Embossed Flip Flop

I know, I know... I'll stop after this one! ;) I couldn't resist making just one more! This is the last of several Blockheads Paper Arts DT inspiration projects using Lost Coast Designs border stamps. I have now used all the borders we were given to play with, and actually used two of them twice. This embossed flip flop was done with bronze embossing on black cardstock using the Antique Text and Squiggles border stamps. I even made a sole from Almost Leather that I ran through the Big Shot with the argyle embossing folder and black StazOn ink, and then added a tiny heel. I embellished this flip flop with a single black flower. This is just too much fun! :D

I cut out the flip flop upper sole and two straps from black cardstock, and another bottom sole and heel from Almost Leather. I wet embossed the upper sole with bronze embossing powder and the Antique Text and Squiggles LCD border stamps, and the two straps with the Antique Text border stamp. I brayered black StazOn ink onto one side of the Argyle embossing folder slipped the bottom sole into it and ran them through the Big Shot. I attached the straps and glued on the bottom sole and the heel, then added a single black flower. I've posted my template with instructions as a freebie to share HERE.
