Cowboy Boots in 3-D

I had promised you that I'd share another Imagine That! - Digies by Kris boot card with you, but sadly work schedule, various doctor's appointments and Easter took up my time, so I'm a little later than planned with this share. At any rate, can we just go with the "better late than never" philosophy? This image is Cowboy Boots and Cacti, and I've done something a little different with it. My BFF is on a different design team where all the cards are 3-D decoupage. Enjoying her beautiful work, I thought this little image would be a fun one done using that technique. Since you can't really see the 3-D effect as well from a front view photo, here is another one from the side:

The image has been printed off three times. The first image is on the die cut base piece. The second layer is the entire image cut out and adhered atop the flat layer. The third layer is just the boots and the three largest flowers cut out and adhered atop their corresponding parts on the second layer. Pretty neat, eh?

I've done the 3-D technique with silicon glue for the layering, but not having any, I used foam pop-dots. I have kept the foam towards the middle of the images so that they do not show as much from the side. 

My card is black, and I've simply layered some red bandana looking paper (which I've only had for about 10 years) to the black card. I've done a gate fold, and I used a Spellbinder labels die to cut out my base image. I used black ink and inked around the die cut before adhering it. The cut out is adhered on the one side only so that the card will open. I've used small red and black brads in each of the corners, The sentiment is a stamp, and once again, I used a Spellbinder die (oval) to cut it out. I also inked around the oval using the black ink.

I hope you like the card. It is perfect for a male birthday. Stop by the Imagine That store and browse through the wonderful images there. Kris has so many adorable digital stamps (and fantastic prices).

Have a great week. See ya'll (said in my best Southern drawl) later -- or maybe I should be saying, "See ya, pardner!"
