Art Deco Teepee Card

Happy Sunday everyone I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. The card I'm sharing today is another of the sample cards I've made for the ladies at the craft group I'm a member of to make last week. This one was a bit of a challenge for them getting the folding right and cutting the papers to cover the shape but we had a few laughs along the way which was nice. The ladies also had a laugh on me I quite often mention how much I dislike peel off's and this project has 10 peel off borders !! Crafting has to be fun. The design and shape are very different for me so I hope you like her ..




Side 1



Side 2 the fold side



Card Recipe

Teepee Card blank shape from a stall at Ross Papercraft Show
Paper is Kanban
Silver Mirra card
Art Deco decoupage image is from a Kanban sheet 
Feather die is Hot of the Press
Corner die is Memory Box Madeira corner
Champagne glass die came free in a magazine
Silver peel off border strips
Grey and  Pink Feathers are from our cupboard at the Craft Group
Sparkle Gems are round Dawn to Dusk Crafts
Square dazzlers from Creative Expressions
Black Organza flower cut from a strip Boyes Stores
Pink Organza Ribbon and Stars my stash
Sentiment is from the Kanban sheet

This is a  great shape although it looks difficult to post it actually flattens to fit in an envelope there is a valley fold in side two. I personally enjoyed doing this its very different. I think I might give it a go sometime with a stamped image and paler colours.

Have a great week everyone Love and  hugs Carole x

Very different for you but just as fabulous! The card shape is so right for the Art Deco image. The feathers really add the wow factor to the card along with thru square dazzler and the pink ribbon. I'm not a fan of peel offs either but they look great on this card. Glad you all had fun with making this card. Debra x
