Kickin' Up Your Heels

Hello Everyone!  Today I made a card for our daughter's birthday.  She loves fashion, so when I found this glittered cheetah print designer paper, I knew I had to include it on her card.  I created the high heel from the Stiletto Card file from the Silhouette on-line store. I resized it to fit the card front and cut the darker brown background layer.  I then created an inset layer, cut off the heel and ran my glitter paper into the Silhouette as fast as I could, because I was so excited to see how it would turn out.  I ended up having to use a blade setting of 6 and a double cut.  The glitter paper was pretty thick.  I glued the 2 pieces together and added the bling down the heel of the shoe and clustered a few rhinestones as a focal point on the top of the shoe.  I couldn't stop there, and felt a gold bow at the back of the shoe was a must :-)  The sentiment is from Humor in High Heels (SU retired) and inside I computer generated a sentiment that says "Kick up your heels and enjoy your birthday". 

And what's a girl to do without the proper handbag?  It's just not possible to go out without one!!!  I created this from some wonderful gold, textured designer paper that I found at Michaels.  It feels like cloth and looks kind of like a soft leather.  The silhouette cut it like a dream.  I accented it with some of the glitter paper, made a tag for some purse jewelry.  I even put some "feet" on the bottom of the bag.  I think I could have gone on and on with decorating the bag, but I had to stop somewhere.  I placed a gift card inside this little gem and called it good. 

What more can I say.  I had a blast making this! 

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any questions.

Oh my gosh, Terri!!!! I knew it was going to be fabulous, and my jaw still hit the floor! I love the bling shoe and your attention to the tiniest detail. The coordinating purse sends this into the stratosphere. It even has a tiny little key!! Wow, you've outdone yourself with this set, my friend!
