Crafter's Companion 2022 Advent Calendar Day #3 Tent fold with hanging panel

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

Then there were three. Today I made a tent fold card with a hanging panel with the contents of door #3. I have heard this card called many different names, tent pop out, frame tent card etc. They are all made the same. You use a die to cut an opening in the card base then put a panel in the inside that hangs free when the card is open.

There is a SVG below for a card of simular style. This one has a rounded corned rectangle opening. It has 2 greeting one Winter Wishes and the other is Happy Birthday.
