Scrolls and Script

Recently I splashed out on a few crafty bargains. When people on MSE (moneysavingexpert.com) have mentioned sales at craft shops my ears prick up (kind of anyway!)  I know, its not very money saving, but they are sales after all! lol

Anyway, one of the things I splashed out on was the script cuttlebug folder.  I know its not new, in fact its been out yonks, but I don't mind being a little behind the times with my crafting!

With my new cuttlebug embossing folder, I created this card:

In the middle section I've used the embossed script.  I used a rubber stamp for the pen, the word 'love' and the scrolls.  I also coloured the pen gold on the nib and pocket clip and it is covered in glossy accents to make it look 3-d.  The edge of the card was inked to distress it with a black ink pad. I layered it up using glue dots.

I managed to get one of those old books with a beautiful pattern on the edge of the pages:

It was called a 'Minute' Book:

 This was another one of my charity shop bargains today at £1.75.     

Thanks for visiting my blog,
See you tomorrow,

This one needed a better glue! It ended up rather lumpy!
