossing folders, so that makes it different. :)

Starting off with my embossed background, I layered some patterned paper on top. I wanted a bit more definition between the two papers, so I added a punched border on the bottom. Using my Cuttlebug, I cut a beautiful Creatable...and stamped on my sentiment. I added foam dots to the give it a bit of dimension. Then I stamped a flower stamp I borrowed from a friend...and cut it out. Finally I added some punched leaves...and the pink pearls. :)

I must say -- it turned out so pretty. I'm definitely loving the color combination. :) How about you?


  1. Your card is so beautiful. I love your scored lines to create texture and the beautiful extras you have included. Not so CAS though, for our challenge this week. I do hope you will join us again soon! Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM xx

  2. This is great. I love the fact that although you have a handy machine to emboss things for you, that you have taken it into your own hands (if you get what i mean;p) and manually done your embossing. It looks very effective too and a great idea as you can pretty much put the lines how and where you want for whatever effect you want x
