In keeping with the theme of how to use scraps in card making, this is a super simple design that you could easily make lots of. I had one long strip of Designer Series Paper & I wanted to make a little set of cards to give as a gift. Two of the Basic White bases measure 21 x 10.5cm. The smaller one measures 17 x 8.5cm.

Make sure you stamp your sentiment before you work out where to stick the DSP! Otherwise you'll run out of room to do the embossing. Stick the DSP in place. You need to do this step BEFORE you emboss!

I used my Simply Scored tool for the embossing. It comes in inches, so be sure to order the metric plate if you prefer to work in centimetres. It's worth having both, especially if you like making 3D items and scrapbook pages as well as cards.

To make sure you can line up the score lines with your paper, you should work on the right side of your card stock. This will mean the initial lines are debossed on the front of the card, but once you've made them, you can turn the card stock over to the back side and go over the score lines you've already done, which will give you the embossed look on the front of the card!

I also like this look as an embellishment on masculine cards, because while it adds a nice detail, it's not "pretty".

Have a go & let me know!
