I don’t often make shaped cards but when I do, they are always worth the extra effort. Of the shaped cards I make, I think the crown design is my favorite. It’s easy once you’ve created a template and it’s so girly and fun to embellish.

For easy measuring and proportions, I created this card to be 4″ x 6″ in size and then cut out the triangles from the top. Some patterned paper from the Victoria Park 6×6 Tiny Tablet gives this card a young and feminine look and is stitched around the edges. Some Maya Road chipboard buttons are also covered with some of the papers in this line for accents.

Lots of pretty trims and embellishments are clustered together in this design. The main floral accent is the new Maya Road Antique Pearl Center Flower Trim and is one of my top faves from their latest release. You can use this trim as a ribbon type accent or cut the flowers out individually like I’ve done here.


Happy creating!
