Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a card I made for my beautiful niece for her birthday. I just L-O-V-E it! I want to recreate it into a cool piece of wall art. The black heel, the hot pink, the shimmer, the bling… ah, love. She loved it too .
- Black A2 size card base
- Hot pink card stock mat, distressed edges, inked edges with black Ditto ink
- DCWV pattern paper, Luxury stack, distressed edges, inked edges
- Shoe cut from Cricut Wall Decor and More. Shifted image at 4 inches… I think. I cut the image twice, one in black, one in pink. Oh, I only used one of the shoes. It does cut a “pair”
- Sprayed Smooch Vanilla Shimmer on the black cut out, ran the heel through the Cuttle bug with the Tim Holtz A2 flourish folder and then again on the bottom of the shoe
- Layered the black image over the pink and let the pink peek out as the sole of the shoe.
- lined the pink sole with strips of clear crystals and used various mixes of sizes of clear and iridescent crystals along the heel
- Cut the sentiment label from the list of default images that are on the Cricut Imagine, not sure of the size. Stamped Happy Birthday with black Ditto ink, punched holes on each end using the Crop-a-dile and set gun-metal colored eyelets to run ribbon through, taped on the back of pink mat. Used foam tape to pop up the sentiment to the pattern paper
- Placed black flat back pearls in the four corners and placed a couple of clear crystals on the sentiment label
- Used foam tape to pop the shoe up on the pattern paper
- Cut about and inch of some black fibers, Attached the fibers to the toe of the shoe using glue dots and placed another crystal in the center.

Hi Everyone! I wanted to share a card that I worked on last night and finished up this morning. I’ve been wanting to use a pattern paper found on the Cricut Imagine Heirloom Cartridge that had dress forms on it with a very vintage feel. I also wanted to try to use my sewing machine and incorporate some stitching on a card. What better way to be encouraged than to see a challenge posted over at Cardz TV, A stitch in time. Well, that’s all I needed to get started. Here it is…
It took a little while for me to get my thoughts to work out, images the right size and the final touches. As you can see I went all out with a vintage feel. Heavily distressed paper edges using Tim Holtz Distressing tool. Wrinkled papers and lots of Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Tea Dye inks.
NO… the skipped stitching wasn’t on purpose but I think it worked out to give the wornout vintage feel. My sewing machine would skip stitches for some reason…. note to self… find out why it’s skipping stitches. Sorry, back to the card.
Products used to make this 6×6 card:
- DCWV textured pink cardstock, base, inked
- DCWV Garden Party Mat Stack, brown/pink doted mat, distressed, inked
- Cricut imagine Heirloom Cartridge, dress form pattern paper, distressed, inked, edges wrinkled and rolled
- Cricut Imagine, imagine More Cartridge, Frame cut only found on bottom page 15. Cut on Brown/pink dotted paper (same as mat paper), distressed, inked
- Ivory embroidery floss, wrapped around frame, inked lightly
- Cricut Wall Decor and More cartridge, page 74, dress form shifted image cut using DCWV pink card stock, embossed with Tim Holtz Alterations Flourish folder, inked over and edges inked
- Ivory Pearls to embellish dress form stand, inked over lightly
- foam squares pop the dress form up over floss
- Sentiment printed from computer on Ivory DCWV Card stock, wrinkled, distressed, inked, popped up on foam squares
- Singer sewing machine, zig zag stitch… some skipped stitches, using brown thread to stitch around pattern papers
I think that’s it. Hope you like it. I love how it turned out. Thanks for checking in with me. “Follow Me” if you haven’t already. I’m also on facebook, stop over “like” and say Hi. See you in the next post.
