Old West Card

This background paper has been in my stash for quite a while and I finally came up with a good use for it.  Making cards suitable for children or young boys is a struggle for me.  It's much easier to make more feminine ones, in my opinion.

I used the Old West cartridge for all the cuts on this one.  The slits in the images were all shaded using a Promarker and instead of fighting with the little black pieces for the hay bale, I colored them too.  Added a few stickles onto the word "Howdy" and was done.

Very cute! I have this cart but haven't played with it much. Might have to dig it out! Love the stickles on Howdy. Great job!

I agree that feminine cards are easier--they just come more naturally to women, I guess. This card is just darling, though! I think any boy or man would appreciate it!
