Tent Card by Sandie

Good morning, it's Sandie here and I would like to share a tutorial on how to make a Tent Card in 10 easy steps.

The materials needed to make this card are:
  • One 6 x 12" piece of cardstock
  • One 6" x 4" piece of cardstock for the card stand
  • Scoring board/tool
  • 12mm Double sided tape or other strong adhesive
  • Two 6" squares of patterned paper, trimmed down slightly. I've used Prima "Annalee"
  • Cuttlebug, or other die cut machine
  • Dies - Classic & Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. Romantic Swirls 2
  • Stamps - Ben & Nora, New Year Couple & Cheers to You sentiments
  • Flowers/embellishments
  • Butterfly punch
  • Stickles

    Step 1 - Score the  6 x 12" piece of cardstock at 6"  on the 12" side and fold in half. This is your card base.

    Step 2 - Adhere one of the 6x6" pieces of patterned paper to the front of the card. Then cut out a circle in the middle, using the classic circles nestabilities.

    Step 3 - To make a frame for around the circle, first cut out a scalloped circle in contrasting paper and then taking the same die that you used to cut out the circle on the card cut out the centre of the scalloped circle. {keep the circle as you will need it later} Adhere the frame to the front of the card.

    Step 4 -  Image. Stamp your image and colour it using your chosen medium. Once it is coloured to your liking trim it out cutting close to the image. I like to leave a slight white outline around the image.

    Step 5 - Embellish the front of your card adding flowers, swirls, etc.  At this point you can adhere the second 6x6" piece of patterned paper to the inside {this can also be done after the 'stand' has been adhered to the back of the card}.

    Step 6 - Stamp out the sentiment and cut out using circle nestabilites. Mount the sentiment on 3D foam dots.

    Step 7 - Score the 4" x 6" piece of cardstock at 1", 2" and 3" on the 4" side. Fold the score lines in mountain/valley style. The center fold has to go up (mountain), the two outer folds have to face down (valley). Apply double sided tape or other adhesive to the outer panels.

    Step 8 - Adhere the first fold of the folded cardstock at the bottom of the back of the card.

    Step 9 - Take the circle that you cut out from the contrasting scalloped circle and adhere it in the centre, lining it up with the window on the front of the card. Apply a strip of co-ordinating paper along the bottom to cover the white card. *hint - if you leave it until this point to adhere the 6x6" piece of patterned paper on the inside it will cover the white cardstock from the stand and the strip won't be necessary*

    Step 10 - Adhere the bottom of the card front to the fold of the card stand. This completes your tent card.

    I do hope you've enjoyed this tutorial. Have a wonderful day.
