ID: VSN Aug 2010 - Scoring  - Dragonfly to Fly
5"w  x 7"h

Created: August 14, 2010
This is another submission for the Vamp Stamp Magazine for the October 2010 issue with the theme of "Your favorite scoring tool". Mine happens to be the Scor-It board. Love it.

And in making these cards I realized it has an advantage over the ScorPal. With the ScorPal your lines are formed within a grove, whereas with the Scor-It your lines are formed on top of a stainless steel rule, so you can use it as a support if you want to sand your line down, which is something I did on this card.


I scored and folded my yellow card. Love this yellow from recollections "Spice Market" pack.

Did a direct to paper with Distress Walnut Stain, then sponged more Walnut to even out the white areas and touched it with some Aged Mahogany, misted with water and dried. Scored my lines about 9/10" apart, sanding at the same time to get to the white core. Then did them at a right angle to each other till the whole card was done.

Punched the EK Success Le Scallop Daisy (one of my newest punches) on white cardstock then trimmed off enough to be able to make a single row of daisies. (PS see punch tutorial HERE). Sponged Distress Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade & Wild Honey and clear embossed.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Vintage Sepia & touched sections with Black Onyx. Die cut it with the largest Spellbinders Labels Grande, then embossed it then sponged Distress Old paper & Antique Linen around the edges and then a touch of Wild Honey.


Adhered the quote to the Daisy border just under the protrusions. Then adhered both of these elements to the scored background. Trimmed off the excess border then adhered all of this to the main card.

Die cut the dragonfly and leaves from  Spellbinders die sets "Harvest 2 Leaves" & "Bugs" , then sponged color and embossed the large leaf vein with clear embossing powder and the dragonfly with Kaleidoscope. Adhered them to the card, and only the body of the dragonfly so the wings and tail could be raised.

as a final touch, added white half pearls at each visible intersection.
