A tent card for Wild Orchid Challenge

Monday again already yuk!  I’m a real  hate Mondays kind of girl lol. 

Warning – picture overload today!!  It’s Wild Orchid Challenge time again, and this time the challenge is to make a Tent Card.  Really love this style of card, they are so quick and easy to make too.  Here is a link to a tutorial that our Dena did a while back for JM in case you want to give it a whirl especially as there are two prizes up for grabs this time!  Lili of the Valley are sponsoring a £10 voucher to spend in store and Wild Orchid Crafts have put up a yummy package chock full of flowers.

I am still loving the Grand Nesties that I eventually broke down and got a couple of weeks ago so I went with a round tent card.  I thought it would be real fiddly to do the step part on the inside but it wasn’t at all.  I just had to make that part a lot narrower.  Of course you will have spied those GORGEOUS new Thimbles n Threads papers from Nitwit Collections that I had to use as soon as I downloaded them, I am so going to wear this kit out I tell ya lol.  Totally delish!

The little heart on the inside  is printed from the kit, then I just stamped a LOTV clear Additions sentiment on to it and popped it on the inside.

And I used Maisie Two Balloons from Lili of the Valley, how cute is she!!  Copics used are:
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
Hair: E29, E25, E50
Clothes and balloons: R21, R30, R00, R0000

I applied Glossy Accents to the balloons but it’s not showing up in the pics.

The silk ribbon and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts natch – I used Trellis rose, 20mm roses, 10mm roses, poppies, gladioli stem flowers

A side view of the card so you can see the workings

And then I made a little pocket and a tag for the back so there is somewhere to write a sentiment on.
