Blast Off Tent card

 It's not that I've been dawdling - I am totally EXHAUSTED watching the Olympics!  I have been crazy with this set too- I've been dreaming cards with this and I am busy making samples with it - some for my stamping party I will share later. 

I made this card as a challenge to CC386 (color challenge- Primrose, Summer starfruit and Baja Breeze)  and CAS181 on splitcoast to make a tent card.  I changed the dimension to make a square 4 1/4 inch card with left over to make the "legs".  Cut a cardstock longways to make 2 4 1/4x 11 inch pieces.  cut to shorten to  8 1/2 inches and score into 1/2 at 4 1/4 inches.  Reserve the little piece left over.  I cut the center out with a circle cutter. Stamped the words in primrose on the cardstock, and then the rocket on white.  I stamped the fire in calypso coral and the little astronaut in baja blue then used blender pen to remove the ink from the face and used starfruit and primrose pen to color the face.  I then used 1 1/4 inch hole punch  using a scrap piece to make a circle, put it over the hol on the rocket to reverse mask the little guy into the window.  Punch some clouds using the cupcake punch with white and use dimensionals or gluedots to adhere.  I covered the inside using starfruit and then punched some more start fruit circles in 5/8 inch and 1" and sponged them with starfruit to make it look like a planet through the hole, added some bling to the rocket and really easy peasy card.

You will have2- 2 1/2 inch x 4 1/4 strip left over after cutting the card.  Score that strip 1/4 inch, 1 1/4, 2 1/4  along the 2 1/2 inch side and you will have the "legs" of the card. fold it to make a W and adhere sticky strip to the 1/4 inch sections and adhere to the front and back of the card as shown on the bottom of the card on the left.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
