On my card I used a tag base from Ranger and cut it down to fit in an A2 envelope at 5 1/2 inches, which is a regular envelope. This time I used Alcohol Inks by Ranger, the silver, grey and black and put drops on my splat mat and swirled them around with my tag. It dried really quick and I realized I wanted more colors so I did it again. I made sure it was dry before I stamped my images. I used the stamp "On the Railroad" Stampers Anonymous -- Tim Holtz Collection and Archival Black ink. I stamped the train track about 3 times lined it up each time. When I knew it was dry I stamped the train, once again about 3 times so it stood out. I made sure it was dry and backed the card with another tag and scored it just underneath the circle and glued a tag to the bottom to make a card. I made The hole and tags lined up. I used some crinkled ribbon through the hole picking up the excess alcohol ink and crinkling it and let it dry. I put it through the tag and when I mailed it I just pulled t straight when I put in the envelope I wanted to make a sentiment so Tim Holtz came out with matchbox letters and I did "Good Luck". You see I know someone who will be finishing conductor school and thought this would make a great card.
Here is what the card looks like:
