Forever Young Shoe Card

This is my first ever shaped card and I loved how it turned out so much I almost didn't want to give it away but I did since I made it specifically for my Sister-in-laws birthday card.

I used my Cricut Expression, the Forever Young cartridge, misc. adhesives, rhinestones and paper.

I had to use Design Studio to weld the shoe together using the shadow feature. Then I cut out a single shadow for the front in dark metallic gray so you wouldn't see the fold. I then cut the shoe in black metallic and the upper part in pink metallic. I added rhinestones for more bling. The inside I used the shoe cut and did hide contour to keep the cuts out that are used to layer (ie pink on black...there are cuts on the black part to show where to put the pink). I stamped Happy Birthday on the white with light pink ink--hard to see but it was the only pink ink I had. I didn't try to make it fit in the standard invitation size envelope but it did so I call that a happy accident.

Thanks for looking!!

  5. Your card is absolutely brilliant. My daughter is getting married in June and I would love to make a SHOE invitation for her bridal shower - theme of the shower is SHOES. I just received the Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter and the Forever Young cartridge. I am completely confused as to where to begin but was wondering if you could help me and let me know first if I am able to make this SHOE card with what I currently have??? If you could email me any help, I would so appreciate it!!

    Thank you so so much
