New Shoes

This is another card I made using the April Crafty Templates set, which this month is one of Leo's fab Embellish Buddy sets. These come in JPGs as well as PDFs, which really boosts the number of ways you can use them.
Obviously you can still use them to make shaped cards, but you can also make them any size you like! You can use them as images for your cards; print them off and colour in, or digitally colour them before printing. I've used mine to make Craft Robo templates. A couple of days back I blogged the kitten and doggie cards I made, today I've got my favourite to share

I loved this template - Leo 's put so much attention into the details - look, there's even the little label for the maker's name - you know, the one that sometimes comes unstuck and makes your foot all sticky! I even enjoyed converting it so that Mr Robo could cut it out for me. The great thing is that now I've done it, I'll be able to cut these fab shoes any size I want!

I used papers from the Goodies Kit, also available from Crafty Templates - it's all gorgeous turquoise, brown and creamy shades, with some ribbon, string of "pearls" and other lovely odds and ends.

I love this color combo!!!
Those shoes are terrific, and I too have had that label come off and stick to my foot. I like the shoes where the name is printed in the shoe instead. Great card!
