Yeah!!! It’s finally DIY Friday!!! Today I’m bringing you a super fun and super easy escort card tutorial using David Tutera’s (my absolute fav!) new paper crafts line called Celebrate which is available exlusievly at JoAnn Fabric & Craft Stores . His adorable card designs are uniquely coordinated to have only three easy steps… which you can see from the cute card I created in like 2 minutes below. But, I wanted to stretch the boundaries with this fun new line and show you how to easily create amazing escort cards in two very different looks. Not only do I get to share this tutorial with you today but I also get to giveaway a special selection of David’s new paper craft line worth $50!!! Details below…

Start by cutting your 4.5″ x 5.5″ greeting cards in thirds, roughly into 1.75″ x 4.5″.

Next, we are going to embellish the ends by cutting them with a decorative scissor.

Now we will start embellishing! Some of the embellishments from David Tutera’s new paper crafts line are actually sandable! Meaning you can sand the raised areas to reveal a different color. I used a simple nail buffer to do the job.

Get your choice of embellishments together and start adding them to each escort card.

Using the Sharpie paint type pen, write your guests names and their table number!

::: SECOND DESIGN :::

For the second design we will start with the same technique. Using a paper trimmer, cut your 4.5″ x 5.5″ greeting cards in thirds, roughly into 1.75″ x 4.5″. In this example I used three different colors.

Then using my favorite Corner Chomper, round the edges of the cards.

Next, trim your choice of embellishments to fit the width of the cute cards and apply!

These cards have a bit of a metallic sheen to them so using the Sharpie paint pen is a perfect choice.

    Like them on FB! Can I just add how excited I am about this line?! David Tutera is my absolute FAVORITE and card making is my second favorite ;) So psyched for this!!!!!!

  3. Karina says:

    So cute! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Carolina says:

    These are awesome! I think the kits also come with envelopes, which can come in handy for all kinds of things – but for weddings you can use the extra envelopes to put the tips for the DJ, Driver, Florist, etc. and have them sealed and labeled all ready to pass on to whoever is in charge of all of that! :)

  5. Beth D says:

    I watch all of David Tuteras’ shows; he is such an inspiration! Although I thought to limit my DIY for my daughters’ Brooklyn Botanical Garden wedding 9/21/13, I do think I should make the escort cards! What fun it will be to turn his tutorial into a “Downtown Abbey” style for my daughters’ special, special day!

  6. Christy says:

    I just became engaged last night!! I’ve been reading your blog for about a year now though, so my now fiance is just catching up ;) I think this would be a great start to our journey of wedding planning!
