This set is perfect for cards for all those cowboys and cowgirls in our lives - it includes 7 sentiments, 2 large stars that look very much like quilt stars, two small stars, a To: and From: a pretty leafy triangle and the word Joy - for endless creativity!
Here I have stamped one of the sentiment quotes from the set in two different colors of ink - Nautical Blue for the top half and Elderberry for the bottom half. This quote says:
"Best Wishes for Your Christmas is all you get from me, 'cause I ain't no Santa Claus, Don't own no Christmas Tree. BUT if wishes was health and money, I'd fill your buck-skin poke, your doctor would go hungry an' you never would be broke". Charlie Russell
In case you are wondering - Charlie Russell was an artist who painted the old American west and this was one of his Christmas card messages - you can see his info on Wikipedia here.
I cut the sentiment with a rectangle Nestability and sponged it with Scattered Straw before taking it out of the die. I stamped the background on a separate panel in Nautical Blue and sponged the edges with Scattered Straw. I tied the wrinkled seam tape around the panel, layered the sentiment over the ribbon with foam tape and layered it all on the card base.
Inside I stamped one of the two stars in this set (they look like quilt designs!) and layered another of the sentiments over the star - sponging those edges as well.
Let's go take a peak at what the rest of the Design Team has created with this set! Here are the links!
