Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 5 1/4 ” x 5 1/4 ” (13.5 cm x 13.5 cm).

Taking the white card stock make the tent fold card base. Find the blue coloured and checkered print design paper needed from the Young at Heart paper collection. Cut the blue (1.2 cm) smaller all around for the second matting layer. Distress the edges. 

Taking the white card stock, black archival ink, Young at Heart and Simply Classic stamps and matching dies stamp, colour and die cut the car, leaves and journey sentiment. The leaf branches are stamped and cut x 4. Apply green colour to only one of the leaf branches. This will be placed behind the tail end of the car later. 

Still using the white card stock, take the border die and cut x 3 borders. Trim the borders to fit behind the matting and two for the front card. 

The placement of the layers for the card: First being the blue paper matting adhering with the foam squares, the trimmed white borders adhered between the blue matting and the checkered matting also with foam squares. The two front boarder layers adhered with Dries Clear Adhesive then the car adhered with the foam squares. The sentiment adhered also with the foam squares to the top left of the card. 

The leaf branches are tucked behind the tail end of the car, between the border layers and behind the sentiment. To finish the card, apply the diamond stickles to the car, flowers, leaves, sentiment and the lace borders.
