Hopping around the internet today one of the challenges at Cricut Cardz Challenge was to do a project, card, layout, with shoes.  I have wanted to try to do a 3D high heel, so now is as good a time as ever.

My Shoe won first place at A Crafty Little Place! 

The shoe is from Wedding Solutions, The bag is from Once Upon A Princess.  The flowers are from Walk In My Garden.  The shoe is filled with dark chocolate kisses.  The bag has lip gloss and fingernail polish, in that really pretty pink, of course.  

The shoe is cut at 5", twice.  I used a flocked heavy card stock.  I cut the inside of the shoe just like you would see the inside sole of your shoe, folding it along the edges by 1/4" clipping the edges as I curved it up.  I made a square of the same material as the shoe to fit the heel around and then covered the bottom part with a small black strip to simulate that little heel cover.  

The flowers are made by punching two small holes (button hole punch) in each flower and layering 5 to 7 flowers and then folding each one up to create a depth.  Green leaves from Walk In My Garden added in.  Stickles were used on the shoe opening and along the edge as well as the center of each flower for a little bling.  The ribbon has a nice sheen to it too.

I added eyelets and ribbon to the top of the shoe to tie around the ankle.   A flower eyelet and a magnetic closure to the bag, along with some ribbon. 

This project was easier than it looks, I think fitting the sole was the most difficult part.  I fancy myself a cobbler with paper. ha ha ha.
