Day #37 - DIY......... AND SCOR-IT WEEK

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is to dress up some chipboard. I took some "raw" chipboard, painted it brown and added some pearls. The monogrammed "M" is also chipboard, but it was purchased already designed. I cut the marquee using my Storybook cartridge from Provo Craft and used a piercing tool to add a little design. I also ran some cardstock thru the Cuttlebug and embossed it using the Leafy Branch folder, then inked it up a little. The patterned paper is Martha Stewart.


Also at 365 Cards starting this Sunday, instead of a sketch, we will kick off the week with a scoring challenge, and each day the Design Team will bring us their take on a challenge, along with a tutorial on their blogs. They will also be blogging about the very popular Scor-it Board and Scor-it Mini. Don't worry, though, you don't need anything other than a simple scoring tool (a bone folder or stylus will do) to participate. Check out 365 Cards and learn how YOU CAN WIN A PRIZE DURING SCOR-IT WEEK!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Very classy - I like that there are so many techniques, but it doesn't look like it was just blobbed together.
