Toy Box Teepee Card


At Kate Hadfield Designs there are so many fabulous sets it is really easy to get inspired to use them. There are digital stamps which you can colour, coloured versions you can scrapbook or make into digital layouts. Papers, patterned overlays and doodles galore. No matter what your skill level there are so many goodies to play with.

I have used this great set of doodles Toy Box to make this Teepee fun fold card aimed at a young boy's birthday. I wanted to make it bright and bold in mainly primary colours and chose red as the base card as it linked in all of the pre-coloured images.

This card looks really complex but is super easy to make. You simply use 3 squares of card for your base, score diagonally across the middle and attach together. A velcro dot keeps the flaps together and you then have 3 sides to decorate. You can use one of these sides for your sentiment panel or do as I do and write it inside. You can find a great tutorial at Mixed Up Craft. I use 6" squares for my base and this folds down to fit inside a C5 envelope.

First I chose my designs which was the Rocket, Jack in a Box and Robot. I thought they looked great together for a young boy's card and the bright colours make it a fun and cohesive theme.

I started off with white triangles to fit the sides of the card. The images have been printed onto a matte photo paper so they look bright and bold. This paper is then perfect to use and add elements to the background. I added peel off stickers like stars and dots bit you could easily add colour with inks. The rocket has been fussy cut and popped up with foam pads with a foiled die cut sentiment added to form the 'front' of the card.

For the Jack In A Box I added some small pom poms as his arms outstretched made me think of a juggler. 

If you make this type of card yourself one tip for you is I use a corner rounding punch to neaten the points that form the legs. I found when I made one before that if you leave them pointed they can look tatty after a very short period of time as the weight pushes down on the card edge. Just the simple act of rounding the corners makes them look so much neater and stay in better condition.

Over at Kate Hadfield Designs there is lots going on. Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available.
