Tee Pee Reindeer

 Bah! Humbug!     Challenge 28...Shapes
Jingle Belles     JB29-Reindeer Games

I'm so glad I was able to combine these 2 Christmas challenges.
This is called a Tee Pee card, hence the shape for Bah! Humbug! I have been seeing some of these popping up around blogland. I found an instructional video on the YouTube channel thenorsugirl. I tried a couple of ways to make this a link, but didn't work. Hope you can find it on YouTube if you are interested by the info above.
The first picture is the front, then you go around to the right in the next pictures. In the 3rd picture you can see the little velcro closure peeping. This allows the card to be opened up so you can write on the inside and it will also fold flat so that it can be mailed.

 I used some of my favorite Christmas paper that I've had for 2 years now, but this black, red, and cream WOW's me every time I use it.

 Of course, you recognize the frolicking reindeer for the Jingle Belles challenge ;-)
This was a fun little puzzle and not that difficult with the good YouTube instructional.
Supplies: Papers: Magic of the Season-Hobby Lobby, Stamps: SU-Cute & Curly, Hampton Art-Sentiments, CTMH-D1283 Say It in Style, The Paper Studio-Snowflakes, Ink: SU-Riding Hood Red, Black Sharpie Marker, VersaMark, SU-Curly Label Punch, SU dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,

I have never seen a tee-pee card; what a neat idea! You executed it perfectly and I love the reindeer paper :)

This is a new design for me and I like how you've used it - it works and makes me think of a Christmas tree (which may not have been in your mind, but it works in mine!).

That paper is wonderful too, I go traditional a lot but when the color combo works I am all for it. This is very classy looking, elegant too.

Ooooh, so cute! I always wondered about the closure for this type of card. You've cleared that up. Wonderfully done!

I am so struggling to visit everyone's blogs at the moment. Just back from holiday, washing - ironing - work - eeeeeeeeeek just can't fit it all in. So glad I've got a little blog hopping time though or I would have missed these beauties - love that shape and design - real wowzas.
