How to Make a Shoe-Shaped Invitation

I found two articles that teaches us how to make shoe invitations. The first one is a shoe model placed on a card while the other one, using the same template that was used with the first card, was made into a shoe-shaped card. The first one looks like the one on the right. (Source: Making Greeting Cards)

rose pink color cardstock
white cardstock
tan or gold color cardstock
tiny pink and white ribbon
pink, tan, and black color markers
red color pencil
foam tape
decorative scissors
bone folder 

1. Cut out the different pieces from the shoe template.
2. Scribble markers on a palette.
3. Wet brush and pick up each color.
4. Paint the different shoe parts.
5. Score and fold the heel part (refer to the shoe pattern or the shoe card picture on this page.)
6. Use a burnisher to rub on the back of the cutouts to form it.
7. Assemble on a small piece of scrap card with glue and foam tape.
8. Use a red color pencil to fill in the stitches.
9. Glue on the tiny pink ribbon on the front of the shoe.
10. Trim the scrap card around the assembled shoe.
11. Trim white cardstock with decorative scissors.
12. Layer white cardstock to tan/gold card. Then attach to the rose pink blank basic card.
13. Use foam tape and attach the shoe onto the white card.
14. Glue 2 white ribbon to the shoe and form a loose knot.
15. Apply a dab of glue to the knotted area and stick to the card.
16. Glue beads to card. (Note: The beads can be sewed in before step 12.) 

The second one is the shoe-shaped card here on the left. (Source: The Blog that Spike Built). Using the same template he modified it a bit to make a shoe-shaped invitation.
