With Carousel Horses
Tent cards are created by adding a folded cardstock insert at the base of the card (although sometimes they are constructed with a single long piece of cardstock) and by joining the top, front and back, to form a triangular, or tent, shape. The extra folding allows the card to stand open at the bottom creating depth and the illusion of three-dimensions. (It's not really as confusing as it sounds... trust me!)
1. Cut both pieces of A5 cardstock in half to form 4 pieces that will be approximately 6" x 4 1/4". One will form the front of the card, one will form the back of the card (set them both aside), one will be cut in half for the folded inserts and the last one you will use to make the "palings" and the decorative punched border.
2. Cut one of the 6" x 4 1/4" pieces in half again to form two long, thin pieces that will be approximately 6" x 2". Score and fold each piece in half longways. Score about 1/4" from each long edge and fold again as shown in the picture below. Set aside.
6. Run some double sided tape along the top and bottom of the card front and adhere your palings with rounded ends pointing up. Always start in the middle of the card and work out to either side for a more balanced result.
9. Decide which horse you want on the left hand side and adhere it to one of the folded pieces of cardstock as shown in the pictures below. I used some strong glue as well as a piece of tape to hold it in place.

These are the individual strawberries I used in front of the basket in the sidestep card. I also used them alone on the previous two cards I made, so they are quite versatile. Don't forget that you can resize them for whatever project you are doing, whether little gift tags or 12 x 12 scrapbook layouts.

I have a couple of other cards I want to make with this design before I neaten up the drawing and post it for you all to use. There are still a few older designs that I have on my desk waiting to be used, but I just felt in the mood to draw today and this is what I came up with. I love how the basket turned out so don't be surprised if you see a lot more of them in coming months!

Carmen requested some more bear designs and fortunately I have had this little guy waiting patiently in the wings to make his debut. This design would be perfect for Thank You cards and I'm Sorry cards, but also works for Birthdays, Congratulations, Get Well Soon or just blank greeting cards. He's quite an adaptable little fellow!

The design for this card is based on the latest Mojo Monday sketch.
