Heartfelt Creations-Zipper Pocket Birthday Card

Today is Heartfelt Creation Wednesday and I have another card with the "My Guy" set.  I am just having a blast with this stamp set.  Be sure to stop by the Heartfelt Creation blog to see all the other DT creations as well.  The girls have been Wowing me with their creations and I wouldn't want you to miss there creativity with this set.
 Have you ever had an idea and started backwards....yep that's me.  I have seen beautiful zipper flowers everywhere.  They are even in the beading section at Michael's.  They sell the zipper flowers to use in making headbands.  So I went to Walmart the other day and picked up the longest zipper they had on the rack-it was 9".  So Saturday while sitting in my craft room I decided to make the zipper flowers for my card.  Well, I found some tutorials and I should have bought a 17"    Any way I still like them even though I wish they were bigger.  I need to go to JoAnn's and get me a nice long zipper!!!

 Here's a close up of those zipper flowers.  I have a box of these studs left over from my square dancing days-oh yeah you heard me  I used to make all my own dresses and my husband matching shirts-we were a pair!!!
 I thought I would also show you my images.  The boots and hat and pocket were all colored with distress inks.  Easy peasy!
 Picked up this pretty flower charm on clearance at Michael's.  Again I have another small stud in the lace in the pocket and the corners-just like a pair of jeans.  Here is a list of products I used:

HCPC 3460 Morning On the Farm PreCut Set
HCPC 3457 Birch Tree PreCut Set
HCPC 3307 Jean/PocketBall Can PreCut Set
HCD 720 Western Broncos

HCD 717 Layered Scallope Posy Die

Other: Hemp 20lb Cord, Floral Charm, Gold Studs, 1 nine inch jean zipper, crystal stickles, Rangers Faded Jeans Distress Ink, Rangers Vintage Photo Distress Ink, White, Brown, Navy, Indigo, and Green card stock.

Thanks for visiting.  I appreciate you stopping by.  Be sure to stop by Friday for my other project I made for Heartfelt Creations.  Tomorrow I will have a cute project for Cottage Cutz.  See you soon.
