This card is another new shape for me:
There's a great tutorial for making a teepee (or tepee, it can be spelt both ways) card here. And this is how the card looks when it's flat - ready for posting:
It was a fun card to make, although at almost the last stage I stuck the die cut image on a bit askew and ultra sticky DST is impossible to peel off :( Still, it was a just little tryout and next time I'll know to take more care!
The image is a LOTV one which I coloured using watercolours on holiday and at home I die cut it using a Labels 8 Nestie and stuck a teeny little pompom on for his tail.
The background papers are from a Picnic in the Park paper stack (free with a magazine), sentiment by Craftwork Cards and the green organza ribbon came from my stash. The white daisy had a clear sparkly gem on which I replaced with a gold one to tone better with the daisies in the background paper and the sentiment.
TIP: The tutorial show all layers of the card being punched through for the ribbon in one go. I managed this after resorting to a very old spring loaded single hole punch (whoops, it kinda followed me when I left my last job, but I figured it had been my faithful companion for more years than I recall). Having thought about it, I'd be tempted another time to punch the flap that you fold over on the righthand side first as that's a single layer, then line up and mark for the other holes. You'd still be punching through two layers of card and two layers of paper but it might need less brute force.
Thanks for calling by - and hope your weekend is going well!
