Cowboy Boot Valentine

Shirley, aka Okieladybug, designed this card and so I stole her idea to make the perfect Valentine for my husband!

The boots are an image that Shirley stamped an entire page of at stamp club a couple of months ago.  Then she colored the images and scanned the page.  Now whenever she (or I) need the boots for a quick card, all we have to do is just print them and cut them out.  Talk about a time saver!

Old West cartridge was used to cut the barbed wire frame.  Shirley gave me a great tip for inking the barbed wire.  Cut the image out first, leave the paper on your mat and hit the "load paper" button again.  The blade will align with the original starting point.  Remove your blade and insert a Cricut marker and then cut the images again.  Perfect outline and detail lines!

The reason I knew this was the perfect Valentine for my husband was the sentiment Shirley used inside hers.

"Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could be like a pair of old boots...the worse we look, the better we feel!"

It's perfect because DH and I are always talking about how old we're getting! LOL!

I love your card! Shirley shared those boots on her blog and I shamelessly used her sentiment too!
