Good morning friends! This week I’m doing some educational videos on how to assemble some of my new dies. Many of you have emailed me for instructions and I think these videos will do the trick :-) Several left to do, but they are coming! Today I have a video to share to show you how to assemble the S4-610 Spellbinders Ladies Shoe. This is a shoe that screams girlfriends!! It will be right at home for wedding themed cards but my goodness, the shoe is so darned cute my girlfriends are getting put on the gift list.
This is the card I had in mind when I designed the die – I could just see a whole row of shoes. Crafting mimics real life, right?! For this particular card I created a card base using Spellbinders Victorian Arch – I cut four of these and adhered them to a 2-1/2″ of card stock – 11″ long and scored in the middle. The arches are adhered, two on the front and two on the back along the decorative edge. My sentiment is printed on vellum with my laser printer and adhered along the bottom edge of the shoe panel. It’s a big card (8″ x 5-1/2″) that will need a custom envelope but I’m a huge fan of the We’R Memory Keepers Envelope Board – having it in my arsenal means I’ll never shy away from creating custom cards.
I’ve assembled quite a few of these shoes by now and for this one I was tickled to discover that washi tape comes in prints that are sized just right for this shoe. I wanted a small print for one of the shoes so I just laid out three strips of the tape and that gave me the coverage I needed to cut out the toe piece.
The video will show you how it all goes together:
