On a Happy Trail

Happy Trails to All of You. I'm aspiring to making a cowboy Christmas card, but finding it a little challenging. That Boho West collection just begs to be a Texas Happy Yule Ya'll card. (If you've tried it, be sure and leave me a note.) I thought I'd just warm up a little by CASE-ing one of Beate Johns' beautiful creations.

If you don't know Beate's work, well, honey, let me tell you . . . She is a wealth of talent and know how. Click here for Beate's card; she gives very detailed instructions on how she did the beautiful shading with Creamy Caramel, Really Rust and Chocolate chip. I don't think I've used so many colors to sponge the edges before, and I really like the result. I also loved the way she use the Paisley form from the Wanted. She used it in Creamy Caramel on the main piece, stamping it off once and then again over the image.  (You'll probably have to click on my card and enlarge it to see this detail.)

On this card, Beate stamped the cowboy in Really Rust ink onto Really Rust paper for just a gentle touch. I added the Linen background stamp to distress it just a little more. I think it makes it look like old-timey wall paper and takes me back to my Aunt's kitching in Indiana.

I found some great pre-printed twill tape and just had to find a way to add it, and those big new grommets beg to be used with the Boho West line, so here's the inside of my card.
