I have two cards for you tonight; I think they’re twins, since I decided to use the same paper for both :)

For PI – Cowboy: first of all I stamped him and mostly colored the image with Copic markers, paper piecing his shirt. I matted the image panel and popped it up on foam dots and added a sentiment from the set using the a
Chat Bubbles Die-namics die .

Here you can see one of the Country Charms Die-namics dies—the horseshoe. Isn’t it adorable?! I did some “saddle stitch” sewing around several of the elements for that western feel, and added a Jumbo Monarch Border Die-namics border.

Here are his boots—I wanted it to look like copper on the toes ;-)

And here is his adorable paper pieced shirt.

Here’s the inside with a sentiment from Country Charm Sentiments Mini on another Chat Bubbles Die-namics die cut. Perfect for a guy card!

And now, on to PI – Cowgirl. She was also colored with Copic markers for the most part—with a paper pieced vest. She was matted with an
Oval Dainty Doily Die-namics die cut and she also has a sentiment from the set using a Chat Bubbles Die-namics die cut.

Here is the new Royal Rose Die-namics in action. This rose was designed to look more realistic on the edges and is a joy to make! Some Upsy Daisy Die-namics leaves were added on top of a twine bow. I used some more feminine stitching on her card.

Here’s a close up of her paper pieced vest. Too cute!! I was trying for a buckskin look with her dress—did it work?

And here’s the inside with another Chat Bubbles Die-namics die cut with another sentiment from Country Charm Sentiments Mini. I just LOVE these sentiments!
