Wow – a Tutorial!

Imgp1304 - smallerI got a few emails about the scoring on the card that I posted yesterday, so I thought I would try doing a tutorial.  If I do another tutorial, I will spend a little more time on it.  And maybe get a manicure and put some lotion on my hands!  But for today, here it is!

The scored and embossed cardstock is Certainly Celery and the matting cardstock is Bermuda Bay.  I embossed the bottom layer with a Sizzix folder.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink’s Birthday Basics and I stamped it with Bermuda Bay.  The butterflies (punched with a Martha Stewart punch) are mounted on Pop Dot pieces, and I added pearls for the bodies.

I’d appreciate any comments you might choose to leave!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Eager to try the tutorial - love the look and I was going to ask you how you did it. Thanks.
No need for a manicure - your hands look fine:-)

Lynette,
Thank you SO MUCH for making your tutorial. It was GREAT! And I DID want to know how to do the radiating design using the Scor-Pal! (I was just embarrassed to ask!) The design is so very striking as the backdrop. I know I will use it alot now that I know how to do it.

Thanks, again, for making your first tutorial! I'll be looking for more of them from you in the future! ;-)

Hugs,
Suzie

You're a movie star! Or at least your hands and voice are :-) Cool!

I forgot to pull rhubarb for you yesterday. Sorry :-( We both know how great my memory is.

You just keep impressing us with all your talents. Now you've done a tutorial and taken a new step. It turned out great and there isn't a thing wrong with your manicure or hands!!! (Only four more weeks and some of us will get to see you in person!!!)

Great cards and great job on the tutorial! Love that affect - I'll have to try it! I'm embarrassed to say I pretty much just use my ScorPal to score my cards in half!

I figured out how to do it, but would never have come up with the idea myself. I'm not good at "original ideas!" Thank you for sharing yours!
