These two cards feature the 'Lattice' technique using the Scor-Pal. This is such a fun technique. It takes a little patience, but the results are well worth it. I don't have a tutorial to show you, but I'll explain the basics of the technique.

I put my white core cardstock textured-side down on my Scor-Pal. I scored at half an inch all the way around- giving me a 'box' to work in. Then I turned my cardstock diagonally and scored at half and inch all the way across, being sure to stay inside my 'boxed' area. Then I turned my cardstock the other direction so that I could score again to create the lattice look. All that was left was to run my sanding block over the raised lines and I was done. You can also leave it un-sanded and it looks just as beautiful.

I don't know how I ever got along without my scor-pal! Love what you've done with yours.
