It's one of those "Duh" moments.....

I seen a really cool card at Rita's site recently and had a moment when I thought, "Now why didn't I think of that!"  Ever have one?  I have them TOO often!!  When you live in an area where there are a LOT of  "snowbirds" it's called a senior moment. But after seeing Rita's card I just had to try it! The background is created with the Scor-Pal and a sanding block.


This adorable raccoon is from the new set called Give Praise to Him.  I scored on Core'dinations cardstock then sanded.  And the Just a Note is from the Trendy Greetings set.  I stamped the images with Burnt Umber PH ink.


Here's a close up of the scoring and the coon. I used my Giga Scallop Square punch for the black frame behind the coon.  The scallop border is made with the Treading Waters Fiskars border punch. 

So, are you enjoying your sneak peeks?? Are you getting excited to get your hands on the new catalog??  Don't forget to reserve your copy!!!

WOW - what a great card and love the scor-pal work - okay off to check out Ritas site.

Great cards and love the masculine look to it .... thanks also so giving my site a shout out. But I have to admit that my background was not done with the Scor-pal. It is paper that already has the score lines on it .... but yours looks just like it! Great job!

I do love this way of doing the background. I have done backgrounds witht the scor-pal, but not 'random'. Great job!
