My sister's family likes western themed stuff so I got the idea to make another shaped card. (kind of like my guitar) I got on line and looked for a pattern that I could print out and use. I came across this cowboy boot pattern and thought it would be perfect. I did have to straighten the left side so that the card would have a place for me to fold and still keep it together. After I printed it out I cut out the boot and traced it onto my paper. I had some self adhesive leather ribbon that worked perfect as the spur straps and the spur is a leather flower. The metal pieces are upholstery tacks that I snapped the point off of. I sponged some Scattered Straw distress ink around the edges and stamped happy birthday on the side strap. Inside I used the Hey Pardner phrase from Art Impressions and a cactus from Rubbernecker Stamps.
