Shaped Shoe Card


On Papertake this week, they are asking for a card in the colour combo green/lilac. I made this little shoe card, which I think would be perfect for a young teen girl. The shoe is from My Community, cut at 3" - the first one I cut was at 5", thinking that would be a good size for a shaped card. It was HUGE, would have fitted my size 7's (9 1/2 US). I should really have played around with my new design studio, but just couldn't be bothered to faff around with it, so I just cut another one using the flip feature, and attached them using a brad - it opens perfectly, I really wonder how often I am going to use the design studio software. I ran the sole through the cuttlebug using the small mosaic folder, the sentiment is by studio G. I wanted to do a circle so that the shoe would look like converse ones.

Love how you tilted the tiny mosaic embossing so it looks like diamonds. Now I'll have to get that folder...sigh

And it's funny to find someone that wears the same odd shoe size as me, 9-1/2.

Beautiful work!
