Tent Fold

February 17th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Tent Fold

I was intrigued by last week’s Let’s Go Camping demo challenge on SCS, and decided to try making a card with that cool card fold (aka tent fold). First I made one out of copy paper, and when I had the folding down, I started out with an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Bordering Blue card stock.

The pink flowers on the Bella Birds Designer Series Paper reminded me of the Botanical Blooms Sale-A-Bration set. I tucked a pieced of punched Whisper White card stock under the bottom edge of the DSP. Love that new eyelet border punch! I stamped the flower with Pink Pirouette ink and the leaves and sentiment with Bordering Blue ink on a 2-1/8″ x 2-1/8″ Whisper White square that was matted with textured Pink Piroutte card stock.

To keep the card closed (you have to unfold it to write/read the message inside), I clipped on a 1/2″ silver library clip. It works great as a functional embellishment on this card!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh, this is a neat fold and a beautiful card, Vera! I just love the lace punch with this set and paper – a gorgeous combination all around.
    Much thanks for your comment and for keeping me straight on the dates. :D
