Scor-pal Sympathy

What a busy time! I thought it would slow down after the fall craft fair season but life has just been stuck in high gear! Don't get me wrong - not complaining - just need to figure out how to get my blog updated more regularly. :) I was out of town all this week at a conference and ended up working all last week-end on a big project at work so couldn't pre-schedule posts. So, please forgive me and stick with me as I will figure out a plan and get back to posting more regularly. :)

So, now, on to the important stuff... The scor-pal lets you make the most wonderful background designs, especially on white-core paper. Score on the diagonal and then take an emery board or a sanding block and go over the raised part of the score lines - fabulous! I think it's the perfect background for this sympathy card and it carries a big "wow" without a lot of work. And, don't you like the accent holes created by the crop-a-dile (or you could use any hole-punch). simple but neat!
Card supplies: Scor-pal, DCVW cardstock, White ultrasmooth cardstock, Black cardstock, TAC Gerbera Daisy, Crop-a-dile

Happy Stamping!
