For my card tonight, I started with this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge, to make a tent card. I have NEVER made one of these, so it kinda kicked my butt. Two hours on a card makes me cranky, LOL! I do like what I did, but it was a PROCESS to get here.....let me tell you. I used Basic Grey card stock from SU, and some GORGEOUS Authentique Uncommon paper. I followed the SCS tutorial, found in the resources section, and cut out my base. I used the Simply Scalloped Medium Die-namics to make my scallops inside my window. My image is the GORGEOUS new a la mode Bundle of Baby. I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with Copics. I paper pieced her shirt, and the babies blanket, though. She was then cut out. My ribbon is some from Michael's, and I used some glitter dots I got from Gina K. The final step before putting it together was to cut out my sentiment using the Sweet Stack Label Die-namics.


Well, that is it for me for today! Be sure to head to Kim's for a list of designers participating in today's teasers. Thanks for stopping by! Also, be sure to go to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to check out my AWESOME teammates!!

Jenny said...

It's cute and I think worth the 2 hours you spent on it! Don't u just want to attach a little label to the back of these 'fussier' cards that lets the recipient know just how much time it took to make, so please don't pitch it in the trash next week or our friendship will be terminated!!!! lol

Wendy said...

What is wrong with 2 hrs on a card, that is my usual!!! ;)
