Humor in High Heels... the Cinderella Glass Slipper



One last card, featured in last Saturday's Stamp-A-Stack Camp.   This one is quick and easy, a design to create a balance with some of the more complex cards(featured in earlier posts).  A more complex card for instance, may feature a simple technique... such as fussy cutting around layered stamped images done on my  barnes and noble tote bag inspired card.  This card was one of the simpler "balance" cards we made. 

Cinderella's glass slipper is from the exclusive Stampin' Up! set "Humor in High Heels."   One quote in the stamp set is from divine diva Bette Middler:  "Give a girl the correct footwear and she can conquer the world."  Isn't that absolutely true Ladies?  The correct shoes will not only complete the outfit, but instill some inner sense of power!  And, when our feet hurt, we are miserable, we hurt all over!  Blurffing yesterday morning, I came across THIS post by Shelli Gardner, CEO and President of Stampin' Up! telling us about her aching feet after attending the west coast CHA Market(Craft and Hobby Association) and reading her post, I could almost feel her pain!!   Reading Shelli's blog is always such a joy, she tells stories about her past, her family, and her husband... all of which just warm your heart and make you smile.

Back to the card, which features 1 1/4" pink pirouette ribbon.  I've used this wider ribbon on cards before revisit one of those cards in my November 11th Post.  Want to know the secret to knotting a wider ribbon?  Don't pull it too tight!  When you pull it too tightly, it just looks totally out of proportion with the rest of the ribbon! 

I really had planned to add our exclusive crystal effects lacquer and dazzling diamonds to the card... funny how some stuff never gets done when prepping for a big camp!  Perhaps I'll add it before mailing this card out, time permitting!
