Saddle up those horses and join us right now for an hour of  Wild West FUN!
I created a masculine card for my project.  On the outside is my “Wanted” poster created especially for the birthday boy.  I used the Print Then Cut feature on my new Explore.  This is just a basic cut but it was my very first with my new machine so I’m proud of it, lol.  I created the frame using popsicle sticks. I stained them using my Tim Holtz reinker.  It sits on a burlap mat. I think it came out pretty good.  The lasso is made using some leather string I had on hand.  I tied it up and attached it to the frame with a small, black brad.

On the inside is an extra special reward.  My software wouldn’t save the picture unless I blurred out the denomination and serial number, lol.
