Bob Loves His Tractor - Sliding Tag Card

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

Every year I seem to need lots of birthday cards!  So for the next few posts, I think I may be focusing on some!  This one is needed for a close friend - who loves his John Deere tractors and farms land in the same area that we do.

This picture shows the tag pulled out from behind the image.
This is Bob Loves His Tractor (U508) and Dot Happy Birthday to You Sentiment (F065).  I just LOVE this stamp.  I am always on the look out for farm-related stamps, as the people whom I make some cards for, seem to be in the business of farming!

I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I added some Glossy Accents to Bob's sunglasses and headlights on the tractor.  The Pioneer Logo on Bob's hat was cut from my hubby's business card.  The John Deere logo/decals on the tractor are Rub-ons.

The image was die cut using a Stitched Rectangle Die.  The background - Reminisce Farm Life DP was also die cut using the next size up of the Stitched Rectangle Die in the set.  SU Garden Green cardstock was used for the card base.  The main image was layered with SU Chocolate Chip cardstock then foam taped to the DP layer, with leaving an area to slide the tag in and out, free from any tape. 
The tag was cut using SU Chocolate Chip cardstock and a MFT Stitched Tag Die.  I cut two tags so the tractor ribbon (sent to me by fellow Diva - Natalie!!! Thank you!) could be sandwiched in between the tags and to strengthen the tag, beings it would be pulled in and out of the card.  The sentiment was stamped then heat embossed using yellow embossing powder.  To dress this card up a bit, a John Deere brad and three YNS-Neon Sunrise Gumdrops were added.
