Happy 1st Birthday - SNSDC42

This week we have an extra fun challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog.  If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know I love fancy fold cards.  Well, this week's challenge is to make a tent card.  This was the first one I've made but it definitely won't be the last.  I'm hooked.  You can find a very easy to follow Tent Fold Card Tutorial over at SCS.

I love this adorable puppy from the Puppy Love digi set. I colored him with copics before fussy cutting him and adding him to the corner of my card with pop dots.  I used a glaze pen to make his nose look shiny & wet.

I used a spellbinders circle die to make some balloons for the opposite corner.  A sentiment from the Masculine Birthday Greetings digi set completed my bunch of balloons.  After knotting my baker's twine strings, I used a small glue dot behind the knot to keep them in place on the card.

I really like the way a tent card will stand up all by itself.  Since this card doesn't open, I will attach a circle journaling block to the back of the card to write the message for the recipient.

Cardstock: Bazzill (red), Georgia Pacific (white)
Patterned Paper:  Echo Park (Little Boy)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy (Puppy Love, Masculine Birthday Greetings digital stamp sets)
Embellishments/Tools:  Thickers (Smoothie-white), The Twinery Baker's Twine (maraschino, honeydew, denim, buttercream, mandarin), Saura glaze pen, Spellbinders (circle - large & small)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Paper Sundae #108 - Birthday card
Catered Crop - Use red
Going Grey with Scrap Creations (GGSC102) - Critter
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge (PWC194) - Use dies

I hope you'll join us this week and give one a try for yourself.  Don't forget to go by the blog and see what the tent cards the rest of the design team made.  You're in for a treat!

Thanks for stopping by today.
