When the cardmaking itch catches up, one can only scratch it.... and that's what I've been doing for the last week or so - and since my night classes haven't started yet, I might as well get in some private crafting time before things get busy again.
This card was made this afternoon for submission to A Blog Named Hero: Challenge #26 - objective: incorporate a tag into one's card or project OR be inspired by the dog tags included in the inspirational challenge graphic below.
* the tag was stamped using IO - Impression Obsession (Alesa Baker Designs) - Graph Tag - a truly beautiful vintage design with a lovely flourish in the corner - unfortunately, you can't see it on the card as it is partially hidden by the flowers
* the 'truly grateful' sentiment comes from Hero Arts - Truly Grateful stamp set
* the 'truly grateful' sentiment was fussy-cut around the edges and mounted with foam tape onto the tag which was then affixed onto a piece of gauze bandage, which had been inked with Ranger Distress ink (Vintage Photo) to create that slightly sepia tone, and affixed with dimensional glue onto the patterned paper
* final touch - added some paper flowers with buttons and some rough twine
