Design Teams

My BFF has an adorable nephew and niece who love to get mail.  She asked me to do a couple of cards to send them "just because".  The little guy is into anything cowboy!  So here is what I came up with for him.  It was SO MUCH FUN to do.  It was great having my Cricut up and working and being able to use my SVG files again.  I forgot how much I enjoyed working with them.

The boot and letters were cut with my Cricut.  I used my Copics to color the string and make it look like rope, and used distress inks on the lighter color of the boot:

I used my paint program to design the fence, hitching post and horsehoes, then imported them into my Make The Cut program and cut them out with the Cricut.  I used distress inks on them and also my Copics.  The fence is on "pop up" pieces to raise when you open the card.  The horse was a bought piece by Jolie.  I added the grass, rope and horseshoe on the fence.  There are LOTS of pop dots everywhere: 

 On this last piece I left space for her to write a little note.  The Sheriff's badge was a piece I found in my stash that I've had for years - I have no idea where it even came from but it sure came in handy for this!

Here is a side view of the popped up area:
