Bring on the Cake

I have wanted to do a circus tent type of card since I first saw this image in the preview of the Occasions Mini.  This is my second attempt and it’s still not quite what I imagined but I’m going to go with it!

It’s a 3 x 6 card with the “awning” hanging over just a bit.  It still fits in the small open ended envelope.  The awning is the Word Window punch but instead of letting it “flap” out (these are all technical terms!) I adhered the front end down with two layers of foam tape so that the banner would fit. 

The banner is on a lollipop stick that I cut down to fit.  I used Crystal Effects to adhere the stick  at the bottom and a Dimensional to stick the banner to the top.

The opening to the tent is the Decorative Label punch. 

Stamp set – Bring on the Cake
card stock – Real Red, Whisper White
Ink – Jet Black Stazon, Crumb Cake (sponging on tent opening)
Stampin’ Write Markers – Blush Blossom, Real Red
Ect – 1/8 Real Red ribbon, Decorative label punch, 3/4 square punch (ends of banner),Word Window punch, lollipop stick, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals

I’ll keep working on it!  Enjoy – Hugs, Fran
