I was inspired by this perfect cowboy design light cardstock scrap in my stash. The front of the card is all about the images - the birthday message is revealed upon opening the card.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • card stock scraps
  • adhesive
  • light sandpaper
  • Ink it up walnut pigment ink stamp pad

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I was inspired by the cowboy design light cardstock scrap in my stash. I made the front half of the card shorter & added Southwest border detail to its edge.
I cut four images from the Southwest cartridge on scraps that best suited the cowboy cardstock for the front face of the card, sanded them lightly, inked the edges of the designs and the card.
Finally, I layered & inter-twined the cutouts & adhered them to the card, leaving some edges adhesive free.
I cut the Happy Birthday image on that same cowboy cardstock, placed it on a solid brown medium cardstock such that the brown showed only through the words & for a dramatic effect placed it on another Southwest image; all of their edges I inked, layered the images & attached them to the inside of the card.
