  • Calling all shoe lovers!

    I had a suggestion of a shoe design for my cards, but I need some help. I'm not a 'shoe person' so am not sure about what sort of shoe to use. What type of shoe? What colour? Any sort of detailing? I really could do with some suggestions! Below are a couple of photos of other designs that I have done, so that you know the sort of thing that I will be doing with the shoes.

    Thanks!

    Emma.

    If you want to stick with the same sort of design, how about alternate shoes and handbags? A nice high heeled show would look best I think, e.g. shown from a side view like this:

      Definately heels and as for colour quite a personal choice I'd say but I am just in love with brown and teal combinations at the moment. Of course the pinks and lilacs are a classic choice for ladies cards and perhaps instead of an envelope it could come in a shoe box, not sure how easy or expensive that would be though I don't make cards.

      By the way, your pop ups are so cute

        SHOES...my favourite subject!!!!

        I agree with Katianne RE: style of shoes...high and glamorous and shown from the side.

        I always think there is something magical about red shoes so red or black should work best.

        Maybe a slight dusting of glitter to make them sparkle and maybe put some small gems along the top of the heal?

        Being a shoe fanatic i can tell you, half the appeal is looking at beautiful shoes, it doesn't matter whether you can wear them or not lol!! i think the key here is glamour and detail, detail detail!

        Hope this helps a little?

          I suggested the shoe theme Emma, and would like to add this in case it helps:

          My daughter the shoe fanatic, is obsessed with them. She cannot resist buying red shoes - absolutely adores them. I buy her cards with shoes on at any time of year, when I send little notes and stuff. She's living in London and studying law. She chose that subject specifically to fund what she hopes is a lifelong heavy addiction to shoes (fortunately she likes law and is good at it!). And handbags, too, but mostly shoes. When she moved into uni (halls) she took 20-odd pairs with her (on the train. She left food behind to fit in more shoes). She moved recently and must have many times that number now!

          Oh, and definitely high heels -Katianne's pic is perfect, side view.

            Thanks everyone for the info and ideas! I feel much more clued up on shoes now. Still don't know if I'll willingly go out and buy any though! I'll post a picture of the design when I get it done.

            Thanks!

            Emma.

                Well, I finished the shoe design, but I can feel a whole range coming on! I also think that handbags would be fun. I must be unleasing my girlie side! Anyway, here's a photo. I've also put it on my website, so fingers crossed!
