Toile tent cards

German Phrase of the Day: Der Kuchen schmeckt zu suss. = The cake is too sweet.

I made these cards the other day for StamperSharon's dirty challenge, making a toile card! Since I had also just looked at the sketch challenge to make one of Michelle Wooderson's tent cards, so I figured I would combine the two. I think the design could use some work, but overall I'm happy with it.

I decided since i was at it, I'd make 4, showcasing some of the new In Colors...which I just LOVE!!! The first 2 use Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi, the 2nd 2 Blue Bayou and Soft Sky. And don't you love the combination of the ticket corner punch with the scalloped square punch? I think it looks so cool...the perfect place for a brad! Oh...the card base itself is 4.25" square...the tent part makes it 5.5" tall.

I didn't get any of yesterdays challenges maybe I'll get a few from yesterday and today done tonight. Otherwise, I'll just have to play over the weekend!

  4. Jana, thank you for explaining about the size. It was exactly what I was thinking, and then you explained it. I was trying to figure out how you would get that card into an envelope. I love your cards, tres beautiful.
