Aud Sentiments sponsored by Robyns Fetish

It's the second week  of our Christmas challenge at Aud Sentiments. For this fortnight challenge we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. The challenge is to create a card or project with a Christmas or Holiday sentiment.

I colored the image w/Copics and used papers from two different DCWV Christmas stacks. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart. I added a few pieces of bling to the mittens and scarf. The cardstock that I use for my cards sometimes doesn't want to hold the weight of the embellishments and mats so I decided to try making a tent card. I watched a couple of videos on line but they were much more complicated than need be. I simply cut the 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock in half to 4 1/4" x 11". After scoring it at 5 1/2" I cut a piece of  cardstock 4 1/4"  x  4" and scored it a 1", 2" and 3" . Fold it as valley, peak, valley. Add adhesive above the "valley" and attach to bottom of card. Super simple!
