A Card To Share...

Happy New Year!  I hope you have a wonderful, happy, healthy, prosperous new year.

I was asked a while back if I would create a card for someone on the other end of the globe who is battling cancer and although I am not a card maker, I felt the need to encourage someone. Apparently, the card recipient loves shoes and I thought I would create a girly card with a shoe.

Echo Park Be Mine Collection
Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink
Queen and Co. Rhinestones
My Little Shoebox Mini Letter Stickers
Prima Resin Flower
American Crafts Cardstock
American Crafts Ribbon
American Crafts Foam Adhesive Squares
Marvy Uchida Black Pen
Helmar 450 Adhesive
Helmar Gemstone Glue
Silhouette Cameo
I used my sewing machine and stitched around the edge of the pink paper.  My stitching is a little crooked I see. LOL.  I then used my Silhouette Cameo and cut out a shoe design and a delicate doily design.  I then added some bling and a sheer ribbon around the heel.

Finally, I created an envelope with coordinating papers from the same collection and used my Scor-Pal and here it is!

It feels good to create for someone that needs a little boost.  Maybe in the new year I will make more cards to brighten someone's day and use up my scraps from my layouts.

Have a wonderful time celebrating the new year and see you in 2013!


  1. Gorgeous Lee-Anne! Don't know how you can consider yourself a non card maker! This is fantastic! Happy new year my friend!

  2. This is FABULOUS and PERFECT too!!! Happy New Year!!!

  3. wow the card looks wonderful, thanks for sharing some of the ways of making it. Well its worth trying, let me do it at my end. Moreover, the best part of the card is it has a message for people suffering from a menace called Cancer. I am sure such cards or gesture would inspire cancer patients to live their lives with hope and zeal.
