Tent card

9:52 AM Edit This 2 Comments »
This was a challenge at SCS. I like this layout. It's a 4.25" square card base with a topper that extends up to 5.5" so that it still fits standard card size.
There was another card that used some dp I didn't have, but loved the colors together so I "made" my own. I started with Elegant Eggplant for card base. Then I scalloped a piece of Groovy Guava with a corner rounder and then punched 1/8" hole in the centers. On top of that is white cs with marker lines of barely banana, brilliant blue and elegant eggplant. Since there's no markers for the new "In colors", I added a few thin strips of Purely Pomegranate and Groovy Guava from scraps. I tied an Apricot ribbon around where they meet. For the topper, I used the Marvy Giga Scalloped Punch and Mega Circle Punch in Groovy Guava and Barely Banana. Punched 1/16" holes in those scallop centers. Stamped the big flower from Looks Like Spring on white cs in Groovy Guava and then rolled edges in Purely Pomegranate. Then I cut it out. Oh, how I wish there was a punch for this flower! : ) Center was too plain so I added a 1/2" circle sponged in Elegant Eggplant (so that it wasn't too dark) and attached with a Soft Subtles yellow brad. Adhered flower with dimentional and finished! I really like these colors together and wouldn't normally think of this combo. What do you think?
