Garden Wishes Tent Card Technique

This cool tent card starts out with a standard size card base of 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, but the scoring is a bit different. Instead of scoring it at 4 1/4″ score at 1 3/4″, 6″, 7″, and 8″. Use the dotted Curvy Die on the 1 3/4″ score end and cut the curve as close to the edge as possible. Make sure that the dots are towards the card base and the cut line is towards the edge of the card stock. Use a bone folder to crease the score lines. Stamp the greeting from the Garden Wishes onto the flap, above the dottie curve.

Choose one of the patterns from the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Papers. Cut one piece 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the inside of the card. Cut another 7/8″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the area right behind the glue tab on the front. This piece will show when the card is standing up.

Cut a piece of window sheet 4 1/8″ x 5 1/2″. Add Tear n Tape to both long edges. Line up the window sheet with the sides of the card, under the dotted flap and adhere. Close the card leaving the bottom tab open flat, then fold the flap over onto the adhesive to attach the window sheet to the bottom tab.

Stamp the large dandelion and bee from the Garden Wishes stamp set onto a piece of white card stock using Tuxedo Black ink. Color with Stampin’ Blends: Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow, and Seaside Spray for the bee’s wings. Cut with the matching Dandy Wishes Dies and adhere the dandelion with liquid glue and the bee with a dimensional.

This version uses another greeting from the Garden Wishes set and Misty Moonlight card stock for the card base.

For this card, I added some leaves and another dandelion to the inside folds on the card. The card base is Bumblebee and the greeting is also from the Garden Wishes set.
