Pink Converse Shoe Card

If you haven't yet, please take a second to enter my 400 follower giveaway!


I have shared a similar card with you in the past, but here is a pink version of my Classic Converse Card I made awhile back.
I used the Paisley Cartridge to make this shoe shaped card.  I used my Gypsy to weld the shape and hide the extra pieces I wan't planning on using. I love this pink flowery paper I cut for the shoe, it's an older paper I grabbed from my scraps so I don't have the name for you! :(

The shadow of the shoe is cut with purple glitter paper from a DCWV stack. I added sheer ribbon and eyelets for the laces on the shoe.  I also remembered to add eyelets for the vents in the shoe (which I forgot last time).

I hand drew all the stitching on this shoe... lots of work but I think it's worth it! 

Here is the black on the sole, I had to add this by hand.

Here is my take on the classic Converse star, I used more of the purple glitter paper and added some glittery purple gel pen stitches too.
