Tent Card

Hiya, hope everyone's had a lovely Easter and enjoyed the long weekend. Haven't really had much time for crafting the last few days with the boys being off school. We've managed a couple of days out so far and had a lovely day out with my mum and dad and 3 neices yesterday to a local farm. The weather held out thankfully, altho it was a bit windy, we did manage to sit and have a picnic and the kids had a good run around so were knackered when we got back......

It's my middle niece's birthday this weekend (can't believe she's 9 this year, don't where time goes anymore!) so I thought I'd share the card I've made for her. I wanted to have a go at something a bit different for her and tried my hand at a tent card. I've seen the tutorials and basically followed them, altho I made my card with one piece of card rather than 3. I just folded it in half and scored 1/2 an inch either side of that fold and then folded it accordingly. It's turned out okay and it stands upright which is the main thing...!! LOL

I used a jump ring to secure the image but because I didn't measure my circle before I drew it out, I didn't realise until I went to put it all together that Tilda is slightly bigger than the circle and kept catching on the bottom so I've stuck her down at her feet.

I absolutely love these new release Tildas and can't wait to use the rest of them. Fairytale Tilda is soooo gorgeous with her little frog and Pirate Tilda is lurrvely too. How on earth they continue to create such gorgeous images is totally beyond me... If you haven't seen them yet, check them out here at Simon Says Stamp where they are available to pre-order.

  • DP - My Minds Eye - Pretty Please
  • Image - "Wish Granted" Tilda from Magnolia
  • Sentiment - PC Generated
  • Medium - Prisma pencils and sansodor
  • Letters - Can't remember who makes them but i bought them from The Range
  • Pearls - Ebay
  • Flowers - Xcut Flower punch
I'm in the middle of making a card for my niece from my mum and dad and I'll be back to post that soon - I've put the card together, just waiting for the "Me and my pony" stamp from Lilli of the Valley - Lottie loves anything horse related and she was so excited yesterday when she knew there were horses and donkeys at the farm, bless her!.
