High Heel Card with Cricut Explore

Hi everyone,

Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE my Cricut Explore?  It is amazing what this machine can do. I wanted to make birthday card showcasing a high heel for my sister, she loves her shoes. I couldn't find one in Design Space that I was happy with, so I started searching Pinterest.  I found the perfect shoe.

This shoe was designed by a very talented lady, Tanya Bell.  The template for this shoe and card is on her blog, StampinT.  she offers her template in a PDF file.  It took a little effort on my part to convert it to an SVG, only because I had never converted a PDF file before, but I finally did it.  Her template includes an open toe and closed toe.

The template was missing a base for the image without using the card, I contacted her and she promptly provided what I was looking for.  I can't share the svg file, because it is not mine to share, but if you purchase this template from Tanya and would like the Svg, please have Tanya contact me and I will send her the Svg to share with her template.

There is also a you tube video on making this shoe, which is a bit different, but is another version.

I just used the shoe, and layered it on top of a piece of card stock I embossed with my Quaterfoil folder from CTMH.  My heel image was sized at about about 4".  The pearls I used were purchased from Hobby Lobby, they are the strip of pearls that are all connected, I just colored them with my CTMH Shin Han Twin Touch markers, these are alcohol markers. I also added a strip of glitter wash tape.

The leopard paper and metallic brown (heel) was from Hobby Lobby, the other card stock was from CTMH, Colonial White and  Saddle.

I wrote the sentiment with my Explore using font Soiree Lettering Grace, the happy birthday was from the stamp set,  from CTMH, #D1475 - Card Chatter, Birthday Occasions.

I think I will make a few more of these for the Diva's in my life.
