Stuck On U Sketches: January 24 Die Cut Challenge - Something to Wear

Over at Stuck on U Sketches the current die cut challenge is
Something to Wear...I have the perfect thing for this challenge (edited to add - I don't wear high heels but I wish I could - I broke my left leg a number of years back and haven't been the same in heels since):

A long time ago I made the card below for my sister-in-laws birthday - see original blog post here.  I have been thinking of making this card again many times since then but haven't.  This would make a great bachelorette party, pregnant in heels baby shower or just a girl party invitation don't you think!?!

Before everyone starts to ask yes, I designed this with my Gypsy & the Forever Young cartridge, no I can't share the cut file - not because I am mean I just don't know how...that being said here are a few step-by-step pictures to show how this works in case anyone would like to see how I make a shaped card.

See the shadow behind the top white layer above, that shows that the card base is not a complete shoe...

I am using this as a thank you card for one of my coworkers who is really into shoes and is always so helpful.  I wanted to give her a unique card to say thank you for your time in helping me learn my new job/her old job.  I hope the step by step pictures were helpful and thank you for looking.  Oh yeah - the paper is DCWV The White Ginger Stack - love the blues, greens and gold foil!
