Kick Up Your Heels Card by Sue

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue has made another cute girly card to share, I hope you enjoy it.
Sue has used the "High Heels" stamps from Hero Arts to create this lovely card.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Xpress it Blending Cardstock & Taffy, Black, Charcoal
Stamps: Hero Arts - High Heels
Ink : Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics: RV02, RV06, RV09, C1
Accessories: Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels Four, Labels Seventeen, silk ribbon, button, embroidery thread, rhinestones (coloured with Copic RV09), Dimensional Magic, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Polka Dots

 To make the white background, cut Blending cardstock 120mm x 120mm.  Using Tuxedo black ink stamp ‘marvelous’ from the Hero Arts High heels set, all over in a brick like pattern

Cut another square of the same size from the Taffy cardstock, trim on the diagonal and emboss with Polka dots folder, layer on top of the Marvelous background.  Adhere to a square of Charcoal, 123mm x 123mm.   Cover the join with ribbon, securing ribbon ends at the back with strong tape.  I have then layered this onto a square 135mm x 135mm and then onto a white card base, if you want to save on cardstock, you can just adhere the background to a black card base.

With the labels Four set, cut a black label using the largest die.  With the labels Seventeen cut a white label using # 4 die (#1 being the smallest), stamp the sentiment and a high heel, roughly colour with Copic markers, using the RV02 to highlight the curly bits on the heel and the toe.

One a separate piece of blending cardstock, stamp the same high heel, colour with the markers, trim around the shoe, cutting off the curly bits, attach using very small pieces of foam mounting tape. Colour 2 small rhinestones with RV09, add to the heel and the toe of the shoe, just near the curly bits.  Cover the entire shoe with dimensional magic and allow to dry.

Using the C1 colour around the word ‘Fun’ in the sentiment, finish off with a mini rhinestone coloured with the RV09.

The last step is to finish off with a bow, for this one I have tied 3 bows on top of each other, played around with them to form some kind of circle. Secure the button with white embroidery thread.
You are done!
