C4C446 tent pop-up

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. Since it's a new month we also have a new Hostess and Guest Designer! Our August hostess is Anja de Regt, and our guest designer is Connie VanLoosen.

Anja's challenge this week is:  "The First of August is National Mountain Climbing Day. Not that I climb many real big mountains, but mountains are beautiful! So for this week the challenge is to put some mountains on your card/project."

I had purchased this (second hand) embossing folder and realized how perfect it was for the challenge, so pulled it out to use for my card. I've had the camping stamps for awhile so got those out as well. They were already coloured - I take stamped images with me when we go to the farm as there  is no TV or internet there. I love to sit at the farmhouse table and colour late in the evenings.

I couldn't resist adding a little peeking bear from Karen Burniston's Winter Animals, and the 'hello' from Word Set 6 Summer.

While the card was fine as it was, I decided to make it a Pop-Up!

I used the Tent Pop-Up, which is so fun. We live close to the Rocky Mountains and know A LOT of people camp in tents on those mountains.

I added three more bears, this time black bears, each holding a die cut letter to finish the sentiment "wishing you summer fun". While there isn't a Wishing die, I combined words from Word Set 2 Birthday for the 'wish' and Word Set 1 Greetings for the 'ing'. The words were die cut from black card stock then outlined with a white gel pen.

I added a couple of embellishments from the Camping Charms and also used the Crosshatch Squares as an area for our message.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C446.
