“Cowboy” is stamped with brown ink and colored with pencils on a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card. The Cowboy is then masked and “Frame #9, Oval Rope” is stamped on the card as shown. Notch a half circle in the front edge of the card. Pierce a hole through the center of the card. Punch circle above the pierced hole. Using a brad, attach a 4″ champagne parchment card stock circle that has been trimmed with scallop edge scissors. Stamp “Pair Boots”, “Chaps”, “Western Hat” and “Saddle, Sm.” through window, rotating the wheel each time a new image is stamped. Card by Rebecca Johnson.

“Bold Woven Background” was stamped on the back side of light weight metal and dry embossed with a stylus. The image was cut into a basket shape by cutting the lower portion of the basket separate from the handle. The handle was placed under the basket and the front of the basket was filled with the stamped cut out flowers. Strips of foam were stuck to the lower part of the basket and the sides to give the effect of it being filled. “Rose with Stem” was stamped in black and colored with pencils as was “Iris”. The flowers were cut out and attached with foam tape. A background was cut from white card stock in the shape of the flowers and the basket and glued to the basket, then layered on a deckle edged rectangle of green card stock which was glued to white card stock. “Friends are…, Sm.” was stamped on white card stock, cut out and foam mounted on the lower corner of the card.
