Join the challenge at Bitten By The Bug. This challenge is perfect because my grown children and their families love the outdoors so I have lots of papers and accents in this theme. While they camp out all the time, I prefer ending my hikes at the cabin where there is a hot shower and a soft bed, lol.
Here is my card open (the card holders on the sides are just to hold it open). I searched Pinterest for ideas on a pop-up tent card. The item that came up the most was a die set by Karen Burniston with lots of little details. Since I have my Cricut, I don’t tend to buy shaped dies like this because they are expensive and limited in their use. I looked at it and also some other sites that gave basic information on designing a pop-up element in both cards and books and came up with a design that works using only basic shapes. It should be in the Cricut Community in Design Space under 3d tent. I always like a challenge to see if I can translate what I am thinking into Design Space. I also used the cartridge Camp Out for the fire and logs. The paper for the tent and card base is from paper by Parkland called Wilderness. I used several different brads from Eyelet Outlet as decoration as well as some buttons from my stash. The sentiments and front of the card were from a Photoplay collection called Campfire.
Here is the front of the card.
And a top view.
Here are my prototypes. Practice cards are a good way to use the ugly paper you have and won’t use, lol. These brown roses just don’t get it for me.
Here is a second card I made using the same paper packs as the first plus Photoplay’s Lakeside. I used eyelets on the top of the tent instead of brads because I actually thought about doing it before gluing the tent together.
Join us for the challenge and add your own outdoor themed project made using your Cricut machine here. I hope you are all able to get outdoors and stay safe as we get through this time of COVID 19. – Denise
