Sometimes using an electronic cutter, such as the Silhouette Cameo or the Cricut, can really save time....
Here I used a file from the Silhouette Studio store, cut out both pieces (the open socks and shoe and a solid shoe) in two different sizes. For the glitter socks, I traced the die cut over the glitter paper and hand cut. Went overboard on the size, so I had to trim the point of the shoe. It's not perfect, but....it works.
For this card, I colored the stripes with Copics.
Both cards have a solid shoe for a backing.
Cut the frames with the Silhouette and used dimensionals to pop up the images -- letting the point of the shoe rest on the frame.
MOOD WHEN DONE = Happy
HUSBAND'S COMMENT = Ooh, I like these.
