Tent Topper Card Tutorial

Hi, this is Sherry. Today I am going to show you how I made this Tent Topper Card using the Diva Chef from Rubber Romance. It's just as easy as a regular A2 size card, but it's fun and just a little something extra.

The supplies you will need are very basic:
4.25" x 8.5" piece of card stock
Patterned Paper and Scraps of CS for decorating and embellishing the front of your card.
Rubber Romance Diva Chef (or Rubber Romance image of choice)
Foam Tape (optional)

First, you take your 4.25" x 8.5" card stock and score it at 4.25" to make a 4.25" square base for your card.
Next, trim your patterned paper and decorate the front of your card as desired. For my card I used Basic Grey Lemonade patterned paper and the Fiskars Threaded Water Border Punch.

I layered my pieces and added some ribbon.
Next, I colored and cut out my Diva Chef image. Here I used my Circle Nestabilities to layer card stock with the image. The image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Odorless Mineral Spirits.
Once your image is ready, attach adhesive to the LOWER half of the image panel, on the back. I used foam tape to give it added dimension, but any adhesive will work also. Now it's time to attach the main image to your card. The image will go over the edge to make the card 5.5" tall-and it will fit in a regular A2 envelope.

Once everything is put together, this is what the finished product looks like

That's all for today- Have a great day and I hope you are inspired to try something different.
