Teepee Card

I've not made a teepee fold card for a while and for some reason this image seemed to be 'calling out' for one, so I've had a go. I've used a Lili of the Valley image and Nitwits papers on a strong gold mirror cardbase.

Here's the card from the front .....

And a couple of pictures from both sides showing the circle sentiments I added ....

The image was a really sweet one called Carol Singing...

Here's how I made my simple Teepee cardbase:

First I cut a rectangle 12" x 6" of gold mirri card and scored it in half and each half on the diagonal as shown below:

Then I cut another 6" x 6" square of gold mirri card, scored it on the diagonal and adhered it to the rectangle base as shown below (again this is the back of the cardbase):

Before sticking the pieces together (above) I covered each of the triangle shapes with patterned papers so that when I turned it over, it looked like this:

I then used a small circle of stick-on velcro to create the ability to hold the fancy fold in place but also allowing it to open and fold flat for posting. :0)

Happy crafting

Love this Annette! I had great fun making my Sugar Nellie teepee card recently and I agree, that image is perfect for this design! Love the lush paper and gold accents. Gorgeous colouring job on that sweet image too. Love it! Hugs, Wends xoxo

This is a fab fancy fold design and thanks for the tutorial as I've never tried making one of these before!
Isn't it funny how certain images dictate a certain style or fancy fold to you?! This image does look lovely on the teepee base, especially with those gorgeous papers :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx

Wow Annette... you are such a talented designer - that image does look perfect on the teepee shape - I think it's to do with the shape of the image too.

Thanks for the fabulous tutorial - I think I'll give it a go sometime soon!
