Day Two ... remember to leave a message with the answer to the question at the end of today's message. Two names will be drawn on Feb 27 .... and the first one will get to select between a half price Scor-Pal or a bunch of uncut RUBBER!! You can leave a message everyday to increase your chances of winning! Today I will be showing you how to grid and sand on MatchMakers white core cards stock (CS). I will show the techniques and give you two different versions of it technique so you can get a better idea of ways to use it. The first picture shows some of the supplies I used plus one of the finished cards. The second picture I scored the white CS in half (4 1/4") and here is a TIP: Keep your paper on the Scor-Pal after you have scored it and push it again into the edge and crease it. This will make sure you have a perfect crease. Note to Andrea!!! Score a grid in a 3 1/2 x 4" MatchMakers, white core CS with the right side down! I showed how to do this on the last post. I did this one every half inch but you can do it any measure you wish.
Then I sanded the right side of the CS so the white core would show through. In the picture on the left side is not sanded so you can see the difference. I do the sides hard too! After it is sanded, I take my Crop-a-Dile and punch a hole in each of the outside squares. I tied a ribbon in the top left diagonal holes.
On the left I tied a bow and on the right one I tied a half bow for variety. Notice the pink CS behind itthe image on the right .... I was playing with the idea of putting a piece of paper behind it so the holes would show through a different color ... this one was not enough contrase ... so you will notice in the finished picture I ended up with a chartueuses green.
On the left is one card with the the white showing through the holes and to the right is the one with the green showing through.
Today's question is: which do you do more .. card making, scrap booking, mini book making, or 3D gift items????
