Season's Tweetings


Hi everyone.  Back with another card for the LOVEFEST2014 Challenges at SCS - Challenge G - add scoring - hosted by Scor-Pal.  I use my Scor-Pal for every card I make for the fold of the card base ... but today I added some extra scoring to frame these sweet images from Lawn Fawn.  Aren't they cute??!! :)  They bring a smile to my face.  I colored them with Copics for a simple, flat card (easy for mailing!).  All the images (including the sentiment) are from the one stamp set - love it!  I added a little detailing with my white gel pen and just the tiniest bit of sparkle on the middle bird's pompom. :)

I'm also adding this card in four other challenges (count 'em ... four!!).  This will be my second entry to the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More - #83 - holiday.  As well, I'm entering it into Sparkle's Creations Christmas Challenge #13 - Anything Goes, Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #165 - add a sentiment, and to the current challenge at CAS(E) this sketch! #65 - sketch by Sam Simpson.





Here's how I made the scored frame, but there may be an easier way as it's not something that I have done very much.  I turned the card to the back side and placed it in my cutter (just for measuring).  I placed it at the 3/4 " mark and then took my pencil and drew along the guide (where it would have cut if I was using a cutter).  I did that for all four sides to create a rectangle on the back of the card.  Then I place it on my Scor-Pal and scored along the pencil lines.  When I flipped it over, I had this nice rectangular, scored frame. :)
