Rain Boots

I have the cutest little shaped card today using
a cut file from The Cutting Cafe
called 'Rain Boots'.
Talk about a quick card super cute card to make,
this one is it!!

I first made one from the cutest strawberry paper,
but was sewing it on my machine when it all went wrong
so had to trash it and wouldn't you know it was the last of that paper I had...sigh!

So I totally started over and decided NOT to stitch on my card this time
as it seemed everything I touched went wrong, ever have one of 'those' days?


I cut the base from white card stock
and then used the plaid you see a yellow card stock for the details.
Speaking of details, I inked the edges (instead of sewing)
with Memento Dew Drop London Fog ink.
I added the flowers (part of the cut file)
and used Nuvo Crystal Drops Ebony Black for the centers.

The little sentiment is part of the cut file,
I just punched it out and added the lady bug.

Did you know that all these files also come in 
not only cut files for your various machines (I used my Cricut Explore), but a PDF file as well?
So anyone can do these, machine or not!

So, make sure and stop by The Cutting Cafe blog later today
as ALL the design team will have awesome projects
for you today...we all were able to do whatever we wanted,
so there is a huge variety of inspiration!!
