Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - shaped cards
Sponsor & prize this week - Joanna Sheen, £10 gift voucher.
I thought I would try my hand at a teepee card, and whilst not exactly post-friendly, certainly makes a change from a regular square format. I thought it was just the perfect shape for a Christmas tree shaped card too, so made my variation with zig-zags at the base before layering it up with punched green card. Onto this I dovetailed a strip of white pearlescent card to meet the zig-zagged edge of the green & then punching a bit more white for the snow-covered lower branches. I used a Martha Stewart to punch & a bit more pinking to add to the spiky fir tree feel. I then added old-gold coloured satin ribbon and dotted clear glitzy gems & a row of yellow & gold ones.
Each of the three sides were treated similarly & each was also topped with star punched from more pearlescent card stock (though gluing them to each other so they all met at the top was a tricky manoeuvre!)
For the front I coloured an image from Mami Doodles with Promarkers and mounted it onto gold mirri (cut & embossed using a Spellbinders decked oval). I backed this oval too with more mirri so that any protruding bits which might peep out on each of the other two sides would only show shining gold - & this sandwich was popped onto the tree using Pinflair glue. For the side I am using for the 'to' & 'from' I typed a few words into the centre of a bauble image from Bird's Cards, mounting this onto more gold mirri this time cut into a circle.
Et voilà! Hope you like it!
