Beach Tent Card

Good morning friends

Designer Challenge Teammate Frances Burne made a Tent Card using one of Karen Burniston's Accordion die sets, and I immediately had to make one as well. I am hooked, and have made several! It's taking awhile for me to get them posted here on my blog though.

My friend Sue and I used to pop something in the mail to each other on the first of each month, but with our move and the severity of my Rheumatism we had to put it on hold. Her life was crazy busy as well but we are both at a point now where we are able to start up again. This is the card I sent her for September 1st.

My first Tent Card (which I haven't shared yet) I did a little differently, leaving the oval piece attached in the centre rather than removing it for a large oval window. But for this one, I thought I would try it with the opening.

I added a bunch of stickers from a 12 x 12 scrapbook kit - ones I didn't think I'd use on a Pop-Up card. They worked perfectly for the Tent Card though!

Here is a side view ...

On the back I added a journal card from one of the patterned papers in the stack, stamping 'Life's a Beach'. I added Pan Pastels around it for a pop of yellow.

I had lot of fun with PanPastels on the envelope as well.

Thankfully, even though summer is nearing an end, she received her card when the weather was still hot and sunny.
