Happy birthday - vintage shoe design 6" card - day 208 of my 366 day challenge

Happy birthday - vintage shoe design 6" card - 
day 208 of my 366 day challenge


Hi Craft addicts

I have made this quick and simple tentfold card for today's challenge (day 208 of 366) using a die cut from Tattered Lace and the sentiment is one that I cut out using my Brother Scan n Cut machine.

Happy birthday - vintage shoe design 6" card


Using the "Lu Lu Shoe" die from Tattered Lace, I cut it out in black cardstock (Lynda Chapman's from Creative Crafting World) and glued it to a panel which I had taken from the standard templates from the Brother ScanNCut (rounded corner rectangle measuring 9.5x.7.5cm) and had cut it out in red card.

Once that was done, I then added a "Gold and red" frame which I had left over from a Hunkydory kit and glued it to the panel trying to make sure that the shoe was in the middle. I then attached it to the centre of the card using some thick foam pads to give it some height.

I then cut out the "Happy Birthday" sentiment in red cardstock using the template I had previously designed in CANVAS using my Brother ScanNCut and glued both parts to the top and bottom of the card. 

To finish the card off I added a single white Nuvo crystal drop to the front of the shoe and three drops of  their "Golden Sunset" glitter crystal drops to the border edges.

And there you are....a really simple and fun card.  Don't forget you can visit my website The Handmade Crafts Shop to see what I have for sale (including this card)
