Circus Mickey Monkey Tent Shape Card

Today is new release day for Digital Delights by Louby Loo and I made a tent shaped card using several digital files.


DD digital stamps used: Circus Mickey Monkey, Circus Tent and Party Hard Sentiment

Cardstock & Papers: Spectrum Noir Cardstock by Crafter's Companion, glitter Cardstock scraps

Markers: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

Color Palette

Tent: CR10, CR8, DR4, TB2, TB4, TB3, LY1, CT2, CT$
     Face: FS2, FS4, FS9
     Body: TN2, TN4, TN6, TN9
     Hat & Vest: CG#, CG4
     Balls: FL1, FL2, FL3, CG3

Acc. /Embellishments: Small star punch, small circle punch, 4 -  3/8 inch pearl beads.

Special Technique:

I imported the jpeg version of the tent into design space and saved it as a cut image.

 I put the cut version on the mat and sized it to about 5 by six inches. I then duplicated the shape, flipped one image horizontally, brought the two shapes together so they slightly overlapped, then welded them together. I added a score line down the middle.

I then uploaded the jpeg version of the tent again and saved it as a Print Then Cut Image. I put the Print Then Cut version of the tent on the mat and sized it to match the card. The sentiment was imported as a png, then attached to the front of the tent image. The monkey is a 2 3/4 inches tall Print Then Cut image.

Once the images were colored I embellished the tent with punched glitter shapes. The tent was glued to the front of the card and the monkey was attached to the tent with foam tape. I colored the pearl beads with SN markers then attached them to the tent above the monkey.

I love making shape cards! Give it a try! Thanks for stopping by.
