For this weeks Two Ways Tuesday I decided to play a bit with the Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scored Tool. I decided to use it to do a bit of dry embossing and it is amazing the different effects you can achieve! For this first card I scored on the diagonal every inch. At the intersection of each of the lines I placed a dot of Silver Dazzling Details. I heat embossed the sentiment from Loving Thoughts using silver embossing powder. The sentiment was cut into a banner and layered on top of a Brushed Silver labels die cut along with some punched hearts. A knot of organza ribbon finishes the card.
For this second card I decided to create a smaller background piece by scoring the lines much closer together. I believe I scored every 1/8" on this piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I love the textural look this gives the card. The lamb is from Storybook Friends and I paired it with some branches punched with the 2-step bird punch. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and I layered it onto a 1 1/4" scallop circle punch (I'm really loving this new punch!). Finally, I knotted a piece of Summer Starfruit stitched satin ribbon.
I hope you've enjoyed this week's Two Ways Tuesday! I hope you are inspired to try some diagonal scoring on your cards and paper craft projects!
