Simply Scored--Just the Right Touch

Have you ever made a card and just sat there thinking, "This needs something, but I don't know what."  Pull out your Simply Scored for just the right touch to add that "something" your card needs to make it complete.
Here is a card I made recently using a must have stamp set, "Lovely as a Tree".  We all have made similar cards. A basic area in the middle for the focal image and a bunch of space around it to fill in with something.  While we have many options, Designer Series Paper or background stamp, just to name a couple, they are not what we are looking for.  I wanted to keep the focus on the tree area in this card.  A few simple scores on the Simply Scored tool and it gave this card, just the right touch.

Stampin' Up! has also come out with a Diagonal Score Plate to make your Simply Scored even more useful. More on that another time.  The tree is stamped in Early Espresso and then colored in with Blender Pens.  I used swirling motions of Gumball Green, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake.
