I’m calling this one a Tent Card. It’s also really easy to make. For the “tent” base cut one piece of paper 4 1/4″ x 4 3/4″. Fold it in half so you get a folded piece that’s 4 3/4″ x 2 1/8″. For the stand up part I cut a piece of paper 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. Stamp or embellish whatever you’d like on it. I used the stamp set Hey Cupcake. All the words are separate so you can stack them, put them in a line, or skew them like I did for this card. When you’re done, just adhere the bottom 1/3 of the embellished piece to the folded tent piece and stand up. You can unfold the tent piece and write inside. This would also make great place holders for a wedding party! Or if you’re having a dinner party, try printing out the menu and attaching it to the folded tent piece.
