Fairy Tee Pee Card

At Bella Creations, my design team-mate, Micupoftea (Shawn) had a July challenge in her Voila Ink! group to make a teepee card.   I say "had" because today is the last day to enter (depending when you read this, you may still have time to enter your card).  Of course, being an ink group, I had to used some ink, so I edged all the sides with Wild Honey Ranger Distress Ink.  It's not very noticeable because the Prima fairy flora papers I chose to use are heavily patterned.

I used the decoupage fairies, some rub-ons, stickers, flowers, and purple gems from the Fairyopolis card making kit.  This cardmaking kit is the big prize for the Bella Creations Tres Chic challenge this month.  You still have time to enter that challenge--it runs until August 5th So if  you like the looks of the materials I used, be sure to enter the challenge.  You can find it in the Forum section of the Bella Creations ning site.  You just may be the random winner to get the Crafter's Companion Fairyopolis kit.  Did you notice the little fairy on the paper under the card?  That's from the stamp set that comes in the card kit.  I multi-stamped the image and layered it just like the decoupage fairies that come in the kit.  But I'm saving it for a layout or card.

I've never made a teepee card before, but Shawn gave us two links to learn how:
Here is the You Tube tutorial that Shawn found: teepee card
If you cannot see the video, check out Shawn's blog and directions~
*You will need three 6"x6" squares, folded diagonally. Crease. Open.
*you need two 5 and 3/4 " squares, CUT diagonally. This gives you 4 triangles, but you only will use 3 of them. Glue 6" creased squares to each other to form cone. Adhere 5.75" triangles to the sides, decorate as desired.

This third side is the fold-over part which can open to make the card flat for mailing.  It's on the side with the 3 purple gems from the kit.
