I have some new shoes to share with you all today and whilst I wish they were real ones that I could wear this has to be the next best thing right? My collection was sooooo fun to put together and took me just one afternoon!
The card opens so that you can add your message and “Yes, they fit in a standard size envelop for mailing”. I have add many requests for a high heel card so hopefully I have come close to achieving something that you all like. When I was designing this card I wanted to make sure that you could get loads of different ‘styles’ of shoe using the one template and this is just some of the ‘styles’ I created using my template which is available from my ‘Tutorials‘ page.
This polka dot version is made using the card base, full cover, shoe base and heel pieces. I used clear embossing powder to make the heel and shoe base nice and shiny and the white polka dots are made using the Cupcake Builder punch.
This is my ‘Priscilla’ version (reminds me of the Priscilla Queen of the Desert movie!) and was made by adding Pink Glitter mixed with clear embossing powder onto the full cover piece before attaching to the card base.
For those with a more ‘sensible’ shoe taste how about this little Crumb Cake number which has been embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder. I have added a small trim of Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon to the shoe cover and the toe piece for at least a little bit of pizzazz!!
This is my ‘peep toe’ version which I have made using a little ‘leopard print’ stamped onto the Peep Toe template. So did you know that Stampin’ Up! has a leopard print stamp in the current Australian catalogue, no? That is because they have included it as part of the two step stamping Hostess set called Simply Soft. Not sure if you can pick it but check the image out on page 10 of the catalogue and the further left hand image is the one I used …leopard print right? This card also uses my heel guard to add more detail.
This little number uses the Peep Hole Toe Strap piece of the template and this time I cut it out using a piece of the Pocketful of Posies DSP. I have used Not Quite Navy for the Peep Toe and Shoe base templates. Some basic pearls add a touch of glamour and some paper daises on the toe are just so sweet.
This was the little creation I made for the video to show you how easily these ones come together. I went for a Red, White and Blue them with just a touch of ‘dazzle’. I honestly can’t stop making these cards and so quite a few of my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are going to be getting shoe birthday cards this month LOL!
The last two images show you how you can reduce the template down to fit on the front of a card and make a super cute standard card with a shoe feature on the front. Watch the video and it will show you exactly how to do it (really easy!).
This version I cut out the full shoe cover template using some of that gorgeous flocked paper in the Mocha Morning DSP pack and teamed it with a touch of Melon Mambo. Love it!
Lastly, this was the one I made for the video and features the very ‘girlie’ Attic Boutique DSP with a cute Pool Party Peep Toe Shoe on the front. Gosh this was a long post but really couldn’t leave out any of my ‘shoes’ it just was too hard to choose. Now for the video on how I made them ….
