I created this western themed card using this week's sketch at http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/ . Living out here in Arizona you see lots of cowboys and boots and you hear a lot of "Howdy Pardner" greetings. I was gifted a southwestern Cuttlebug embossing folder by my sister-in-law, Donna, a while back and I finally made a card using this folder for a background. I like the way it turned out.
I don't own any of the stitch dies to use as on this sketch, so I used my trusty Tim Holtz ruler that has piercing holes on it and used it. So, my card ended up with holes instead of stitches...oops!!
*Boot - Is a matted image using a Cricut cartridge and cut on Explore. I added a silver brad to the top of the boot and to the center of the spur.
*Howdy Pardner - Is also a matted Cricut image and cut on Explore. I added a "Lasso" I made from the threads of gunny sack fabric..
*Happy Birthday - Is also cut and printed on my Explore.
*Star - Is actually an iron-on star made of fabric.
*Background Embossing - Is a Cuttlebug "Pueblo" folder.
