Old West Tri-fold Card

Hi, all! I decided to play along with a couple of challenges today--Cricut 360 (Old West) and She's a Sassy Lady (scene). I used my Gypsy and She's a Sassy Lady's trifold card tutorial to create this card. I welded some rectangles (Plantin Schoolbook) and the arched shape (Gypsy Wanderings maybe? Not sure.) with my G. I then welded the coyote and saguaro shapes to the rectangles. Card base is Night of Navy textured CS.
I made front and back layers for the welded icons (coyote 2.5" in Basic Gray, saguaro 3" in Wild Wasabi) by flipping them. I also used my Cricut markers for added definition. I love those things--they are so fun!
I used my OLD Creative Memories curvy cutter to make some sand dunes, then traced over my rectangles and trimmed. I wheeled the sand dunes (Sahara Sand) with my SU Texture Jumbo wheel and Sahara Sand ink and sponged the edges. I also stamped a paisley pattern on the bandana. I punched a 1 3/4 " circle out of yellow glitter CS (DCWV) for the moon.
I was originally going to use the phrase "missing Youuuu... but then I remembered my sister's birthday is in a few days and she LOVES all things western, so I went with a howling birthday sentiment. I used the Jandles font (Lettering Delights).
I had an absolute blast making this card! Hope you like it too!
