Zebra Stiletto Shoe and Matching Purse
One of my favorite go-to sites for svg files is SVGCUTS.com. They have a lot of really great sets to choose from and AWESOME customer service! I've had this particular set for a while but only just now got around to using it. I'm a stiletto gal, so I immediately fell in love with the high heel shoe svg file.
I immediately knew which paper I wanted to use with it. It's some zebra-print paper that I had in my stash for a while. I used two sheets: one for the shoe and one for the matching purse. There are some flower files that come with the set, but I really wanted to make some satin roses to adorn the shoe and purse. I am pretty sure I saw something very similar in real life! =)
The shoe file actually opens in the other direction, so I "flipped" it in MTC before cutting it. I also added glossy accents to the sole of the shoe to give it that patent leather look. The original cut file does not include a rubber tip for the heel, so I added one myself just because all of my shoes have a rubber tip on them. I also added some bling. I originally wanted to add some feathers behind the flowers and something large and blingy to the center, but in the end, I decided to just get it done and leave it as is. I may still add some bling or sequins to the center one day! I really love this set. It's definitely one of my favorites! =)
