December 2015 – Using Score Lines On Your Card

As I said last month, I was going to make the November and December Technique Challenges easy since these are the busy times. I thought for this month we can learn to use score lines on our cards. I don’t mean the score lines to fold the card in half or the score lines to fold the card in intricate folds. I mean the score lines just for decoration.

I’m sure you’ve seen others do some scoring on their cards. It definitely adds a little something extra.

I’ve gathered some videos and ideas for you to watch to learn different kinds of scoring that you can do. I hope it inspires you to give some of them a try or to come up with something unique to you.
