Birthday Shoe card
I made this card for my BFF whose only birthday wish was a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes. This is as close as she got. LOL (Notice the red sole. Have you ever priced those babies?) Since it was a birthday card I chose to make the front a slice of cake. I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and was inspired by the BBTB cakebox challenge (and especially Nilda's take on it) and besides, I had given her a dessert serving set in the shape of a shoe and purse on a previous occasion so I knew she'd get it. I cuttled the top frosting with divine swirls, used the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo and Lace punches for decoration and fashioned a candle out of cardstock. I attached a stickled flame with wire and used Glossy accents to simulate dripping wax. I made a template from an innersole and sandwiched in some florist's wire to stiffen and shape the sole and hand cut and folded a heel. The tag was cut from Plantin Schoolbook and the words were from the Birtday wishes CB die/folder combo.
