I've been creating some Christmas cards for Urban Scrapbook's display, and found myself at a creative standstill. I decided just to make a Christmas shoe like the Halloween one from Sizzix's Brenda Walton Slipper die that I made here, to get those creative juices flowing again. I think I'm hooked on these shoes, they are so fun and easy to create. One of our customers at the store thought these would make great party favours for women, with a bottle of nail polish tucked inside. But one of the staff came up with an even better idea, one of those little tiny bottles of liquor! Everyone agreed, and the nail polish was quickly forgotten!
I used Echo Parks, "Tis the Season" paper, white cardstock and vellum for my shoe. The snowflake rosette is from Sizzix's Tim Holtz Mini Two Rosette Snowflake Decorative Strip die and the vellum bits on the heel are cut out from Sizzix's Tim Holtz Festive Greenery Decorative strip die. Once I had my shoe and rosette constructed and the greenery cut out, I applied glossy accents to all of these and poured on Tim Holtz Rock Candy Glitter. I love using this stuff on everything Christmas!
I added a strip of tinsel across the top of the shoe before adhering my rosette. The small jewel in the middle of the rosette is from Maya Road.
Sorry, these aren't the greatest photos. I took lots, but for some reason these were the only two that weren't as blurry. I don't know what I did wrong there!
It did help me, I went on to making more cards! I also can't wait to make more shoes!
