I made this card for a stamping-themed trade. I was trying to think of an idea, so I went to Wordplays to use an automatic anagram generator. Typing in "rubber stamping" gave me "perturbs big man" so I added the word "voile" and knew exactly what the card would look like.
I used a fine mesh stamp so that the background looked like cloth. I stamped the two phrases around the edges and then used a tiny awl to punch a hole under each letter. Red thread was used to tie the letters together. Finally, I used a glue dot to raise the image of the big man above the threads.
