Your turn to shine shaped card

What a fun little card I have for you today. I was flipping through Creating Keepsakes June 2009 issue yesterday when I saw an add for Melissa Francis. It was a scrapbook page with a giant circus tent on it and I thought "hey I have the new stamp set "Showtime" from The Greeting Farm that's perfect for a this. I think I'll make a tent card". And well here you go, my version of that inspiration.

Aren't the pattern papers cute?? I just love them!! They are the new line of papers from The Greeting Farm called "Sunny Glen" paper pack. They are a double sided 6x6 pack of paper (48 sheets in total). You have to check them out for yourself!!


Just incase you love it to and want to make it yourself I made a *template for you!!

*Just so you know I made this card on a sheet of 12x12 cardstock, but the template is made to fit on an 8.5x11 sheet. I don't know about you but I don't have a giant printer and wouldn't be able to print anything larger than letter size (8.5x11). Sorry it's not to scale of my original card.


Here's my template file.
Enjoy
Supplies:
Showtime stamps-The Greeting Farm
Sunny Glen paper pack-The Greeting Farm
Pantone/Prisma markers
