Today I'm going to share a few masculine cards made with the Cowboy Boot stamp from the Bootiful Occasions stamp set.

This is the card we made at the stamp camp.  It's a gate fold card.  The  Crumb Cake CS measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", then is scored at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8".  Fold in the 2 side panels and crease.  The woodgrain panels are made with the new Core'dinations Early Espresso Card Stock, embossed with the new Woodgrain EF in the Holiday Mini, then sanded with a Stampin' Sanding Block.  

With the card 1/2 open, you can see I added a piece of flagged Very Vanilla CS to the left side. The Cherry Cobbler CS on the right is raised with Dimensionals on the top and bottom, so when you close the card, the Vanilla tab slides under the Cherry Cobbler CS on the opposite side.  

For a little added detail, I pierced several holes on the boot image, then sewed Linen Thread around all the image layers.

Here are a couple swaps I wanted to share:
Here is a card made by Rosemarrie Gonzalez
She used a little colored thin metal then embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. 
Here's a card made by Tina Taggart-Smith.  She used the new Chevron EF for the Not Quite Navy background. I love the silver spur made from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a Silver Mini Brad.
The hitching post and rope are my favorite parts of this card. The post was made with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder too (but it's turned over so you only see the flat side).  She used a little hemp twine for the rope.
