A TCP Tutorial! - Teepee Card

Happy Hump day everyone!

Thought I would share a really great link with you today for an awesome new style of card.
A Teepee Card!

The gorgeous Ms Ali has been ever so kind to us this week
and made us a very simple and easy to follow tutorial! 

You can see it HERE, it is on 

This card style would be perfect for this week challenge at 
of show a particular card style!

Why not have a peak at the tutorial and play along with us this week?

Here is a peaksie at this gorgeous card that I made following along with Ali's tutorial!
The Front - Standing - Sorry it is sorta out of focus - My camera was trying to focus on the whole card and the sentiment and it is just not that intelligent to do both!

 Side view - both sides have some additional butterflies I cut from my punch.

What the card looks like laying flat.

The Posh Pins I made myself (keep an eye on here and  The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog for a tutorial on these little beauties in the near future).  I mounted the ticket behind some wood fibers to add some texture and I have added some faux stitching to all the DP.  Lots of butterflies and pretty bling and a blingy swirl butterfly tail and ribbon.  I also added 3 white butterfly eyelets to thread the ribbon through to hold the card together.  And while I keep calling it a card - this little beauty I actually made to be a room decor inspiration item that I am not sure if I am going to part with now (lol so typical of me!) or give it to some new friends who have just moved house as their house warming pressie :))

Still plenty of time so come along and have a craft with us!
Why not try your hand at the tutorial?
You can not argue that it is not a pretty fold :))

Thanks for dropping in to see me today.
I hope you like what you have seen :)
