Morning all. I made this card for the stamp man challenge (Link to their site is on my sidebar) In a way this was an easy card to do, I just thought of something that I would love to receive!
Firstly I ran a card blank through the cuttlebug with the cogs and wheels folder and toned down with distress ink.
The tag is my favourite element, I made it using the rusty enamel technique fron Tim Holtz's book. You swipe the tag with weathered wood distress ink; Then pour clear embossing powder over it (I actually used UTEE as I had no other clear and it still worked) Tap some of it off so you achieve a mottled look then heat. When cooled then use the blending tool and a brown distress to go over everything. (I used vintage photo I think)
Wipe excess off then there you have it. I then lightly stamped a script over it in black stazon using a Crafty Individuals stamp.
The butterfly is Tim's Fanciful flight; another favourite. Cut, stamped at the back and distressed. Glittered body and then I used raffia for the feelers to match in with the tag.
Scrabble style letters to finish.
Hope you like it; now cI think i'll pop over to the post office and send it to me!
