Topboots easle card

This past week has flown by for me & I can't believe we're at the end of January already.
 Inbetween all my usual running around here there & everywhere, I've managed to get all the packs ready for our workshop tomorrow evening & I've actually made a few cards aswell!
We had a new delivery in the shop from Docrafts & when I spotted the Spots & Stripes Pastels paper packs I had to bring one home to have a play.

A few of my friends have recently bought or been given Hunter Wellies & they were rather excited by the recent bad weather & the opportunity to wear them. With them in mind I decided to make a few cards with this Woodware Wellie Boot stamp that I've had a little while & the paper piecing technique we used before Christmas at our workshop.

I stamped the Wellie boot with black ink on 6 different spots & stripes papers & then repeated it for the 2nd boot. Then I stamped it twice again on white card. I cut a different section out of each patterned paper for each part of the boots & stuck them down onto the white boots & cut each finished boot out.

 I covered the top & inside base of the easle card with more patterned paper, punched a strip with the Martha Stewart punch & made the flowers using Alterations Tattered Florals Bigz Die.
The thanks sentiment is from a Craftwork Cards pack & the buttons, bakers twine & ribbon are from my stash. I then assembled it all using cosmic shimmer glue & 3d foam pads.

Thanks for taking a look
Come back soon!

  1. Hi Amy,
    Such a superb card. What a fabulous idea. I love it to bits. Very creative and I also love those papers.
    I wish I lived nearer your shop I would be in there straight away to buy those papers and that stamp.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
