Remember a few month back, SCS Technique Lover challenge was to create a tent card. That was such a cute idea, I thought it would be nice to have a tutorial for it in our resource section. So that’s the tutorial I wrote for Splitcoast today.

For my image I picked The Cat’s Pajama’s new set called A Whale of a Time. I stamped the cute big guy in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the new Xpress it paper from Copic. I received a few sheets at CHA and can’t wait to order more. It blends as well as the Neenah cardstock, but the ink doesn’t feather as much. Good stuff!

The whale was colored with Copic Markers (N0, N1, N3, N5, BG11, BG13, E01) and cut out. I saw Leigh O’Brien add little spots of texture on the bottom of the whale and I thought that was a cute idea. I totally cased that from her. To add those little dots, just hold your Blender Pen down a bit. The clear solution of the pen will “push” the colored ink away….leaving small white dots. For more texture tips with Copic Markers check this tutorial on SCS.


My card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock folded in half. A 4″ square of Seaside October Afternoon paper (my 1/2 stack is almost gone….I need it to be available in stores so I can get more!!!) was stitched to the card front and a window was cut with Classic Circle Nestabilities. Next I cut and embossed  a frame with Circle Nestabilities and adhered it over my window. Waves were cut with the new Wave CutUps die out of Seaside October Afternoon paper, then cut to match my window and adhered to the lower part of the frame. My sweet Whale was taped in between my waves.

The sentiment is from the same set. It was stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities. The inner part of the die cut was colored with E01 and E00 Copic Markers. Lippy Red Kaisercraft Rhinestones finish off the card.

  1. Hi Beate – hope you are doing well! I have a silly question: While the tent cards are REALLY cute, I was wondering where one would write a message? Since the bottom is glued shut and all… Any ideas?

  2. Claudia, that’s a good question. When I sent those, I add my message on a sticky note on the back of the card.
    Hugs and smiles
