This month's Challenge is to make a shaped card




 - and I made a teepee card:




The method is to take three 6 by 6 in squares scored across a diagonal.


  
Using a strong glue these are stuck together like this:



Dp is then trimmed into triangles to fit as in the following picture - I used Little Claire papers



The uncovered part tucks behind when the card is folded into a teepee - the next step is to punch holes through to thread ribbon through to tie...and the topper is added.



I used this fabulous Bloobel image Snowball Thunk coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and Glitter.


To post, the card fold flat and will fit in an A5 envelope.




Hope to see your make at House and Cards!




Happy Crafting!
