Hello everyone, it's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and Lorraine's turn to host. She would like to see "Anything but square" for her theme but it is an optional theme so all of your new creations are welcome and will be entered into the prize drawing! By the way the next two challenges will run for two weeks to cover some of the busy summer season so there is plenty of time for everyone to join in!
When I was working on this card I thought the optional theme was "shaped cards" so I made a Teepee shaped card, it still is "anything but a square" but I might have gone an easier route had I known the correct theme :) However I'm happy I tried this card fold to step out of my comfort zone a bit, as it's super easy to do and I love how it turned out.
The stamp above is Penny Black's Poppy Field, I used it a few weeks ago but found this image already colored in my box of extras and decided it would make a cute card front for this teepee card.
Sharing several pictures in today's post to show each side.
The patterned paper is from my stash. Border die cut and butterflies are also from my box of extras. Sentiments are from Penny Black (the large sentiment below) and Stampers Anonymous (small sentiment above).
The teepee card folds completely flat so it can be mailed. A small velcro dot is used for standing it up, so it opens and closes easily. The only issue I saw was that the corners it's standing on are bending easily, maybe they need some sort of re-inforcement, but I haven't thought of anything yet.
You can find the tutorial for this card shape HERE. As mentioned it's super easy to do.
Below is a photo of the prizes for this fortnight (since there are only 2 challenges ending in August (including this one) we will have a separate prize bundle for each fortnight. This fortnight it's a wonderful Christmas bundle from Craft Stash, it will be split between 3 winners which will be announed at the end of August.
