Create a faux tile look and/or lovely backgrounds with your scoring tool.
- Scor-Pal™ or other scoring tool
Line your cardstock up diagonally with a score line on the Scor-Pal.
Score card stock at even intervals.
Here, the scores were made every 1/2".
Turn card stock 90 degrees, line up as before, and score at every 1/2" again to create a scored grid.
Ink the stamp and stamp on the card stock side with the indented score lines.
Here, the background was placed wood-side down with the card stock over it. To get a partly stamped image, finger walk over the paper.
Add more images and sponge card stock if wanted.
Flip it over
Instead of stamping on the cardstock side that has the indented score lines, stamp on the side that has the score lines facing up for a different look.
Add a Border
Score a small border all around the card stock before adding a grid inside the score line.
Show it off
Don't stamp over the grid at all, but use it as a background.
