Instructions: This completed hinged tent fold card measures 6 1/2 x 6 1/2" (16.5cm x 16.5cm).
With the Sheena Douglas stamping card make the tent fold card base to the above measurements. Taking the Grasshopper ink and a dauber or a foam-inking tool and ink the card front edges. Find the paper in the paper collection that is 12x12 (30cm x 30cm), a scene of a blue sky, pine trees and mountains in it. Trim the paper to 6 x 6" (15.2cm x 15.2cm) so you still have the trees and mountains in it. Taking the Grasshopper ink, ink the edges of this paper the same as the card front. Adhere this paper layer to the card front with glue or double-sided tape.
The list of stamping (Library Green ink) and die cutting used for this card from the Wild Wilderness Create a ’scape collection sets: 3x the lake and jumping trout scene, 2x the rock and plant boarder and 4x the bulrush border from the Trout Lake sets. 2x the rabbits and 1x the fox from the Nature sets.
The sentiment is from the Ornamental tags die set. This is die cut x4 from the white card, adhere the layers together then inked with both the ocean blue and the grasshopper inks. Apply a layer of crystal clear, set aside to dry. When dry wrap the card with 3 lengths of string (x4 lengths of the card), thread the sentiment in to the string then tie a bow.
The detailed images are colored using the Zig markers. Apply to the harmony inks to give more depth to the trees, borders and the water.
The sentiment, rabbits, the fox and the front pine trees are finished with an application of crystal clear so they will pop when adhered to the card. The Trout is finished both with diamond stickles and the crystal clear.
Adhere all the elements in place, starting with the Lake. The first layer: Die cut out the trout and the rocks. Then the scene is cut in 1/2 and adhered to the card so there is a gap in the center of the scene. The second layer: Die cut the trees away and the lake. Adhere in place so the gap is covered. Layer the trees as seen on the card photo. Use the double dots to adhere the trout and rocks in place on the lake. With the double dots also adhere the lake in place. Adhere the bulrushes in place, trimming away what is not needed and adding to fill the gaps to each side of the lake. Adhere the rock and grass borders in place at the foot of the card. Adhere the rabbits and the fox in place. Using the Flower Shaping stylus as needed to give life to the elements.
To finish the card apply the diamond stickles to the flowers, bulrushes and to the mountaintops.
