Keep Calm and Buy Shoes

Hi, Rubeena here with some shoe-spiration! ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you love shoes, then these cards (and stamps) are for you! These were fun to make but did take me a while.

My first card is really basic. I wanted to create my own shoe background so I stamped one of the pairs from Shoe Wardrobe 2d. Ed. Outline on white cardstock cut down to 4″ x 5.25″. I stamped the small layer in various light dye inks in no particular order. To finish it off, I die-cut the word ‘celebrate’ and some patterned banners.

Next, I created a set of five cards with the same design. I first stamped and cut a lot of shoes from Shoe Wardrobe 2d. Ed. Solid and Outline. I used Copic markers to color them in a combination of black, pink, and beige.

I cut out five tags so that they looked similar to price tags (I even added perforations!) and stamped the sentiment from Shoe Wardrobe Filled.ย Next, I stamped one of the frames from Vintage Frames in the following format:

I cut pieces from tissue paper to add to each “box.”

Finally, I added foam tape to each pair of shoes and arranged them over the tissue paper so they could look gift boxes or gift bags. ๐Ÿ™‚

I finished it off with some glossy accents on the shoes so they could look somewhat realistic. Who wouldn’t love these as gifts?!

I hope you enjoyed my post! Thank you for visiting and leaving me some feedback.

Have a great weekend.ย ๐Ÿ’•
