Girly birthday high-tops...

I have a beautiful granddaughter who loves to play basketball. So, I got a high-top sneakers die set especially to make her birthday card, and here it is.

I had this great pink and deep red plaid cardstock, so that was my starting point. I found some deep red glitter paper and thought it would work well as a background for my pink high tops.

The stitched star-burst shape is a My Creative Time die, and the stitched banner for my sentiment was cut with an unbranded die. I was able to color in the first two words of my sentiment to coordinate with the deep red of my glitter paper.

I think my favorite part of these high-tops is the black and white twine that I used as shoe strings. I thought it added such a fun dimension to each shoe.

The little stars that I scattered around my design were from another die set altogether. I could have just used the star that is on the shoe, but I have a die set that cuts out three stars at one time, so I used that.

For the inside of my card, I cut a basketball and hoop using my Cricut and the All Sports cartridge. It had been a long time since I had used my Cricut! Can you see that I used more of the glitter paper for my ball?  My sentiment was computer generated.

I think my granddaughter liked her card. I was lucky enough to be with her on her birthday. She had invited her entire basketball team over for the celebration. They had a lot of fun playing games, eating pizza and opening presents. Girls who are 11 years old can sure be loud, though! They love to giggle, squeal and scream.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

So cute! I love the sneaker die. I've used it in a lot of different colors. The inside sentiment and decoration is a great idea.
