Today, I'm using the Horse Frontier Set....I like to have a western set available, so I'm glad they added this set.
For this first card, I used the Louis L'amour quote for a birthday card for my husband. He is a Louis L'amour fan because his grandfather was, which I think is sweet. The Cajun Craze, Midnight Muse and Soft Suede are an easy color combination, and the woodgrain makes a fence post like background. Some denim ribbon and a bit of linen thread complete it simply.
Next, is this card created to show the set watercolored. The chocolate chip makes a nice bay brown, and the Primrose Petals sentiment makes it perfect for a cowgirl since this card will be for a friend whose birthday is in August. The Itty Bitty Banner is curved to make it wavy. I used the chevron embossing folder on the Gumball green cardstock with the Stitched Satin ribbon, and the green brads are Garden Green as is the grass in the picture.
Finally, I'm channeling my inner Campfire Girl (I actually was one and made these several different ways). I made this pencil can to give to the same friend's daughters for their homework desk. My daughter suggested it--How could I refuse? I wanted to add bling or brads, but I was afraid I would accidentally take it to an even more Campfire Girl level.
Now it is time to travel to Rubber Stamping and Card Making with Yapha for a look at her pretty A Fitting Occasion creations. I hope you enjoy our tour.
