Alrighty, then :) I thought this would make an awesome guy birthday card. The very first thing I did was die cut the sign from Kraft card stock with my Die-namics Howdy Frames and stamped it with the wood image from Western Backgrounds with Kraft ink, stamped off once. Then I over stamped that with the sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx and the stars in Versafine Satin Red and sponged the edges with a little distress ink. Then I made my border with my Die-namics Western Star Border Duo, another new die being released this month. Next I stamped the horse image on some patterned paper and cut it out with my Die-namics Circle STAX and matted it with Black Licorice card stock. The only thing left was to distress it up a bit and put it together. I was wondering how to attach the sign and decided to tie it onto some hemp cord. I was aiming for a barbed wire look—did I succeed? Finally, I added some brads for balance and it was done!

Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set:
