IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT
Have you heard the odd saying, “If the shoe fits, wear it”? The saying is used as a way of suggesting that someone should accept a generalized remark or criticism as applying to him/herself. It can be interrupted as sarcasm, but there is a lot of truth to the saying. If someone is sharing information that seems to fit our behavior, we need to own it, right? I think so!
To that end, I am sharing a card I created recently for a “Free For All Challenge” hosted by Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was to make a card that reflects an odd saying like “Happy as a clam”, “In the pink”, “Two peas in a pod”, and so on. I decided to enter the challenge with this card representing the odd saying, “If The Shoe Fits, Wear It”.
As I read the challenge, my mind started clicking off a lot of odd sayings when “If The Shoe Fits, Wear It” came to mind. I remembered a OLD stamp I have of a shoe, and decided it would be perfect. Therefore, I stamped it three times on white card stock, colored the shoe images with copics, and cut them out with a die.
I used a die from the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set to cut out each shoe. I love the die set as I used to be one who cross stitched regularly. It is a fun craft using counted-thread embroidery.
To assemble the card, I staggered the shoe frames (or boxes) on a piece of yellow card stock that I had cut out with a die from a ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and scored with a scoring tool. I created the sentiment, “IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!” digitally, cut it out using the same CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set, and attached to the card front. Lastly, I added a few sequins.
I hope you enjoy the card and will return for other Guneaux Designs projects! If you are a Christian, I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!
