BOOTIFUL warm wishes

Well, it's not Monday and I missed posting yesterday!  I spent yesterday driving down to Tucson to pick up Nicole from U of A to head back up to Phoenix for a doctors appointment (her 3 mo surgery post op).  We grabbed a quick lunch to eat in the car on the way back down to Tucson.  Made a really quick stop, barely got a hug and then I was on the road again, stuck in the slowest moving traffic jam ... it finally opened up and eventually made it back to the house!  All said, I think I was gone close to 10 hours!  Seriously and it's really only about an hour and 45 minutes from our exit to her dorm ...

So for today, here's another project & a tip from my BOOTIFUL play date with Elizabeth!

This card was one of our last cards to make that day, as we both weren't in love with the holiday boot, but we combined several things from here and there and this is what we ended up with (and remember to make sure your envelope is cute too!).  New textured impressions embossing folder, framelit die cut for the red polka dots layer, and the white layer beneath the boot too, then the cool trick of adding a layer to it, new gumball green ribbon and tied off with some baker's twine and a tag --- oh and TONS of dazzling details glitter glue!  We stamped the boot actually 3 times, once on red polka dot dsp, then cut out boot section (not the top cloud puffy section or off to the side pom pom, and 2 times on white.  On one of the white layers you cut out everything, this becomes your base layer, then you piece your polka dot layer on, and then you add the very last layer of white which is the top puffy cloud and the little pom pom that is on the boot (polka dot side) - to bring the white glittery pom pom back to the top!

note: never mind the hole punches ... this is actually a picture for a tutorial that's coming up later for another project Here's a picture showing you how to create the layer around the framelit (which is the white layer), you simply measure and add a rectangle of choice color (gumball green) and then the 1" circle punch is added to each edge around the rounded part!  Tah-dah!!!  A perfect layer that is easy peasy!

Have a great day!  See you tomorrow!
