This card was made for the Splitcoaststampers.com Wednesday Sketch Challenge. It was to make a tent topper card. It is 4.25x4.25 with the top extending another inch. The top could be any shape, square, circle, oval or anything. I chose to do a simple one, I've never made one before. I loved making this, what a fun layout! I did four layers on the topper, with dimentionals between two of them, and the vanilla were stamped with the sanded background. The top on was then stamped with the sentiment, they were all distressed and sponged with mellow moss. I then wrapped it in the red hemp and mounted it on dimentionals. I then make the flower, rock and rolled the ruby red with chocolate chip marker, and cut it out and popped it up on a dimentional and a bit of Dotto on the stem. The base of the card is using Outlaw SU designer papers. I started with the striped layer, used the small punch to start the brads, and put those in. Then I put on the cranberry stitched ribbon. I stamped happy in ruby red and always artichoke on the twill tape and adhered it. Then I fastened the papers onto the artichoke card base. Then I inked up the paisly stamp with markers and stamped on vanilla. I cut it out and adhered it to ruby red CS, then cut that out and stuck it on with dimentionals. Then I mounted the topper onto the card, and walla, it was done. I fussed for a while with some large decorator brads, but finally decided it would do better without anything else. I'm really happy with the result and can't wait to try another tent topper card sometime!
