I am lucky enough to be on the staff for Scrapbook News and Review. It is an AMAZING online magazine that provides eye candy as well as articles and "how to" information. I have been there for almost two years and I have grown so much as a scrapper. SNR helped me jump out of the box and explore with mix media and digital. It has been an amazing experience and I am so honored to be part of SNR.

Creating a lattice effect on paper with your scoring toolSupplies
3x3 cardstock or patterened paper
Cut a 3x3 piece of cardstock or patterned paper then center it on your scoring pad in the 6 inch mark
Score in the of the 6 inch and then score the left and right every inch to look like this
Turn the piece and repeat step 2 so it looks like a lattice pattern
Take your favorite ink and rub against the paper - at this time you can use the debossing or the embossing side of the paper
Here is what it looks like after its been covered with ink
Now you can assemble your card and use the lattice piece as a mat or an extention of the card. Here is what I did
