Hello, and I wish you a fun, crafty day!

Yesterday, the Pals showcased their monthly Blog Hop. We had a fun, Fall Color Challenge! I created the card above and focused on a color Design Tip and custom embossing a layer with a scoring tool.

As promised, you can click the button below to download and print the PDF tutorial. The tutorial includes pictures and full instructions for this card, and the scoring technique.

Today’s Card Parts And Pieces

  • I cut a Very Vanilla top fold card base at 11″ x 4 1/4″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • The textured Crumb Cake layer is die cut using one of the Deckled Rectangle Dies. The layer measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.
  • I die cut both the Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow layers using a Deckled Rectangle Die. They measure about 2 5/8″ x 3 7/8″.
  • I stamped the die cut images with Mango Melody and Mossy Meadow ink.
  • The sprig elements are die cuts using Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Mango Melody cardstock.
  • I used a Blending Brush to add some ink to the Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow DSP layers.
  • The small strips of cardstock are 1/4″ wide. I used them for the inside of the card.

So, download the Tutorial for this card, cut some layers, add a little embellishment and give this scoring technique a try.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
