Today I am on the blog to share with you a card with an awning. I have honestly never made an awning card before - it's a first for me! When I scoped around Pinterest for some ideas, I came across a beautiful wooden awning with wrought iron. So that was my inspiration for this card:
This card reminded me of the refreshment bars or bakeries alongside the beach or at a pool and wished I was there to enjoy a cool refreshment under an awning.
For this card I used archival ink to stamp my images on the iris paper provided in the kit. I then water colored my images and fussy cut them using scissors. I used window pocket die by Dress my craft to make the awning over the bar. I have used sheet from Sweet Treat Paper pack by Dress my craft for making awning. I took iris paper provided in the kit and used brick Brick Stencil by Tubby Craft to do that 3D- Brick embossing on the card. I then took a brown cardstock and die cut it and applied double sided foam tape to make a window of my bakery. I also used boarder punch to make the shelves of my bakery. I finished the card off with a few cup cakes on the shelves and the sentiment.
This card folds flat to fit into a regular A2 sized envelope. The awning springs right out once it’s out of the envelope. Sorry about the shadows, but it is an awning after all. Here’s a side view of the same card:
The nice thing about this card is that you can make a shoe store, and ice cream shop, a flower shop, etc.
