MonkeyMoo is all about cowboys Last year for his birthday, he needed cowboy boots, a rope and a buckle. This year I'm making all of his birthday week cards with a cowboy theme.
This week's Phindy's Place Challenge was to create a card for a baby or a small child. Since MM will be 4, and Phindy just happened to create this precious Summer Cutie called GiddyUp, how could I not play along. Be sure to check out the Phindy's Place Store as she's recently added some of the most adorable Halloween cuties you've ever seen.
I printed the gingham from a freebie I got from Bev Rochester's blog (thank you Anne for the link), The rest of the cardstock is some I had in my scrap box. I folded the gingham to look like that bandana around my cowboy's neck. The cowboy boot was a free svg file from Svgcuts.com blog. I used my MTC software and my Cricut to cut the boot out. I made the belt by embossing a strip of brown card stock and adding some "stitching". I cut a piece of silvered card stock with my scalloped ovals nestabilities to make the shiny buckle, and then cut my image to fit inside. The image is of course colored with Copics. I used Word to create my sentiment( I was running out of time as I have presentation to work on also).
Do you think my little cowboy is going to like this card? I do. Thanks for stopping by.
