Hi Fellow Crafters !
I needed to make a "Spinning Wheel" card for a SWAP that I am on the Cricut Message Board, and wanted to come up with something that would be a special theme for my partner. Since she lives in Texas, the first thing that comes to my mind is cowboys and horses.... I found some adorable Cowboy themed paper at Michael's and went to work !
Using a cartridge called "Old West" I cut out a horse and a "Howdy" and inside a sentiment on a plaque that says "Happy Trails". Most everything is mounted with foam tape for a 3-D effect. I used some hemp twine through bronze eyelets at the top....bronze brads on each corner at the bottom. Around the cut-out for the window, I glued some rawhide strips as trim.
I hope she will be happy with it, as I had fun putting it together for her. The wheel spins and has the sentiments on it : "Texas Is Bigger & Better", "A Big Texas Howdy", "Just Horsin' Around", " Have a Rootin' Tootin' Happy Birthday, and "Howdy Partner".
It is hard to see the Thumb Wheel control, but it is on the right side of the card under the "Howdy".
Have a Great Weekend everyone !
