These shoes were made for walkin’

Hi friends! Happy Fri-YAY! Today is the 1st of July and you know what that means… lots of posts! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #60 – Anything Goes + optional CAS! I know I’ve mentioned before that I used to be very intimidated by a clean and simple design, but over the past few years I’ve grown to love it! And remember, the technique twist is not ever mandatory to play in our challenges! I created a fun shoe-themed card using a Bugaboo heels image from my digital image arsenal. Bugaboo may be closed but their images will go on forever! ;)

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis White 110# cardstock. I printed the heels digital image on CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock and cut it with my Scan N Cut along with several additional plain die cuts which I adhered together for some dimension. I colored the image with pink and black alcohol markers and added a little sparkle overlay to the black ribbon. Using the My Favorite Things Stitched Ric Rac Die-namics die, I die cut a strip of ric rac from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock, and adhered it across the bottom of the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Paper Pretties Sassy Shoes stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink just under the ric rac on the right side. I adhered the shoe just above the ric rac and added several tiny pink gemstones to complete the card front.

Using the same ric rac die, I die cut a strip of ric rac from Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and adhered it across the top of the inside flap, and then stamped the sentiment from the same Sassy Shoes stamp set just below it.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! It’s definitely CAS and it’s almost a one-layer card, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
