Birthday Card - Boot

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I enjoy making birthday cards! After viewing the cute sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches for this week, I am playing along with the sketch for this birthday card. Card base is brown cardstock and measures 5" x 6 1/2". The pretty patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Simply Beautiful paper pad..paper that I have had for a long time. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Old West - I bought this cartridge several years ago and this is my first time to use it. Boot is cut 2.75" high. The cut image leaves little cut marks so I tried to make little dashes using the Gelly Roll white pen. The marks were so hard to see on the brown paper. Not so perfect, but after all it is a handmade card! Lasso is cut 1.25" wide. Two boots are used inside the card--those were cut 1.75" high.
Just Because - Just Kickin' Back is cut 2.75" wide.
Cricut Classic Font - Happy Birthday is cut 4.25" wide. It's Your Day is cut 3" high. Both phrases are used inside the card. 

Martha Stewart Ribbon Loop edge punch is used on the mat inside the card.

Swiss Dots folder is used on the background mat under the boot.
Diamonds in the Rough folder is used on the two mats.
