Easter Tent Card

Hope everyone is well, I have had such a busy enjoyable day today and loved every minute of it.  Nothing better than being busy.  And tonight I have this gorgeous tent card I found on Splitcoast Stampers, great site to visit for lots of tutorials and inspirational pictures.  This is the first time I have made a tent card and I really loved it.
 How cute is the front of this card.
 Side view from one angle and....
Side view from another angle.  I will definately be making more, lol.
Some quick instructions:
Piece of card:  4 1/4" x 8 1/2"  scored in half at 4 1/4"
Piece of same colour card:  4 1/4" x 4" (stand)  scored 1", 2", 3" on the 4" side
Two pieces of 4" square dsp
Adhere one piece of dsp to card front and using your circle scissors or nestabilities cut a window.  Cut a piece a little bigger than your shape to make a frame.  You can put whatever you want on the front of the card, ocean scene, bush etc, I've used grass, just by cutting little strips with my scissors.
Stamp and cut out an image and adhere or suspend with cotton depending on what look you want.  Adhere the other piece of dsp to the inside of the card and add another shape to the back of the card, basically decorate before putting your card together.
Take your 4 1/4" x 4" and fold on score lines - center fold has to go up and the two outside folds need to be facing down, adhere to the inside of the card to get your stand.  If you ever need more instructions or would like me to do a picture tutorial just let me know.
Stamp set:  Everybunny
Card:  Whisper white, dsp - soft subtles, certainly celery and marina mist
Ink:  Chocolate chip and watercolour pencils
Acc:  Rhinestones
Tools:  Big shot, nestabilities, modern label punch and word window punch.
