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!
