Love Letter

>> Saturday, July 11, 2015

Good morning!
Keeping with the "You've Got Mail" theme today, I've done some creative masking and inking to make this card!
I've added a Die-namics stitched die cut frame, a threaded metal button, a handmade green vellum envelope (glued to just his hand to keep from showing adhesive) and a punched heart to complete the scene. 
The creative masking and inking comes from when I use scotch tape on the parts of the stamp I won't be using, ink it, pull off the tape and then stamp.
The guy is stamped separately and cut out, I needed to have him leaning on the fence with his elbow so it was easlier to cut him out and place him later.  I also used a bit of Sky Blue Brilliance, a sponge and a torn paper towel to create some light fluffy clouds (sorry, very light, you can hardly see them!).
So Golfer Duff is not a golfer today, he is the recipiant of a nice love letter!
I've had a little jar of metal buttons forever and forgot about them, so the other day when I was cleaning and reorganizing my craft room...I found them!! Yay! I used some twine to thread the button (Naked buttons not allowed on my cards, LOL!) and added it to this guy card for an embellishment on the frame.  It is a nice copper color with a decorative edge.
I think Golfer Duff is getting ready to take a drive in his convertable to go see his lady friend...he is doused with "English Leather" and ready to go!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
