Tea bag folding - love this card!!!

ok - I'm totally new to Tea Bag folding. In fact, I saw the idea in the latest Paper Creations magazine and still didn't know it was tea bag folding so that shows you how clueless I was (thanks, Debi, for cluing me in!). Just had to try it though because it reminded me of a quilt block and since I haven't taken time to sew in a really long time, I figured this would fill a void (kind of - hee hee!). I experimented and played with different papers. I did a lovely folded design out of TAC Catelynne paper (currently buy 1, get 1 free!) and gave it to my mom. (no pic!) It was so pretty but kind of bulky. So, then, I did one out of TAC Just Like Dad paper and really liked it but it didn't have as much of a Christmasy feel as I wanted.


So...what to use, what to use... Aha! My friend, Heather, gave a bunch of us some wonderful vellum so I used that and loved it!!! So, here's the tea bag folded card that I made with my class last night. They really liked it too. I think it would also be pretty with brilliance moonlight white snowflakes stamped on the vellum before it was folded but didn't want to add that drying time to the class process with all the folding. So, some brilliance starlight silver TAC snowflakes finished out the card on bazzill monochromatic reds. And, a Level A hostess set, "Just For You" provides the sentiment on the inside.






What do you think?

Happy Stamping!
