File Card Book with Brackets and Swirls and Flourishes

I got a couple hours of playtime yesterday...10 minutes at a time...but none the less, playtime...Mother has a cell phone and would call me when she needed something, so at least I was able to create for a while...This is my newest project...a File Card Book...oh, there are so many possibilities with this book...I know I did not do it justice, but wanted so much to share my new toys with you...
After I cut the file cards from chip board, I covered one side with pattern paper and one side with cardstock, that I had colored with ink directly from the pads, to create a faux fabric effect...I love that technique and have used it for years in my projects...I used stamps from Innovative Stamp Creations http://www.innovativestampcreations.com/ to over stamp the backgrounds and create backgrounds on the cardstock pages...Betsy's new stamps have been awesome to coordinate with the new die cuts we have...
And to complete the whole thing...I got my new Cuttlebug embossing folders and oh my gosh...are they "killer" with the die cuts...I also used lots of Stickles glitter glues on the brackets and swirls and flourishes...I love the way the glittery die cuts then look on the pages...

I will have a special offer to post on this book kit...y'all just bear with me...hopefully by tonight, I can get a little more computer time to finish updating and posting...
