Flashback Friday – Ways to Use Script

Thursday’s Ways to Use It challenge on SCS was all about using script. “You can use an old book page, music sheets, stamped script, or your own hand writing on your card.” Well, I wasn’t able to make a new card, so I thought I would browse my galleries and look for some ways I’ve used it in the past. Here are a few of my faves.

CAS131 – It’s CAS to some and not to others. Regardless, I wanted to show one example of a partial image where I purposely didn’t completely stamp the script background.

SCS Featured Stamper: pawallen142

* Same colors and layout (But I used more kraft instead of white and red.)
* Different script, flower images, and embossing folder
* Instead of taffeta ribbon, I used organdy ribbon.
* Instead of of a border punch, I used a Nestabilities die cut.
