Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

A few weeks ago, I purchased a stamp with a cowgirl on it (StampendousCRW124) Rodeo Girl, so this week, we are going to go a little bit country!

I made this tag.

And I made this card.

And this is an image I found by googling Cowboy boot that I used
to make the card.There are lots of choices. I printed it out, sized it on my printer to a size I liked for a card,
 then traced the outline on the backside, because I wanted the boot facing the other way.
I then cut the individual pieces out of card stock and designer papers.

I used the original shape intact, after I traced it on the opposite side
to cut out a card shape on a folded piece of brown card stock.
Line up the edge of the boot on the fold and just enough of it will rest
against the fold to create a card shape.  Then decide what paper you want to
use for your card and cute the six pieces you will need to create
the boot and glue in place.  Fill in the faux stitching where shown on the original.
I sponged Vintage Photo distress ink around the edge of the boot.
Added a metal corner and some Prima Flowers.
                                        Designer paper is from Glitz 6x6 Paper Pack, French Kiss   

This is a fun stamp, and I am loving the boot card.  Depending on the size you make, it might take a larger mailing envelope and extra postage.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later..........

Stamping on the burlap goes perfect with the boot. Love the boot. The brown looks like soft suede leather to me. Awesome and thanks for the pattern and tutorial.

Wow Sue, This is unbelievably gorgeous, both the tag and the boot. Thanks for the direction for making the boot. It is just perfect, the right amount of "aging" with your sponging, the perfect papers, everything. Have a great day.
