I had this clothes tag on my desk for an age, it's fabric and made to look kind of vintage I wanted to pick out another different kind of packaging too so I dug out the old post mark that was part of an old stamp collection I bought (to use for cards, not really into stamp collecting lol). The post mark is from Honolulu, Hawaii dated December 1971, I think it's really cool! That inspired me to pick out the funky Hawaii shirt style papers (they're A-Z papers, really lush) and I used some Kraft Bazzill cardstock, wet and rolled the edges to try and make it look like an old package. The message I printed on some ribbon and sewed it to the clothes tag like a kind of luggage label? I fixed the card together with staples painted to look all rusty and old.



Thanks for letting me guest design DMCers! Had a really fun couple of weeks playing along with you! xx Leo

Leo, it's been great to have your wonderful cards on the DCM blog - thank you so much for agreeing to come and play with us.

I loved this card as soon as I saw it, and reading about how you decided on all the bits to use is fascinating. The "aged" effect tag is fab, and the way that you've added the Hawaiian elements really pulls it all together.
