Tonight it was late when I finally got a chance to sit down at my craft table. I had no idea what I was going to do, other than I wanted to use this adorable little smiley bee that I had colored last weekend.
I've been seeing these "tent topper" cards on some of the blogs and decided to give it a try. I had no dimensions or instructions, so just improvised. Next time, I will make the bottom a smidg taller. This one is 4-1/4 x 3-3/4". The image piece is 2-1/2 x 3". My cardstock is Stampin' Up! Marigold Morning and Chocolate Chip.
I created my own background paper using the summer words template from The Stamp Shack. It's a pdf file and I just printed it directly onto my patterned paper. This paper had the little suns and I added the centers with a small circle stamp and close to cocoa ink. The flower is an EK Success punch that I put through the Cuttlebug using the mesh embossing folder. The center is a 1/2 circle punch from the background paper...with a brown brad. (attached with a dimensional)
If you like this card design, you may want to search "tent topper" on Splitcoaststampers and you will be surprised at all the clever and creative cards!
Thanks for stopping by! Smiles, Pam :)
