I won a Guest Designer spot at Jo's Scrap Shack and Jo suggested a tutorial to go along with it. I've made a couple of these shaped cards in the past and never showed how to create it so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to show Jo's crafty friends and mine how to make one of these cards.
It's one of my favourite shaped cards - A lady by the name of Katie K first gave me the idea after I saw her icecream stand card tutorial. I call it a table card but if there's a real name for it I'd love to know.
I have a lot of photos rather than writing as I think it's easier to follow but feel free to comment or email me if my instructions aren't easy to understand and I'll be happy to try and make them clearer. Here's my finished card (below) so you know what it is I'm doing the tutorial on, I used gorgeous girlies from Little Blue Button Stamps:
This was so much fun to create, I also paper pieced all of their dresses.
So here's how to create your own table card:
Once this shaped card has been created you can go ahead and decorate it with anything you like! Here are close ups of my card:
If you create one of these from my tutorial I would really love to see it so please email me or comment sending me a link to your blog post :)
This is my third table card so here's a couple of links to see the others for more ideas on decorating: a cupcake stand card and Love hearts for sale card. I'm hoping to create and Christmas one soon.
Thank you again to my lovely blog friend Jo for asking me to be a guest designer, I have loved it!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Have a great day, I really hope one of you might try this card style, I'm excited to see!
