Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop.

Technique Tuesday Blog

It is Technique Tuesday and we are a bunch of Demonstrators from around the world that love to share different Techniques with you.  This month, we are sharing techniques showing Scoring Techniques..  Wow, this should be exciting!  There are so many  techniques that I wanted to share.  Perhaps that will be another blog Post or two!!!.  Today, I decided to show off s the Scoring Board and the Beautiful Blackberry Suite.  I have done this technique a few times.  It is called the Pleated Card or Drapery Card Technique. The Beautiful Blackberry DSP shows this technique off in a very elegant way.

This technique can be modified in so many different ways to get different looks and can be adapted for a landscape card as well.  I had decided to use the portrait  style card as shown below.  i will make sure to include a supply list below.
