Tent Topper Cards

After seeing loads of lovely 'tent topper' cards I decided I would give it a go myself. After getting some guidance and sizes from my friend Ruth, (thank you Ruth!) here is my creation. The card is 4.25" square with the fold at the top to make a tent shape then you add the topper. The card fits into a standard C6 envelope as long as you don't make the topper too big! I have made this card quite siimple for my first try. The topper part is 'Gift Bear' stamped and coloured with watercolour pencils, punched out and then mounted to another circle with 3D foam pads plus a scallop circle. The message is made using my Karen Foster Snap Stamps.. I can't believe that KF has discontinued these! Especially when I didn't manage to to get the small casual set that I wanted! News on the grapevine is that KF are going to make some more of these for 2008 as they have grown increasingly popular :0) (Someone has just spotted that I missed the 'h' out of birthday in the sentiment! Ooops! I will get that sorted!)
