SNSDC42 Make a Tent Card

Hello and welcome to the SNSDC42 challenge. This week we're making tent cards and you can find a tutorial here if you accept the challenge and don't know how to make them. This was the first time I tried making one and it was fun! I paper pieced my digi image by printing it once on white card stock and a 2nd time on dsp from Pink Paislee. All of the dsp including the chipboard pieces are from the same Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection. I cut a frame using Spellbinders labels eighteen dies and adhered that to the front of the card, while the image is stamped on the inside.
If you play along with us, you don't have to use a SNSS digi image, but we love seeing them when you do! If you play along with our challenges all month, you could be the lucky winner of a nice prize from SNSS, so grab those stamps and papers and come play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Such a pretty card, Carol, I have tried making a tent card, Carol, but I'm sorry to say, mine didn't turn out very well. Yours, on the other hand, is beautifully done, looks like you didn't have a problem at all.

Carol, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card. That apple looks so gorgeous in that dp as does your frame. Your background paper is so very pretty. That whole collection is very rich looking. Normally I'm not that fond of chipboard, but these are super pretty.
You will "brighten" someone's day with this one, no doubt.

What a super creation with the chipboard. I love the apple paper pieced to match your frame. The flowers on the corner are a wonderful addition, too.
