Onto my card for our new Challenge.  I have really enjoyed making this card and keepsake box.  I have been talking about making another 3D shoe for ages and thought that this challenge would be a good opportunity to run with my idea. 

I have recently found a website by Carlos N Molina which is inspirational and provides a tutorial on how to produce a shoe.    For further info click on Tutorials and videos and hit on the paper shoe at the bottom of the page. 

List of Materials used to make this card  and keepsake box :o)

Centura Pearl Card - lots.  Pink glitter card - 12 x 12.  Fabulous flocked black and white paper which my daughter gave me for Christmas and I have been keeping for a special project. 

Variety of cutting die shapes made with Spellbinder and Cheery Lynn Dies.  

Flowers, leaves, ribbon, pearls and sentiments from my stash.

The shoe on the card is made using a digital stamp from Scrapbook Sisters - Wedding Shoe  and I have used the technique paper piecing to create the shoes.  The papers are from Kaisercraft and some black glitter card stock.  Decorations are further leaves and flower from my stash.

On the box I have used matching Kaisercraft Papers to make the shoe and the shoe template is from Chocolate Baroque.  I have used ribbons, flowers, feathers in black and pink, and a lovely little white tassel.  The heel on the shoe is created from white wire and pink and white beads, with a few sliver beads.  I have twisted the beads to form the heel and provide support for the shoe.

This is a picture of the front of the card showing the printed image on the paper pieces.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges :o)

  Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post, sorry it's so looooong.  Please let me know what you think of my box and card as they took me hours to make.  It was a labour of love.  Sending warmest wishes to you all.
