12 Projects: Elf Shoe Card

Another great card inspired by Marie @ posted on 11/18 and also Valita @ . THANK YOU Marie and Valita for your inspiration. There are many versions of this type of card so here's my version today.

Here's a closer view of the shoe:

The message:

To make this card:
(1) 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” in Old Olive, score @4-1/4” along the 8-1/2” side
(1) 5-1/4” x 4” DSP, sponge edge in Old Olive ink
(1) Top Note in Real Red, cut in half horizontally, cut in half vertically. Punch top ¾” circle, then with ornament punch, pop with dimensionals.
(2) “legs/stockings” = (2) 5/8” wide x 2-1/2” Stripe DSP
(2) shoe pom poms = ½” Punched More Mustard, cover with Gold Glitter Glue
(1) ½” x 5-1/2” Very Vanilla CS, Stamp message from Four the Holidays stamp set in Old Olive ink, punch, sponge edge with Old Olive ink, attach to card . Fold back the strip right at the beginning and end of the message about 3/8" and re-fold out, clip ends.
(1) 5-1/4" x 4" Very Vanilla CS for the inside of the Card
Attach Gold bow to shoes with mini glue dot.

Here's the template I made for each attendee to follow to make the shoes:

Sponge the shoes using Chocoalte Chip ink:
Attach stocking, then add dimensionals, attach to card front.
The elf legs were positioned at an angle, some trimming will be needed at the top (see pink arrow):

  • Stamp: Four the Holidays

  • Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
  • Accys: 1/2" Circle Punch, Ornament Punch, SU Exclusive Big Shot Top Note Die, Sponge Daubers, Dimensioanls, Gold Cord (retired SU), Mini Glue Dot, Gold Glue (non SU)
