I thought it would be fun to add some 3D dimension to your cards, they are fun to receive and also make.

The products I used are:

To make the 3D tent card I used a silhouette cutting machine, however this can be done without an electronic cutting machine. I used some Black Plain Card 250gsm for the card. It is easier to make the card front before putting the card together.

I stamped my images onto some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and coloured them in with alcohol markers. This card is fantastic for using alcohol markers as they will not bleed. I then cut all my images out and put them aside. You will then need to get some white paint ( I used watercolour paint and added the paint thickly) and splatter this onto your card front. Once this is dry I embossed the greeting with white embossing powder and placed the images onto the card. I used Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm and also added the sentiment along the bottom.

Once all your pieces are placed onto the card front you will then need to fold the card together and you will now have a 3D tent card! This was super fun to make and you can use any colour of card, they will all look great.
