I'm pleased to say I had fun making this one, doing some of my fave techniques - distressing, ribbon crinkling and die cutting.
I started by die cutting the frame from some scrap leather, I really like cutting with different materials to paper. I have inked it for a worn look and used an Echo Park digi image in the center printed onto Bazzill. The kraft card has been embossed and lightly inked with hand stiching, and I've distressed all my edges, sanding them and inking with chalk ink.
Tim Holtz brackets die on the ends of the card gives it some shape.
I used cream seam binding and coloured it with Pro Markers, and then wet and scrunched it, I so enjoy doing this! The button started out as plain chipboard, which I've stamped with a doily style stamp from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden set. The side tab is a printed greeting die cut with Nestibilities.
