Shine On!

For the Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge, click here.

A woman at work asked me to make a card for her friend celebrating her 40th birthday and she loves shoes.  She wrote down the sentiments she wanted with a very personal message inside the card.  I finished off the inside too with the same papers.

The card is 4-3/4" x 6-1/4" with 2 rounded corners. The shiny paper is from Martha Stewart's Birthday Pad; it's pink although it looks very red in this photo.  But look how that paper shines--almost foil like.  Used Cuttlebug's Kassie's Brocade to emboss the white cardstock.  The shoe is cut from Forever Young (heels1, pg 54) at 5" because there are actually 2 shoes in the image and I wanted it to be large.  It measures about 3-1/4" with shadow.  All wording typed on computer.  Black and White patterned paper is from a Making Memories Black and White 8x8 paper pad.  Used 1-1/2" and 2" scalloped circle punches for the corner sentiment.  Added a white flower to the shoe with a Martha Stewart sticker on top of that--isn't that just the perfect beaded sticker for this shoe?! Three gems were placed on each side of HB sentiment.  Thanks for looking!


  1. This card is soo adorable. I have a cousin that loves shoes and her birthday is next month. I love the embossing and the papers, fantastic.
