I used to be on a cutting file design team from 2005 to about 2010. I don't remember when I first created this card (a slightly simpler version), or if I ever offered it as a free file (probably, but if so, I don't remember when). I found it among my old Wishblade files when I was trying to see what images were worth bringing forward to my Silhouette Cameo library. This one made the cut, if you'll pardon the pun. I did adapt it slightly. It now has a shadow behind the "Howdy" which is part of the card base, and the "Howdy" is part of the card front instead of being welded to the card base as it was originally.
The boot and probably the "poster" (a "wanted poster" originally, I'm sure) behind the boot were dingbats, but it was so long ago, I'm not sure which set. One of the Western themed ones, obviously.
I needed a nice generic card, and this one was convenient, especially since one of them was for my son who is serving a mission to Alaska. Manly cards seem to be rather scarce in the Silhouette store. The other one will be going to my sister, who won't care that it isn't girly. She'll enjoy it, anyway.
