Boots and Fringe Card - Yee Haw!

This card was CASEd from my friend, and Stampin' Up! Manager, Pam Stern. The only change I made was to add the second boot. Every boot should have it's mate, don't you think?

The new Fringe Scissors  (#133325, cost $9.95) are so fun to use and make cutting all sorts of layers very easy. My only hint would be to draw yourself a light line across your cardstock, 
so you will know where to stop cutting!

The card was built on a base of Crumb Cake and the fringe layers were Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, and Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. The boots were stamped on Very Vanilla and colored with the Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker, plus the 2 way glue pen was used to attach the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The separate boot was fussy cut out with the paper snips and layered on with Dimensionals. The Apothecary Art Framelits were used with the Big Shot to cut out the Very Vanilla layer and then an additional layer in Chocolate Chip was cut horizontally and slightly spread apart, again layered on to the care with Dimensionals. The finishing embellishments were the Rhinestones and the Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon (this one happens to be retired, but you could easily use the Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon that is in the current catalog.)

Hope this card inspires your creative juices to flow!
