Cowboy Up!

When I saw the Happy Trails Kit from SVG Cuts last week, I knew I just had to have it!  I have so many creative ideas running through my head using the 3D Cowboy Boot!   For my 3D Boot, I shrunk the template by 50%,  and cut all pieces using the Silhouette Cameo.  For added texture, I embossed the side/toe panels and boot backstrap using the Diamond Plate Embossing Folder, then highlighted the embossed areas.  The backstrap top panel was cut from HVAC Foil Tape.  For added details, I added some Twine and Faux Stitching using a Brown Triplus Fineliner from STAEDTLER.

Not only would these boots be fun for a Cowboy/Cowgirl themed Birthday Party, I can see them used for a County Wedding too! Wouldn't they make cute nameplate holders, or table centerpieces filled with flowers!

I love your styling of this boot. It borders on a realism that really fits. I love the "spur" that you added as well. Great Job!
