I wanted to send a cute card to both of my great-nephews and, while there wasn't really a reason for sending shoe-shaped cards, I thought the image would be a fun one to work with. Last Sunday, we hosted a family picnic at the property (in the NC foothills) that we purchased last Fall, and it was a perfect, beautiful day. Our family definitely needs more get-togethers like that! Since we did a lot of walking, I thought the shoes might be kinda/sorta appropriate.

But why did I want to send cards to my great-nephews? Because they packed a few bottles of Cheerwine to bring and share with me. I often joke about not sharing "my" Cheerwine with them, and it was so, so sweet of them to want to share with me. Like I said, since the day was spent outdoors and we did a lot of walking, I thought the tennis shoe cards would work. I found the image on my Cricut Home Organization cartridge, designed the shaped card on Cricut Design Space, and cut two cards with my Cricut Explore. A retired Stampin' Up! star punch was used to cut the star from Bermuda Bay card stock, and Real Red card stock was used for the upper part of the shoes. I chose the color red for the shoes because Cheerwine (the drink and label) is red.
