If the Shoe Fits


December 9 - 15


This week's Stamp-n-Doodle Challenge is a unique one! Instead of making cards this week, participants are asked to make a Christmas gift, box, or bag.



To get things started, the design team made elf shoes.

My elf shoe was made with a piece of golden cardstock. After cutting and assembling it, I wasn't very happy with the color, so I sponged some Stampin' UP! Cherry Cobbler ink all over it. Then I sponged Early Espresso ink onto the edges to give it some dimension. For embellishment, I added a piece of Christmas fabric ribbon and two large buttons. To complete the look, I filled it with sprigs of artificial greenery.
