Howdy everyone! I'm back today to share with you a very cool fancy fold card that I created in a Western theme to enter into a few challenges! I used several stamps from the Bombshell Stamps Western Gal stamp set that I just love! I used the digital set but it's also available in rubber! Bombshell Stamps is the bomb - I haven't seen any of their stamps yet that I don't like! ;)

This is a tall accordion card and the fold is from the Technique Junkies "Fancy Folds and Motion" specialty CD. There are some pretty amazing folds on that CD that I really want to try... two down, 58 to go! Hahaha!

The card base is brown bag cardstock. The Western Gal graces the front panel, mounted on a die cut piece of faux leather. Isn't she just gorgeous?!

I paired some pretty floral paper with some blue denim paper, both matted on navy blue cardstock, and even created a lasso out of twine! I'm lovin' it! :)

The panel on the inside left is dry embossed and decorated with jute ribbon and a scallop border die cut with some tiny gemstones.

The signature space on the inside right holds the sentiment and a cowgirl boot.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

  • The Paper Cut Brown Bag cardstock; GKD navy blue and chocolate brown cardstock; Crafter's Companion white cardstock
  • K & Co. Julianne floral designer paper; blue denim paper from stash
  • Bombshell Stamps Western Gal digital stamp set
  • Copics: E000/01/29/35/39, Y17, B00/93/95/97, RV25
  • Sakura Stardust pen
  • Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die
  • Sweet N Sassy Small Scallop Border die
  • Comotion Almost Leather
  • Twine; light brown flat-back pearls; tiny clear gemstones

Stay tuned... I have some exciting news to share in about a week and a half! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
