So as many of you know, I am a mom of 7 children. We have six daughters and one very special little boy. He is the baby and my heart for sure. Well that little baby will be turning 1 in just a few short months. I have no idea where this last year has gone, however I have started trying to plan his birthday party.
So for his 1st birthday, we decided to go with a Cowboy theme. I knew that one day If I ever had a boy, eventually one of his birthdays would be Western/Cowboy, so I purchased this set and held onto it.
Just so happens I have recently joined a few more swaps...
So I decided to pull out that set and play. I ended up creating a few Western/Cowboy themed elements for his birthday pictures to go in his first year album. I will of course post pictures of those later.
However, for this card, I kept things rather simple. A few layers, some sponging around the edges. I added eyelets in the corner for my embellishments. I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for the Birthday sentiment and for the cowboy hat outline. I hand cut the cowboy hat out. You will notice I made two different styles as well.
These cards were made for "children's birthday" swap over at Splitcoaststampers.
The inside is just a layer of white cardstock with some sponging as well.
I chose to submit this card to a few Challenges as well:
