DOstamper STARS - #105 - Tent Fold Card

Happy Thursday.  Time again for another DOstamper STARS Challenge.  This week we have a Color My World challenge.

Today I featuring these cute pumpkins just in time for Halloween.  How can it be the end of October already?  We are getting ready for trick-or-treating at my house.  My 6 year old son is going to dress up as Batman and my 4 year old son will be Spiderman.  They are too excited.

Today's card is made using the Tent Fold technique.  Here are the measurements for making this card base.

1.  Start with a card base cut 4 1/4" x 8 1/2"
2.  Score at 4 1/4"
3.  Fold in half on the score line.
4.  Cut a second piece measuring 3 1/4" x 4 1/2".
5.  Using the piece cut in Step 4, apply adhesive to the lower half of the layer attach to the card base.  Tip:  When adhering this layer to the card base, check that the overall height of the card does not exceed 5 1/2".  This will allow the card to fit in a standard envelope.

I cut out the small pumpkin using the Fun Fall Framelits and embossed the Bermuda Bay layer using the Polka Dots TIEF.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Find even more inspiration from my fellow STARS.
