Good for the Sole

Hi Bloggers.

Easy peasy card today.

For the background, I popped a piece of blue card inside the Couture Creations Pastorale Embossing Folder and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The card was a little wider than the folder. I inked around the edges with Fountain Blue Paris Trunk Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped 2 of the shoes from the Creative Expressions If the Shoe Fits .... using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out using Spellbinders Splendid Circles and inked through the die with Fountain Blue.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags One and inked through the die with Fountain Blue. I added some 5mm White Pearls.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Pearl Swirls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Morning Julia im liking this card I think its because i think it could be used as a female or a male card by changing the stamped images. I really like the stamp set that you have used on the last couple of cards.

  4. Morning Julia. Love the colour of this card. Thinking I may have to treat myself to some of the Paris trunk inks if I receive any money for my birthday today. It would be lovely to receive a card like this but none of my friends are crafters! C'est la vie! Day off work today to play with my new toys - if I get any. Otherwise shall have to make do with all my old ones. Ju
