More Tent Topper Cards.....
After I have my Card Club, I sit with all the leftover supplies and make extras for my stash basket. I'm naming these Tent Topper cards so you'll know what I'm talking about. I posted a version of one of these a few posts down but used a rectangle topper. I thought a circle would be cute for some girly cards so I used my circle and scallop circle punches this time. The flower was stamped in SU! Pixie Pink on glossy paper which is super cute with this set. I then stamped the big polka dot in SU! Certainly Celery and punched a smaller circle out of it with my 5/8" punch. That was adhered with a dimensional. Cardstock is SU! Pixie Pink, Glossy White and Cool Caribbean. Patterned paper and Big Blossom stamp set are from the current SU! mini catalog. Sentiment is stamped on a strip of CC cardstock and has some piercing for some added detail. I LOVE making these cards! They remind me of place cards and I can just picture the recipient sitting one of these on display on her desk or kitchen table. Fun stuff here, you should try one and let me see!
Tip of the day: Will these fit into a regular envelope? Yep, they sure do!! I made sure when creating this design that it would still be mailable. So I cut the cardstock 4.25" x 8.5" so that when it's folded it makes a 4.25" square. The tent topper can be as big as you want and in any shape. The secret is this: when you adhere the topper portion, lay your card on top of an envelope (or lay on top of a ruler)and make sure it is adhered between the length of the envelope. Or less than 5.5". And if there are any A Muse fans out there, these would be adorable made up with their cute, patterned notecards
