Happiness.....

     A few weeks back I saw this sweet horseshoe die by Provo Craft used on a card, I knew I had to have it, and was able to find one for sale on e-bay.  When it arrived I couldn't wait to use it.  The first set of horseshoes I made were with a pewter colored paper and I scuffed up the edges with silver ink.  Once I laid the card out I determined I needed a different color horseshoe.  I ran the die thru my CB again with brown paper and used my gold Color Box ink to scuff the edges, giving it a nice used patina.

    This Mustang stamp is a favorite of mine from   Serendipity Stamps.....so regal looking. While I wanted to use my new horseshoe die, I will have to admit that this card really ended up  being about the inside.  I am not sure what this layout is called but when I saw it here I had to try this cut and fold technique. It was pretty simple, all I needed was a 5" x 10.5" piece of card stock, a few cuts, and scores an inch wide, and viola -- a lovely looking and unique pop out for my inside.  I made a second card with some fabulous polka dot paper, its is posted over at Splitcoaststampers.
     When I was finished with this card I gave it to my friend Lori who owns a beautiful thoroughbred named Tuscany - I thought she would appreciate it.

Materials:  Serendipity Stamp, Hampton Art Sentiment, Cuttlebug Die, Spellbinders Die, Xyron, Krylon Pen
