TLC275~Let's Go Camping!~ 5/31/10
Happy Memorial Day!

I'm stepping in for Holly today as she and her sweetie of 28 years take a little R&R!
Happy Anniversary!!http://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/inlove.gif

Now, we're not really going camping, silly!

I happened across this technique on Dena's blog, as part of the Simon Says Challenges, for a Tent Card and thought it would be fun to try!

Please remember when you upload to use KEYWORD TLC275 (no spaces)

For the entire TLC275 gallery, see HERE.

here's my sample
*edited late* I didn't cut 2 pieces like the tute, just folded my card as usual.

This looks interesting. I can't get to it today as we are going to visit our DIL as she recoveres from her kidney donor surgery, improving each day. But I am going to give this one a try.
Love the slide show on your blog too!

Fun challenge, Dawn. I have never made one of these cards, but it was fun and creates a cute, interesting card! I will need a card for an upcoming June birthday so I decided this would be a perfect card to make.

Thanks for giving Holly the day off. I really enjoyed your challenge. Thanks!

Here's my card -- Hanging Birdcage

I just loaded this tent card last night for the Crazy 4 challenges challenge so thought I'd link it here. I'll try to find some time today to do another one!! It was so fun:

Very nice! I'm too worn out from yesterday to join in, but I'm not too tired to admire everyone's work!! Have a great day.

Cook22 05-31-2010 08:00 AM

Not a Cage
I need to give a LOT more thought about how best to use this card format, but I always like learning a new fold, so thank you, Dawn :D.

Biggan 05-31-2010 09:19 AM

Thanks Dawn for this awesame foldning! Love it! Here´s my card;



imastampin 05-31-2010 09:19 AM

Dawn, thanks for the fun challenge. I had never made a card like this before. I will definitely do it again.

Here is my card of gratitude for all those who have served and are now serving our country.


bensarmom 05-31-2010 09:26 AM

What a fun card to make Dawn. I had a great time making mine. Mine is a 4 1/2" card called tent card bensarmom. Thanks Dawn and happy Memorial Day. We're getting thunderstorms..........but will cook out when they have moved through.

cher2008 05-31-2010 09:36 AM

Thank you for todays super fun challene!

Here is my card :)

LilLuvsStampin 05-31-2010 10:53 AM

What a great challenge, Dawn!

Here's my Make a Joyful Noise.

Beate 05-31-2010 12:12 PM

What a great challenge, Dawn. Thanks so much! I had a blast creating my little scene.

Thinking of Hoo

Happy Memorial Day!
Hugs and smiles

This was a fun card to make. I couldn't figure out from the tutorial how the card was closed at the top but when I was working on it, realized that it doesn't close at the top, it just naturally falls together there. This card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2.....hope I can find an envelope for it. I needed a birthday card for my friend's DH and he is a golfer so here is my Golfer Card.

UnderstandBlue 05-31-2010 02:06 PM

What a hoot! Loved it - this is the first one I've ever done!

Here's my little tent!

This took me forever and by the end I wasn't having any fun. The stamping part was easy, even making the bird wasn't too bad, but engineering how his wings were going to be 3D and fold down flat for mailing was murder, all this while trying to dangle the thing by threads. I can tell you the strings were around the poor things throat a few times and I even uttered flock off to the poor creature. I made it for our closest friends silver anniversary and I must say I'm very happy with it. LOVE BIRD

Fun challenge. I loved learning this technique.


Thanks for looking.

It was a great challenge Dawn! I had to save it for posting on Sunday for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge and also used the card to give to my daughter on her graduation day, but it did give me the inspiration I needed to get that card done!

kellybee 06-12-2010 08:19 AM

This was a super challenge - I haven't done one in ages and I thought a tent card was going to be hard to do but they're easy and great looking! I'll be making one of these again for sure. Here's my "entry":
