Here's my take on the Stampin'B's Challenge #73 which is to make a square card with a western theme. No problem now that I have this great Southwest Cowboy stamp set by Mark's Finest Papers! I love, love, LOVE this set! This card is done in teal, chocolate and rustic cream card stocks. I stamped the background with a retired SU! flannel plaid background using Toffee ink. The main image is embossed with brown ep and popped up on foam tape. The rest is pretty much self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I'll be glad to answer you.
This card was made for the Stars and Stamps mid-week throwdown challenge which is a recipe to use a diecut or punch, ribbon, and embossing. I started with a PTI enchanted evening card stock base, and added an embossed panel using the CB snowflakes ef. I created the large star with SU!'s large and small tag punches, and added a scrap of DP for the center. I added 2 SU felt snowflakes in the center along with a snowflake brad. The word JOY is die cut with my Quikutz from some scraps of enchanted evening and glued down right over the ribbon.
