Slam Dunk

This is one of those layouts where the supply list is very short! I accented the cardstock that is Black Magic by Core'dinations with score lines. I wanted my design to mimic the basketball hoop.
I used a Scor-Pal tool and created scored lines in the top and bottom portion of the piece of cardstock with a criss cross pattern and then sanded those scored lines. Because this is the Black Magic cardstock, the scored lines that are sanded reveal the CORE color. I picked a core color that was orange to match my photos.

The photos are arranged with the collage program in Picasa. I love using that because I can pick out my favorite photos, Picassa arranges them and then I can add a border and pick the color of the border and once I print this out and cut it, it is ready to be added to my layout.

This close up gives you a good idea of what my score lines look like.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
