Pumpkin Tent Card

Sorry, I'm behind! We started school yesterday and all 5 kids are in this year. So I have 2 kindergarteners, a 2nd grader, a 6th grader and an 11th grader. I hope to still post as often but forgive me if I get behind once in a while .


So I tried the color challenge on SCS today and I did not like my results. So I decided I would work on a design for my next weeks Stamp Night. It is so cold and windy today that I decided a fall card would be nice. This is a tent card. The card base is a 4.25" x 8.5" folded in half. The topper is positioned just high enough to reach the 5.5" to make it the size of a regular invitation sized card. I started by stamping the bottom center pumpkin and masking it and adding the side ones. The topper I started with the gourd, masked it, stamped the large pumpkin, masked that and the stamped the small pumpkin. I watercolored with re-inkers and an Aqua pen. I tied the ribbon on and decided it still needed more so I added the eyelets. (Have I said I love the Crop-a-dile!)

  1. I love this card and the color combo. The ribbon in the center with the eyelets really sets it off.


Thanks for stopping and taking time to leave a comment!!
