Hello peeps out there - I am posting my card for the Christmas Card Club today, Lorraine chose this theme but can't post herself 'cos she is under the weather at the moment - I'm sending a virtual hug your way!   Isn't it a lovely theme - it is open to so many interpretations, which I just lurve.

This post is a tad full of piccies because I wanted you to see it from all sides. I first saw a TeePee card on my friend Suzie's blog and squirrelled the idea away at the back of my mind.  It is really 1.5 square cards glued together in a particular way.  Mine is 6" square and I think the following pics will be self-explanatory.  Oh and because there are soooo many pics, I have postponed the pics of me 'n' the hubster in Cornwall.  You will have to wait patiently Jenny and Sue J.

This is the 'front' of my card with the main Christmas Scene image on it.

The other two sides - 

At a slightly different angle - 

The next two pics show the card in it's flat state!  I used a small Velcro fastener to close the card, there are many different ways of making a fastener but there is so much heavy paper on this one, I wanted to make sure it stayed put!

You can't see the amount of glitter on the snowy plantpots or on the snowflakes but, believe me, I went a little bit berserk with my Star Dust.

This is the inside of the card
