When I mess about trying to decide where to put the tiniest and most insignificant of flat back gem I call it Fiddle Farting, hence the name of the blog!!!

Line Dance/ Cowboy Boot Card
My apologies, I was trying to be too arty farty but have only succeeded in showing half a card. Whatever possessed me to miss the top and bottom off. I just hope you get the gist of what I have done! What a numpty!
This is a large A5 sized card. The lettering is done using Papermania alphabet stickers and says "Yee Ha, Harry is 60 Today"
The boots are free clipart images, enlarged, cut out and then embellished with small plain stars, flat backed gems and faux stitching along the paler lines, then put on foam pads for a 3D effect.
The background paper is from Daisy and Dandelion, “A Winter’s Tale Collection’. A few hologram stars complete the design.
I always use is a white linen card from The Papermill Shop because I like the texture and effect when it is printed on. However I have to feed it through my printer very carefully as it is thicker than it likes! (I have an Espom Photo R220)
My cards always have an insert in a light paper, usually white, but occasionally coloured because it looks classier. If it is a large card, like this, I print a greeting inside.
