Friday Die Day

Hello friends
Today's Friday Die Day is again featuring one of the new
Amazing Paper Grace dies designed by Becca Feeken.
This is Ladies Shoe.

The die set consists of 5 pieces and this is how they look
I've chosen silver mirror card for the shoe base pieces,
spotty patterned paper for the shoe front and
brown card for the bow.

First of all the front of the shoe embosses fold lines,
you fold as pictured.
The patterned paper I've used is My Mind's Eye - Breeze.

You insert the toe of your shoe base.

Fold over and affix to the underside.

The long piece is the bow, bend and fold as shown.
Position and adhere to the shoe, it reminds me of the 'posh' ladies
slippers you used to be able to buy, the ones with the pom poms on the front!

I chose to place my shoe on a card front.
Ivory card base, matted with brown card and patterned paper -
again My Mind's Eye - Breeze.

The finished card.

Would work so well in many different colours and of course
you could make a pair!
Or perhaps a Cinderella slipper?

Ladies Shoe is a pre-order die and available in the UK,
arriving late March/early April.
This collection by Becca is absolutely beautiful,
look out for Gents Shoe too...!
Take care friends.
Have a brilliant weekend.

  10. Hello Christine
    I am playing catch up with your blog posts at the moment and at first glance I thought this die made a flower so I got a lovely surprise when I saw it made a shoe. I have never seen a die like this before and it has to go onto my wishlist.
    Off to read your other posts I have missed.
    Take care
