How can I create a Butler rule to email a specified email address when a certain label is added?

How can I create a Butler rule to email a specified email address when a certain label is added?

 

Specifically, when I add a label to a card "Tim"- it will email the contents of the card to "Tim@gmail.com- in this example, Tim is not a Trello member.

 

Is this possible?

@Fallon Scoggins 

You should try a simple card lookup and see if it works. 

I couldn't quite figure out how to make the card lookup work to send out an email.

 

I did find a way to send a notification to a specified email address when a label was added through Butler but couldn't figure out how to put content in the email from information the card- any ideas for that?

@Fallon Scoggins 

 

when the green "A" label is added to a card in list "Doing", lookup a card titled "{labelname}" in list "Temp List", and send an email notification to "{foundcarddescription}" with subject "A Label Added" and message "How Are you"

Thanks for this- do you think there is a way to change the message from static text "How are You" to something pulled directly from the card?

@Fallon Scoggins 

Certainly, embed from {triggercard....} or from {foundcard...} into the email body read this https://help.trello.com/article/1157-variables

Can the above apply to CF? and if you use {{%CF_Text}} after your "lookup/find card..." what are you expecting? Try it. You learn best that way.

Perfect-this worked-and thanks for sharing all other variables. Super helpful!!

Hi @Fallon Scoggins ,

I just tried to reproduce it.

Unfortunately it isn't currently possible to use the email from the specific card in a Butler rule. 

I will be happy, if someone will provide a solution :) and my investigation was incorrect
