Boot Card

Bitten by the bug 2 is having a garden boot challenge. So when I saw this rain boot in the April Showers Cricut Cartridge, I knew that I wanted to make it into a shape card. Since spring is here, I wanted to go with a spring theme.



Have you ever seen those cute flowerpots that are shaped like rain boots? Will thats where my inspiration came from. I added some tulips from the Create a Critter Cartridge to the top of the boot, to make it look like flowers were growing inside of it:) I used some of my Peachy Keen Stamps to give the flowers faces, and make the card cheerful.


I stamped some spring theme images to the card, and added some Studio G glitter glue to outline the flowers on the rain boot. For the cute little tag and (Happy Spring) stamp, I used My Creative Time "Teeny Tag Greetings."


For the inside of the card I stamped (Miss you) by My Creative Time "Small Talk" stamp set . I think this cute spring card would make a nice card to send to a friend or family member that you haven't seen or talked to in awhile.

I will entering this card in:
Bitten by the bug 2: Garden Boot Challenge.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment:)

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hug's!

Wow, so darn cute. Love the flowers with the happy faces peeking out. If that doesn't make you feel more like Spring I don't know what would. Thanks for sharing with us at BBTB2. Please consider turning off your word verification to make your blog more user friendly.

Love your boot card!!! I've been thinking about a card for my mom for mother's day and I wanted it to have something to do with Texas. I've been toying with the idea of a western boot (girly like) with flowers, but wasn't sure if it was going to look nice or just plain silly - thanks to you now I know. Your card is adorable!
