Those High Heels

Time for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #76, North By Northwest.

Great movie.  We’ve seen it a few times, just one of those classic Hitchcock movies.  Cary Grant & Eva Marie Saint–aren’t they just the most cool fashion-stylin’ actors?  Just screaming vogue.  For my card, this is the snippit from the movie that I took my inspiration, specifically Eva Marie Saint’s shoes.

I am not a shoe person, really, I wear birk’s all summer long, but I did have a pair of these shoes for my high school prom.  Italian, spent $90 on them, on sale, over 20 years ago.  I loved them.  They were identical to Eva Marie’s.

Sure Cuts a Lot Software has been so much fun for me.  I drew up a shoe in illustrator, saved it as an SVG & then used SCAL Software to talk to my little Cricut machine.  It was cut out on white & then Versa marked & embossed in Black EP.  I suppose my card is more of a Cut Out, rather than a piercing; hopefully it’s still okay I played along.  I did have fun with it.  Here’s my card:

Before drawing up the shoe, I took a peek of what was already out there & here are some examples I looked at.  Hope you can find some inspiration with these shoe cards too:

Making Greeting


Shirleys Cards

My Sheri Cards


The card is layered a little to give it depth & strength.  I think there are actually 5 layered cuts of the shoe.

The Pattered Papers is DSP from Stampin’ Up.  A Little Love SU Stamp Set was used in Riding Hood Red Ink & oval punches.

Thanks for the fun inspiration, Cinema folks!

Here’s the shoe I drew …

Oh yes, & here I am in the fancy prom dress & pearls my mum bought for me, earrings my cousin Cheryl gave me, updo salon hair, Brooke Shields eyebrows & my shoes that I oh so loved in 1990 …

Pin It!
