Over the Hill Cowboy Birthday Card

Over the Hill Cowboy Birthday Card

Sunday afternoon I enjoyed making this cowboy birthday card for our pastor’s 50th birthday.  The theme for the surprise party was “western” so I pulled out some scraps from the retired paper kit, Dakota.  The retired stamp set “just a number” was perfect having the “Over the Hill?” sentiment.  I cut apart the sentiment & pieced it onto the right of the card.

I also pulled out the exclusive retired “Stars Shine Bright” stamp set from the Dallas Convention. Did you know you can bend My Acrylix stamps to change up the look? I thought my boot needed a little something…so I bent the straight star border to make the design on the boot.                                                            {**Tip for the Day: Try bending your My Acrylix stamps**}

I think the cowboy hat added a nice touch to the punchline inside.  I really love it when I have the perfect stamp to customize a birthday card.  (Who knew Pastor was a “Closet Cowboy”?!)

Thanks for stopping by!
