Vintage Shoe

Hi everyone.  Our project this week for The Cutting Cafe was to make either a vintage boot or high heel shaped card.  I chose the vintage boot because I already had ideas of what I wanted to do.  Luckily, I had everything I needed, at hand.  I cut the boot shape base and topper and the flap for buttons, on my Silhouette Portrait.   I used a piece of what is suppose to be a blue/green shiny paper for the flap and embossed it.  I cut the heel by hand.  I used some fancy trim for the top of the boot and 4 smooth buttons for the flap.  I added the flower by the heel and some rhinestones on the toe.  What a beautiful project this turned out to be.

I really love the way this turned out!

These files can be found at The Cutting Cafe under shaped cards.

Till next time...
