TAC Tuesday

My husband's admin is having a birthday this weekend. She is a horse lover and owns several horses so I thought I would use the "Happy Trails" set by The Angel Company to make her a card.

I started with Papertrey Dark Chocolate cardstock as my base, added a layer of Bazzill stamped in Burnt Umber with the fine houndstooth scrapblock. I stamped the vintage ledger scrapblock with Vintage Sepia on curious poison ivory and then stamped the horse image on top. I sponged the edges with Burnt Umber ink and wrinkled them up a little to distress them. I punched the file tab and sponged the edges, then stamped the sentiment with Burnt Umber. I used the Bind-it-all to punch the side, then cut slits and "roughed" them up with a stylus for a torn look, although it doesn't show very well in the picture.
For the inside, I stamped the vintage ledger scrapblock in Burnt Umber stamped off once. The sentiment is from the Papertrey Birthday Basics set. I punched the bottom of the cardstock with the Fiskars diamond border punch.

Supplies:
Stamps-Happy Trails (TAC), Birthday Basics (PTI), Fine Houndstooth, Vintage Ledger Scrapblocks (CHF)
Paper-PTI Dark Chocolate, Bazzill, Curious Poison Ivory
Ink-Palette Burnt Umber, Antique Linen Distress ink, Versafine Vintage Sepia
Accessories- Fiskars diamond border punch, file tab punch (McGill), Bind-it-all, eyelets, spiral clip, brad, ribbon

Have a blessed day!
