CardzTV Birthday Card Challenge

It is time once again for a new 3D challenge over at CardzTV. The challenge is to make a Birthday Card (ie Easel card, S-Fold etc).  Here is what I came up with.

I found this Easel card in the Silhouette store but decided to buy it directly from Lori Whitlock so I could try cutting an SVG file on my Cricut Explore.  I cut the image at the sizes provided and it makes an A2 size card.

I cut the card base out of Kraft card stock.  My boot was cut from some purple card stock and the sentiment mat was cut our a lighter purple.  The boot heel and sole were cut out of brown card stock.  Before putting my boot together I ran it through my eBosser and embossed it with the Anna Griffin Matelass√© embossing folders.  It is one of my favorite folders to use and I thought it went perfect with the boot.

My sentiments are from the Country at Heart stamp set. Stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I added some of the stars that were cut out from the card base to the sentiment mat.



Now it is your turn.  Show us your Fun Fold birthday card.  By linking your project on Mary's blog you will be entered into a random drawing to win a free CardzTV stamp set.  So, what are you waiting for?? Get crafting and I will see you over at Mary's site.

  1. Deanna, I am totally in love with this card. It's perfect. The embossing makes the boot look so real and the paper you chose for the sole looks just like a wooden sole. Yup, I bought that embossing folder after I saw your card. :-)
