Happy Monday,

The other day while I was looking for some inspiration on Pinterest, I saw this beautiful card. The one thing that I really liked about this card was that it used the new Simply Border Template and the Simply Score Board to create a ziz zac lines down the side. Thanks for the inspiration Pinterest!!

I'm sure you are probably thinking what is a Simply Border Template ? Take the chore out of scoring! The Simply Scored Scoring Tool’s base fits paper or card stock up to 12" x 12" and features score tracks every 1/8". Features two easy-to-read rulers (with inch markings down to 1/8") along top and left side for perfect scoring. (One standard left-to-right ruler and one zero center ruler.) Includes three markers and stylus. Bottom of base has nonmarking and nonskid feet to secure it on your work area. Base measures approximately 15-1/8" x 13-1/4" x 1".

The new Simply Border Template: Awesome scored borders and patterns! 2 pieces—plate and overlay (both measure 12-1/2" x 12-1/2"). Set plate securely on our scoring tool, put card stock you want to score over plate, then add overlay over card stock as a guide for scoring. Overlay has cut groves for easy scoring!

I have to say that these are a must in every scrapbooker and stamper's room!!
