Default Scoring tool with curvy lines?

I am curious to know if there is such a tool as a curvy line scoring tool, has anyone seen or heard of such a thing? I did a google search and it points me to a french curve tool, but that is not what I am looking for. What do you do to get curved score lines on a card?

I believe Crafters' Companion makes something to make curved score lines. You might want to google it to see if anything comes up. You could also use the shape you want to score and use a stylus to "trace" the shape onto your cardstock. Just put the cardstock on something that has a little give like a pad of paper or magazine.

Even a mouse pad or piercing mat works well. I've sometimes used old Fiskars cutting and stencil templates, or even just free-handed it! I find an embossing stylus a bit easier for this type of thing than a regular scoring tool.

There is also a Fiskars crimping tool that makes wavy lines.

If you are wanting to do multiples you may want to make a template with some chipboard (cereal packaging etc) as a guide. And I second an embossing stylus for the work.

Have you tried using a flexible ruler to draw your line? They are not very expensive and can youn find them with drafting tools. You can bend the ruler into various sizes and series of curves.

I have several rulers for tearing and one of them is a wide curve. Not a small curve but still I think if you used a stylus on something softer maybe even a mouse pad, it may emboss pretty nicely. Think I'm going to try it myself later.
Good Luck!

Thank you all so much for the wonderful ideas!!! Using a stylus does seem to be the most sensible tool choice, and why couldn't I have thought of some of these? That is what I love about being a SCS member, all of you clever and talented people here.

I am going to try using a stencil I have that has some wavy edges. A flexible ruler sounds fascinating, will have to check those out as well. Crafter's Companion looks like they may have something similar to what I was thinking, thank you so much for that lead, cat_woman!

Default update

For anyone who had an interest in this thread, I just found by happenstance a stencil kit by Fiskars made for use with their ShapeBoss. I don't have the ShapeBoss, but I bought the stencil kit at my local Final Markdown store today, and it only cost $1.49! So, if it doesn't work out to my satisfaction, no big loss. The kit came with 3 different vinyl shape sheets, one of which has the curvy and zigzag lines I am interested in. One thing I like about it is that it has a matching top and bottom sheet to hold the card-stock between while scoring.

I have a couple of children's rulers that have wavy and scalloped edges. One edge is just a regular 12" ruler. The other side has a pattern.

Oh yes, lots of cutting tools now come with different blades that cut in wavy lines, or other decorative lines. They cost a little more, but I like them.

Real subtle, you are.
Spring mini starts the beginning of January.

Sign up as a demo, and you can order the beginning of December. And see the spring mini tomorrow.

I heard about the score plate and that's why the "sneak preview".

Now I have SEEN it and you are DEFINITELY going to love it!

For that matter, you're going to love the spring catalog!

Sign up as a demo! And you can see it now online!

It'll be worth it.
Have I ever lied to you?

The new spring catalog is WOW!!! Found quite a bit I'm going to have to get once customers can order. My favorites have got to be the Hearts a Flutter stamp set & the 7/8" scallop punch. I love the tiny punches.

there are a couple that i know of but not sure if htey are available in the US - you might have to buy them over here in the UK.

there is the xcut scoring board that has wavy lines on it that enable you to make pillow boxes.

there is also the crafter's companion ultimate pro board that has a vairety of decorative score lines on it.

OK!!!!! I'm READY to see the Spring SU Mini now ladies!!!!!!!!! You've got me interested!!!!!!!!!
I too wanted a curvy line to emboss on my Paper Tea Cups! Here's what I did: I used a block of wood, draw the panel on which you want the curve. (I only needed a small space & if I had to many at once it would go CROOKED...) After drawing the curvy line on this panel, I took a wood burner & burned the curvy line. Trying to keep the edges smooth. Then, lay your paper over what you've done & use you stylus to press the curve into the paper. ( The burned area doesn't have to be very deep!) That's how I got a curvy design on my Tea Cup here: TLady Designs: It's ALMOST "TEA TIME!" (Just scroll up to see the Tea Cup!)

OK, let me just say that after a quick look at your blog ... you might want to sign up as a demo. It could be the only way you can afford what you will *need* out of the Spring Mini.
(and then you could see it too!)

You could cut a cardboard template similarly. Cut a base piece of stiff board. Then cut two pieces that, when placed 1/16" apart and glued in place, make a channel you could use to emboss. It would be like those DIY embossing folders.

That's only if you want multiples though. I think for just one I'd use my embossing stylus and my flower shaping/embossing mat.

Rebecca,
ACTUALLY, an embossing folder WOULDN'T work for my tea cups! ONLY if the design is not a rigid design--swirls would work but NOT lines! If you saw my template, you'd understand! THANK YOU for the suggestion though! Everyone here is SO HELPFUL!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't tried it, but I'm guessing it would also work to use the Tim Holtz embossing diffuser plates as guides for your stylus. It gives the shapes and the cutouts for a circle and two different ovals. The pieces of acrylic are pretty sturdy....
