DIY Wednesday - Vintage Shoe Card


Happy Wednesday!  To get you through the middle of the week, I have a DIY for you.  Okay, I confess, DIY is a bit of a stretch, as it's more like a free printable.  But, the creative idea is still the same: a simple craft with supplies and details to make them yourself.

I want to extend a special thanks to my good friend, Karri, who painted the vintage shoe illustration we are using for the card.  {You will see this image again on our women's shoe box!}  Karri is a part of Joyfolie's creative team, and she illustrates the original artwork for many of our custom fabrics.  I asked how she felt about giving her artwork away in a free printable, and she was graciously all for it!  And, by the way, just wait until you see some of florals that Karri and I collaborated on in our summer collection!

Back to the card, let's talk supplies. For just a few bucks, you can get the following items at Hobby Lobby:
pack of note cards {4" x 5.5" standard size}
ploy flake
memory book glue pen

Next, download the free printable card here.   {Simply use the right click on your mouse to save.}  Print the image onto your blank note cards, changing the paper settings to 8 inch width and 5.5 inch height. 

Using the glue pen, apply glue to the vintage shoe only, then sprinkle with poly flake.  And voilĂ --happy little note card, perfect for a thank you, birthday or any occasion!

Hope you enjoy!!

And here is another photo from our new spring line!  Little brown-rubbed distressed boots, perfect for your future fashionista!  Coming the end of the month in size 4- youth 1!
