Simply Scored Background

I wanted to create a tile background so I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and scored in 1" increments.  To further accent the background I ran ink over the scored piece using my Brayer.  I like the way the ink highlighted the lines, and added color to my Whisper White cardstock.

My card base is Tangerine Tango, and is layered with a piece of Regal Rose and the Whisper White cardstock that was scored and inked with the brayer.  I stamped two flowers from the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and punched them out with the Blossom punch.  I added a 5/16" Neutral brad to the center of each flower and also added a strip of Melon Mambo 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon, along with my stamped and punched sentiment. 

So I could score at 1" increments, my layer of Whisper White cardstock was cut to measure 5" x 4".  This made it easy for me to score and I like the even lines.

The following were used:
