Love To Camp Card

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you are all doing well :) I haven't had much time to play with one of my newest carts, Campin' Critters, so I pulled it out today and oh my gosh, is it awesome! I so love it. It might have shot to my favorite spot, which pretty much changes daily :P

I decided to create another Father's Day card with this cart. I have had requests to make a couple of Father's Day cards for others, but this one is for my Dad. We camped all summer, every summer when I was growing up. We started in a little pop-up tent, moved to a pop-up camper, then a pull-behind camper, then a bigger one. Now my parents have their "vacation home" a super-nice RV. But it all started out in a tent, which was the inspiration for this project. I have wanted to make this 3D tent since I got the cart, but haven't had time. Father's Day was the perfect opportunity.
You are supposed to glue the top of the tent to the bottom, but I decided to make this a gift holder instead. I don't know what I'm going to fill it with yet, candy or something, but it makes such a cute package!
I made an accordion card to accompany the tent. I used papers from My Mind's Eye and the rest from  my stash. There are so many awesome images and signs on this cart, I had a hard time deciding which ones to use.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
  • Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #17 - Father's Day
  • Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #1 - Decoration for Father's Day
  • Scrapalicious USA Challenge #6 - Accordion technique
There are still no updates on the missing student. "America's Most Wanted" will be airing a segment about her tomorrow night (6/11/11) if you are interested. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT weekend :)

  18. You have just inspired me to make my dad a camping card. Some of my favorite memories growing up are from around our campfire. Now, I wish I had that cart to use. Have to see if I can borrow it from my friend next Friday.

  21. Hi Lisa!

    Cute! That cartridge looks like so much fun! I love the tent idea and I'm certain your dad will love this card! I did a lot of camping growing up too. There's something so relaxing about sleeping in a tent, even now. Well, that is until morning comes and I'm sore from sleeping on the ground! lol

    Hope all is well. I didn't get a chance to see AMW but hopefully with national media taking the story more tips will come in.

    Have a great Sunday! :)

  31. So in my excitement about your project yesterday, I TOTALLY missed that you entered this at DTC too!! THANK YOU!! :) I love your project as much today (maybe even a wee bit more!!)... I was actually thinking last night what a cute gift box this would make for my friends who just purchased a new-to-them RV!! They've been camping in a tent until now and I thought it would be so funny for them to have a little tent 'reminder' :)

    Thanks so much for linking up at the Decorate To Celebrate! Challenge Blog!

  34. Lisa,
    Once again, you have done a fabulous job. I like how you kept the tent for a gift box and the embossing on the flaps is great. I need to use more embossing on projects. Great accordion card, too. I love the images you used!
    Hopped over from DTC. Already a follower.
