JustRite Friday Challenge 046: Technique - Scoring!

The first JustRite Friday Challenge for 2011 is sponsored by Scor-Pal and is to use scoring on your card (other than for the card's fold)! Using a 1" strip cut from an old book page, I scored every 1/4" and then secured the ends of my long strip, forming a circular BG embellishment for my sentiment from JustRite's Romantic Sentiments. I then die-cut my SB's Inverted Circle from my striped CS and added scoring between the black lines for more accent, plus a narrow scored book-page strip along the bottom edge. Unfortunately, I don't own the Scor-Pal, because it would have been much faster/easier to score the book page strips without having to move them to score every 1/4"!
Paper: DCWV Striped Black and Cream CS (All Dressed Up stack); black, cream CS (from stash); old book page
Stamps: JustRite Romantic Sentiments Set
Ink: Memento's Tuxedo Black; Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Ink
Embellishments: Martha Stewart Ribbon; A'Muse Twinkle Stickers
Tools: Spellbinders' Wizard and Inverted Circle Die; Copic R35 (to color clear heart gem)
