Have you ordered your Borders Scoring Plate yet? The Borders Scoring Plate is found on page 26 of the current mini catalog… and adds a whole new dimension of texture to your cards and scrapbook pages!
The Borders Scoring Plate arrived at my home in a neatly packaged box…. I knew it was designed to work with the Simply Scored Board and eagerly looked forward to using it for the first time!
The Borders Scoring Plate is actually two pieces… the bottom fits snuggly into a the simply scored tool, if there’s movement then you’ve put it together wrong, LOL.
The second piece is a plastic template or guide that is placed atop the card stock when scoring. You can see just a few of the fun scoring designs in the photo below…
You can see both pieces in the photo above LOL, which I have conveniently covered with my card stock shims…. Before you get started using your Borders Scoring Plate, be sure to wax the card stock surface using waxed paper… it will make your embossing stylus glide more easily across the surface.
The card stock shims will be used to create perfectly positioned 1/2” score design elements on my card stock. My shims were cut at 1/2”, 1”, 1-1/2” and 2”…. but they just as easily could have been cut in 1/4” increments. I began by placing a 2” card stock shim against the rail of the simply scored tool, waxing the calypso coral card stock, and then place the embossing template atop both card stock and shim before embossing. Subsequently, a 1-1/2” ship replaced the 2” shim…. and scoring continued. And… then continue replacing shims with 1/2” smaller increments until you use NO shim in the simply scored board.
Nice and neat in 1/2” increments across the front of the card stock… Flipped over… the embossed card stock is ready to add to a card or scrapbook page!Have a happy day! Cosmoid the Crazy Cat says HI and we look forward to reading your comments!
