Witch's Boot Card


Hey there!  Today I'm sharing The Cutting Cafe's Witch Boot Card.  This card is not only perfect for Halloween, but can also be altered a little bit to be used a a country style boot.

I started out by cutting all my pieces on my electronic cutting machine.  There were a couple of pieces I did not use on the final card.  Those were the pieces that made the buckle on the boot band.


To begin assembly, I placed the printed boot piece on top of the solid boot piece and adhered it with glue.  I knew I wanted something hanging from the back of the boot but didn't know exactly what so I went digging through my stash and found a dangle crystal.  I strung the crystal on some orange baker's twine and secured the ends under the boot band.  I then thought to add some purple to the card so I added a piece of purple baker's twine the same way as the orange.  I then adhered the boot band to the boot.




For the finishing touches, I added some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter to the star that sits on the toe of the boot,  and took my sharpie and colored two of them purple to add as buttons on the back of the boot.



Here's a few pics of the finished product!  Hope you liked today's project.  Don't be afraid to change things up to make them your own!

Cutting Cafe Acorn Treat Cup Card & Giveaway


Welcome to the Cutting Cafe’s Blog Hop and Giveaway! Today we are doing something a bit different in that each design team member is giving away the very set(s) that were used to create the projects on our Blogs. You should of came from Regina Easter blog.
To create my project I used the Acorn Treat Cup Card which is part of the Halloween and Fall Treat Cup Cards. I used Canvas Corp burlap for the top of my acorn to add some texture and also added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges of the card. The sentiment I used also comes with the svg file, as well as sentiments for all of the other included cup cards. It's a little difficult to tell from the picture, but I did foil the sentiment with Gold Deco Foil, and used a Gina Marie Die to cut the sentiment out.
I felt as though the treat inside the cup needed to be orange to add a "pop" of color. So I ran out to my local CVS to pick up some candy corn....after all Halloween items are in all the stores now. Well, to my surprise, CVS had NO candy corn! They were loaded with back to school supplies! So what does a girl do? She scours the candy aisle until she finds a candy which is orange. What I found is quite interesting...they are orange creme Gummy Bears. I cant say they are my favorite flavor, but they sure did the trick for my "pop" or orange.
