Welcome to the NC Blog Hop for September. Our theme is trash to treasure. Sorry, I couldn't get into that so I have a card that does need something Stampin' Up! does not sell. I did get it at the Dollar Tree so maybe that will qualify. The Dollar Tree is a great place to find treasures!
I've been making some teepee cards. See this post for a video on making these cards.
Since I've linked you to a video, I'm going to give you pictures and supplies. Here is my teepee Christmas card featuring the Be Jolly stamp set.
Isn't this cute!!! You'll need
3 pieces of Mossy Meadow measuring 4 x 4. Use your Paper Trimmer to score each piece diagonally once.
2 pieces of Heartwarming Hugs measuring 3 7/8 x 3 7/8. Cut both of these diagonally once. You'll only use three of these pieces.
1 piece of Basic White measuring 3 7/8 x 3 7/8. Cut once diagonally.
Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper
Be Jolly and Banner Year stamp sets (easy to substitute paper you have!)
Peaceful Deer for Merry Christmas sentiment. This is a photopolymer stamp set. I curved the stamp on my block. It stays long enough to get your image!
Memento Black and Real Red pads
Blends Combo Packs: Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, Ivory, Balmy Blue, Old Olive
Sequins for Everything
Here are pictures of the outside and the inside of the card.
So, I think you have what you would need to make this card. What else did I need? This type of card needs something to close the card when you have it standing. Use either small magnets or velcro rounds. I had no idea where to look for these in my craft room and no time. I checked out Amazon and of course they are there. I didn't want to wait even for next day delivery. Yes, the Dollar Tree had both! For the Christmas card, I used velcro. If you do use the magnets, the ones I got did not have adhesive on them. I used Tear & Tape to cover the side.
I appreciate your time today. Please take the entire hop. NC has very talented stampers! You'll love the ideas that you get. Amanda is up next!
