Magnolia Teepee Fall Card

Hello my dear friends,

How are you today ? I hope that you are great with the great weather, although we don't have four seasons here but with all the people out there screaming they want autumn , so I know that I have to make something "autumn" .

I came across in youtube for this teepee card, I hope that I spell and name it correctly, it's a overlap triangle shape card I took about two days to finish it and I hope I have inspired you something, besides the normal square card.

I also enter this card to Just Magnolia challenge~Anything goes....oh, I had been a long time didn't participate in any challenge:-))

Three sides of teepee...I used 3 pieces of 6"x 6" cardstock, fold in half then placed and glued them together in a triangle shape.

                             This card can be opened by placing a tape.

I used Magnolia patterned paper to make the background , I distressed with Ranger Antique linen and Vintage Photo. I also made a small tag with Tim Holtz rubberstamp to make the background, that's the sheet music. Can you notice the wire flower behind Tilda? I was so proud that my son, Samuel made it for me by using a thin wire. I used Magnolia doohickey lace to make the border.

                  I used chipboard alphabets to make the "Fall ", I painted them with Ranger Walnut Stain Crackle paint, let it dry, later, I added with Crackle accent on them.I colored Tilda with distress inks- Vintage Photo, Walnut stain, Fired Brick.

The flower on top of Tilda was a sticker. I colored Tilda with Distress inks- Crushed Olive, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Black Soot, Victorian Velvet, SpunSugar.

I placed tulle, lace, pearls, flowers, stickers rhinestones to make the card looks stunning.

I handmade the background patterned paper. Firstly I stamped Tim Holtz rubberstamps-sheet music on white cardstock with Vintage Sepia ink pad, then I distressed it with Ranger Antique linen and Walnut Stain. I added a lot of rhinestones on the card, I love it !! The cute crochet flower was a gift from my crafty-male friend, Paul, from Kuala Lumpur.
I colored Tilda with distress inks- Crushed Olive, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain, Victorian Velvet, Age Mohagany.

Hope that you find something interesting on my card, I love making something beautiful and inspired. Thank you very much for your nice comments, it means a lot for me:-)

Have a nice day.
