more fun with the Scor-It ruler

In my recent post describing the Scor-It ruler, I tried my hand at a pattern of scores that I'd seen on the Scor-It site called Starbursts. I'd modified it a bit by making my scores a little farther apart. This time I took that same idea and modified it a little more. I made my initial scores 1/2" apart in the starburst pattern, then I turned my card stock over and repeated the scores 1/2" apart, but made them halfway between each of the original scores. Follow that? So basically I ended up with mountain and valley scores that were 1/4" apart and which look kinda neat when they're in a starburst pattern.

This is what I mean. There are scored lines every 1/4", but they alternate being debossed vs embossed. I know that wasn't a great photo, but it still showed the effect of the alternating scores rather nicely.

Here it is on a quickie card. The stamped image is by Hero Arts. The sentiment is by PSX. The die cuts were made using a Sizzlit embosslit die. All inks are Memento dye inks.

I'm having a lot of fun playing with this new Scor-It ruler. :-)
