Color & Contour Teepee Fun Fold Card

 A long time ago I was given a Teepee Fun Fold Card similar to my photo below. I set the card on my display shelf and often admired it. For Stamp and Chat class earlier this month I decided to finally give it a go with my customers. My fears and worries were unfounded. Everyone did great making theirs.

Standing with it's coordinating envelope.

A better front view.

Fully open, laying flat. Notice the location of the white brad closure.

Cutting Dimensions:
The base is made from three 4" squares of Basic White cardstock, scored diagonally and glued as shown.
With the Sweet Sorbet ink, stamp the floral image randomly all over the card base.
Follow with the Memento ink with floral outline image matched each previously stamped flower.
The Sweet Sorbet triangle is cut diagonally from a 3-3/4" square. Adhere to card front.
The Basic White triangle is cut diagonally from a 3-1/2" square. Stamp the sentiment on the Basic White Triangle. Then adhere to Sweet Sorbet triangle.
Finish with the embellishment.
The extra flower needs a 2" square scrap of Basic White raised with dimensionals after stamping and die cut.

Form the teepee, mark a small pencil dot where you want the mini hole punch to be, punch the hole, and place the brad.

During class we discovered it was very hard to have the greeting be level, due to the teepee shape when assembled. It doesn't matter in my opinion, but if it does to you, just draw a light pencil line to help you aim the sentiment stamp. Then erase with a white eraser after you have allowed the ink to dry well.

When folded in half to make this shape, it fits perfectly into our A2 envelope.
