40th Birthday High Heeled Sandal

Hello Everybody, well what a difference in the weather yesterday! From being frozen solid for a few days it was back to being washed away! And the winds were incredible. I really don't like wind!!! It is so destructive.

Well as you can see I have moved away from Christmas and made an easel card for a 40th birthday. The stiletto sandal is decoupaged and I added tiny pearls to the butterflies bodies. The edges of the paper doily have been glued and glittered. I actually got this, together with a lemon and a lilac one,  from the Ribbon Box and I think it has come up pretty well. I have made this for my sister to give to her daughter-in-law. Actually I will make one  more than she can choose which one she would like and I'll have one of the others and one also for my nephew. The yellow daisy card I showed a couple of weeks ago is for the same person. I usually allow them the choice and then I take what's left. Still, since I will have made them all I guess I should like them all too so it won't matter which I send.

Take care and have a good day.

love from Christine xx

  9. Hi Christine,
    what a stunning card. A fabulous creation soooooo beautiful. I too love that shoe. I bet she is going to love that when she receives it.
    Hope the wind didn't damage anything around your home yesterday.
    Thank you for your wonderful comments on my card yesterday if it wasn't for my sister in law I would have sent it to you. She is the one who has just lost her husband so I couldn't do her one with Happy Christmas on.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  16. Hi Christine - I have never been much into decoupage but I really do think that this image benefits from this technique. It makes it stand out and look real. I love the colours and the design so much. Beautiful embellishments as well.

    She will lurve this card!
