SUO Challenge #149 – Weddings Are Here! Best Wishes Patricia!

Wedding Tunnel Card, front
Wedding Tunnel Card, inside
 My good friend got married for the first time at age 50.  I'm so happy for her!  The SUO Challenge is the perfect opportunity to showcase this card (make a wedding card).  I love tunnel cards.  They're easy and have a big WOW! factor. Pop over to SUO to check out the challenge.

set - Rose Wonder
cs - very vanilla, rose red
ink - rose red, marina mist, always artichoke and archival black pads
access - Simply Scoring tool, tear and tape, 2-1/2" circle punch, dimensionals

Tunnel card Directions:
  1. For a tall tunnel card use two half sheets, 8.5" x 5.5" each
  2. Score inside piece at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8"
  3. Punch a window in middle section
  4. line up the two pieces and stamp the inside image through the window
  5. Now score both pieces at 4.25"
  6. Stamp the inside outer-edge panels
  7. Stamp the front around the outside edges, and front main image on separate piece of vanilla.  Matt the front focal image on rose red cs. It will be adhered to the card front with dimensionals as the final step.
  8. Crease your folds on both pieces.
  9. The outside is simply folded like a standard A-2 card
  10. The inside piece is folded valley, mountain, valley and adhered with strong (tear and tape) adhesive to the card front (outer panels only) so the middle sticks out when it is opened. 
  11. Adhere your focal rose matted image to the card front with dimensionals.
I hope this makes sense!
 Happy Stamping!  Mary
