I started with an Island Indigo card base cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″. I cut a strip of the Tea for Two DSP and a strip of So Saffron card stock both to 5-1/4″ x 2-1/8″. Then I sponged the edges of the So Saffron card stock with Early Espresso ink. Next, I used the Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate to make the stitch design across the lower part of the So Saffron Card Stock. Then I overlapped and adhered the two strips of paper together to form a 5-1/4″ x 4″ panel. I wrapped and adhered a strip of Island Indigo Ruffle Ribbon around the center where the two sheets overlapped. Then I created the bow by looping the ribbon twice and opening a brad and squeezing the ribbon between the brad prongs (thanks Sandi MacIver for the beautiful bow idea!!) and I adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot. Then I went to work on the sentiment panel. I used the Thanks sentiment from the Vintage Verses set and I stamped it in Island Indigo ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink and I cut the sentiment out using the end of the largest Apothecary Accents Framelit. That die cut matches the new Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate, so I used that to emboss the border of the sentiment. I adhered the die cut to the card front and finished it by adding two Basic Pearls to each side of the So Saffron strip.
As you can probably tell, I’m loving the new Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate. Stampin’ Up! has put a video together to show you how to use it. It also gives you a full view of the new plate. Two tips that I can give you, make sure that you flip the card stock over so that the back side of your project is facing up before you start to emboss and make sure that you go slowly, that makes it much easier to stay in the scoring grooves. I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with mine and I hope that you’ll give it a try when it’s available too.
