Life is Short - Wear the Shoes

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a pile of Spellbinders die cuts that gather on my desk - when I cut/emboss a die I usually run off a few, it makes it quick and easy when you are in a hurry - I am digging into this pile every now and then to create a project using nothing but these - and this is what I have for you today - not too shabby!? Wink:wink!

 Cut/emboss two (2) Shapeabilities Amazing Paper Grace Becca Feeken Arched Swallowtail Pennants Etched Dies #5 (#1 being the smallest) using white cardstock.  Score one at 1.5cm and fold forward, add double sided tape to the folded flap; adhere other - making sure to line up the edges, to form card base. Cut/emboss one (1) Shapeabilities Amazing Paper Grace Becca Feeken Arched Swallowtail Pennants Etched Dies #4 (#1 being the smallest) using patterned paper, lightly sand around the edges using a sanding block. Adhere to the card base using double sided tape. 

 Cut/emboss one (1) Shapeabilities Amazing Paper Grace Becca Feeken Decorative Swallowtail Tags Etched Dies #4 (#1 being the smallest) using white card stock. Cut/emboss all of the pieces from the Shapeabilities Amazing Paper Grace Becca Feeken Ladies Shoe Etched Dies using pink card stock.  Fold the top of the shoe forward at toe score line.  Sponge the shoe insert using Imagine VersaMagic Ink in Petal Pink while still in the die; remove and adhere to shoe base.  Adhere the shoe top folding both outer pieces under the sole – allow to dry.  Curve the bow ends towards the back gluing near the centre, making sure bow tips peek out either side.  Adhere small Mulberry Rose.

Adhere the shoe to the Decorative Swallowtail, pop up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares for dimension.  Add Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse on either side of the shoe and a large White Pearl to the filigree top of the Arched Swallowtail Pennant. A sentiment tag has been added to the right side of the shoe.
