Cricut Just Because Cards Boot Scootin' Fun Card


And we're back!  Melanie and Joy's Caribbean Cricut vacation and "week after" recovery is over and we're so glad to be crafting again!

Welcome to today's fun boot scootin' easy card!  I used the boot from the Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge and using the flip and weld feature on the Gypsy, I created a shaped card.


I set the size at 5" for the boot shadow layer and created the deep pink card layer.  Then, using the boot layers, I made all the other parts.  The card measures approximately 5" tall by 3" wide.  It would make a really cute card to go on a gift bag also due to it's smaller size.


I love to use the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles folder to add texture to my cuts - especially things like balls, whales, fish and of course, these boots.  By sanding some of the bubbles, I created an ostrich/leather like texture for the boots.  Some gems and faux stitching finish things off.


I love, love, love this "Brave Girls" stamp set by Melody Ross for Unity Stamps (see HERE to buy them).  How cute and inspiring is this message!

Want to see a "guy version" of this card?  Check out my personal blog at Obsessed with Scrapbooking to see the complementary card.

I will have the Gypsy file up for this boot card tomorrow and will have a link to it.  Working out some issues with 4shared...

Melanie is doing some fun, funky stuff with the Imagine machine on her blog,  Courtney Lane Designs!  Don't miss out on her project today!

Have a great day! This post may contain affiliate links.

Roenick said...

Love it! Very cute for a dance party invite too.

Does one have to have a Gypsy in order to get this to work? Yes, I know one should - but I don't yet and am unsure what/how they tie in.

Anonymous said...

Making a shaped card is much cuter than the actual card in Just Because. I imagine that I could adapt the directions using Design Studio ??

Maureen Reiss said...

Your card is soooo super cute!! Love the bling!!
