Cards with the Fringe and Score Board

Hello, Shellye McDaniel here with you today!  I have a set of cards that I’ve made with the handy DIY Party Fringe & Score Board and the Honey I’m Home Collection. The Fringe and Score Board is great for making fringe, lanterns, tassels, and rosettes, but take a look at how I used it to add some texture and dimension to my cards!

For the first card I’ve created a ‘quilted’ looking background:

I started by placing a 3.75”X 5” piece of patterned paper onto the Fringe & Score Board. I set the “score” component so that it would score at a ½”.

After completely scoring the paper vertically, the paper was turned and then scored horizontally as well.

Next I used the Brad Setter & Piercing Tool to pierce a hole at each line intersection.  I threaded a standard needle with white thread and then stitched a straight stitched  through the holes, connecting them in a diagonal pattern.

For the embellishments, I added a couple of wood veneers, chipboard die cuts and puffy stickers.

This next card will use both the scoring and fringe components of the system.

The 3.75”X5” paper was scored first horizontally at the ½” mark and then turned vertically and cut with the fringe tool at each ½” mark.

The areas were then folded in an accordion fashion, alternating each line from up-down-up to down-up-down.  A small dab of adhesive was added to the back where each of the folds went down and then adhered to the base paper.

On both cards I allowed the two techniques to really be the focal point and not hidden behind too many embellishments.  These also make lovely backgrounds for plain notecards or try them on scrapbook layouts!
