More Cowboy Cards

Hello Friends,

I have two more Cowboy Cards for OWH for their Special Request of Cowboy Cards to share with you today!!  Here is the first one:


For this A2 card I started with tan cardstock for the base of the card, I added the horseshoe paper to the base.  Next I used the Express Edge Howdy and cut it out in brown and put that on the bottom of the card. I cut out the cactus with an old sizzix die that I have and then I added the Mrs. Grossman horseshoe stickers to the card.  All set for a rootin' tootin' cowboy!!

Here is the second one:


For this A2 card I used a light blue cardstock for the base, then I cut out the brown patterned paper with the Express Edge Howdy and attached that to the card.  I used some cactus dies, an old sizzix cowboy hat die and a couple of star punches to finish off the card.  I added some brads to the hat and placed the ribbon down the side of the card.  That's it!  I think I might have a few more ideas for some more cowboy hats, but we shall see.

I hope I have inspired you to create something today!  I appreciate all the comments that you leave for me and I thank you for them!!

    1. The large cactus on the top card is an old sizzix die. The smaller cactus dies were from Remember When Scrapbooking, I got them quite a few years ago and I don't even know if the store is still around or if they have that die left in stock. The store was in Texas. You can always try to find it on e-bay.
