Rain Boots - Make the Cut and SVG Files Available to Download

Here is another file I shared last year. It is a pair of cute rain boots. Great for a Winter or Spring card or layout! They would also be cute if you used a pattern paper like a lot of the rain boots people are wearing now. You could cut them out with a patterned paper or create your own "texture" in MTC.

There are several layers to this file. One is the base puddle that outlines all around the boots, then there is another top puddle layer that adds dimension to the puddle. You will want to cut each of those layers out in two different shades of blue. Then there is a shadow layer of the boots themselves that I cut out in black and the top layer of the boots with different pieces and parts to them. I choose to make them yellow! You can of course make your boots any color that you choose. Since there are several pieces and parts to them, you may want to consider using transfer tape of some kind to keep them all lined up and together properly for placement on the black shadow. You could do the same for the puddle pieces. This is one of the reasons I prefer to share the MTC files as oppose to the svg files. In MTC, you can see the layers in color but if I export it out to an SVG file all the layers are exported and then imported all in one color making it more difficult on the end user to know how the pieces and parts go together.

Hope someone can find a use for these boots. If you do, I would love to see what you did with them. As always, thanks for stopping by.
