Cute Boots

There's a musical on Broadway now called "Kinky Boots"  LOL!  Well, none of those here, but we do have some cute rain boots!  Ever since I got this cloud EF from SU's spring mini, I've been wanting to use it with these boots.  Finally got around to it!

Both of these cards are a modification of the side-step/center-step cards.  I wanted to make it a center step, but they are actually 5.5" square.  My friend and awesome demonstrator Karen suggested I just make a center step but without one side.  I stamped one boot in Palette Noir, masked it with a post-it note, and stamped the other boot.  I colored them with Pool Party reinker and a blender pen, cut them out and coated them with Crystal Effects for a shiny plastic effect.  I let them dry overnight.  The top card is on a base of PTI white.  I decided it was too much white so made a second card with Pool Party as the base.  I added some Sycamore Street DP to the bottom because it reminded me of rainbows.  Then I had to figure out what to do with the little side strips.

The first card just has a strip of PP embossed with the Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots.  On the second card, which was already PP, I clear heat-embossed a little border from one of the sets that was in the SAB catalog (can't remember the name).  I added ribbon and a sentiment.  I thought they'd make good get well cards.

Here they are together.  I think I like the one on the Pool Party base the best--what do you think?

Have a great day!

I love Bootiful Occasions! I really like what you did with the rain boots, making them a pair and then making them shiny.
