Flip Flop Fun

Hi friends,
Today I have a card I made for SCS Fan Club July Theme. Being part of the Fan Club is awesome! The work these ladies post is breathtaking- just AMAZING! But to be part you have to become a member, more on that in a bit... let's get on with the deets:

I took inspiration from my own sandal. I have a few pairs that I live in during the summer. They are so comfy like your favorite pair of jeans & T-shirt. I added the little footprint mark that your foot leaves while you're breaking them in. I know it looks like this sandal is two sizes too large! but this was version 1 in my playing around :) When I make the next one, I'll be more aware of piggie placement! I made the toes with eyeshadow applicators- just pat down. The rest of the foot was made by creating a shadow around the flip flop. I added a smudge of ink at the heel.

See, it is a card. I created the base card with the Sizzix
Sandal die. I cut another piece, trimmed a little around it, embellished it, & layered it on top.
Here's a closer look at the little piggies:

Here's the back:I cut another sandal & ran it through my crimper (that's what my sandal looks like.) Then, I ran my ink pad around it to "dirty it" up. What do you think that pink part is? Yup! It's a wad of gum! I know those things always seem to find me :( Trash can, people. Trash can!

Thanks for peeking at my card today & for you, friends, who take the time to leave a comment. If you're thinking of being part of the SCS Fan Club, you can find the deets here. I'm off to work on baby stuff- not for me! (We've closed the factory and the workers were dismissed. wink ;) But a couple of my friends are just getting started-- Gotta go!

  1. Karli, this is just waaaay too cute! How clever!
    Great job! Blessings to you!

  2. LOVE IT! Love all the little extras on this- especially the way your did the bottom of the flip-flop!!!

  3. This is just too, too cute! I love all the details you added to this sweet card!

  4. First I had to do a double take, thought this was a real flip flop! Wow, you left no detail out. I adore the imprint of the toes, the dirt on the bottom of the shoe, and the best was the piece of gum on the sole. This is an amazing card!!! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Wow! When I first looked at it I thought it was a real flip flop. You did an amazing job making it look very real...great attention to detail.

    The gum on the bottom was the finishing touch...trash can, ladies. Sounds like me...I look at everything a few times before I get rid of it.

  6. absolutely awesome! Just the detail alone is fab! too cute.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment :) So appreciated!
