Hi Crafty Friends! Today, I am sharing a fun carnival tent card created with the adorable Country Carnival set! This card shape is perfect for an invitation as well!
To start, I cut a piece of white cardstock 6.6”W x 3.3”H. I scored vertical lines measuring from 1.65” from the left and right hand side of the cardstock. The two score lines will form the two front flaps. To make room for the triangle top, I made a vertical incision 0.3” from the top of the cardstock along each of the two score lines and trimmed horizontally across each of the front flaps.
For the top of the tent, I used a ruler and drew a triangle 4.3” W x 2”H on white cardstock and I fussy cut the triangle out. I repeated this using cardstock from the Heroic Halftones paper pack but shortened the height of the triangle to 1.8”H in order to have a border. I die cut cardstock from the Striped Silly paper pack using Icing Borders to make the bunting. I also used cardstock from the same paper pack to die cut the flag using the bunting piece from the Wonky Windows Die Set.
I cut two rectangles 1.65”W x 3”H out of the same cardstock from the Heroic Halftones paper pack and adhere it to the outside of the front flaps. For the tent curtains, I drew and fussy cut two triangular shapes out of the Striped Silly paper pack and white cardstock.
For the inside of the card, I inked the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. For the grass, I used Slimline Nature Borders and ink blended with Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. I mirror imaged stamped some of the cute bears. I colored the bears, ferris wheel, ticket booth, and popcorn cart with Copic markers from the Country Carnival set. I added some clouds and sun from Balloon Rides and white heat embossed the sentiments. I added a card wrap by white heat embossing balloons onto a strip of vellum 8.5″W x .9″H.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I wish you a crafty day!
