Teabag Folding

Hi Guys,
Apologies once again for the delay in postings. Time just seems to fly by when you have littlies to look after.

I saw a beautiful card on Teneale William's site on teabag folding and decided to give it a try. It was so easy! I ended up making two cards but big apologies on the quality of photo - it was late and I am having major issues with my camera (being that we took it to the beach and got it wet and now the screen doesnt work!).

Anyway, hope you get a bit of an idea. The paper that I used is from Christina Re - a little invitation shop at Fullarton near where i live stocks a huge amount of her beautiful papers. This particular black and white number has polka dots on one side and stripes on the other - depending on where i punched out the squares made a big difference on the look of the overall result. I stamped the background image in versamark with the french script background stamped and then embossed it in clear ep. The Real Red cardstock was from SU as was the metal tag. The ribbon was just a cheapy I bought at a habberdashery store.


***blogger will not let me alter where I place the pictures, so please excuse the aesthetics of this entry! grrrr

Your card looks great Tracy. I noticed that one of Teneale's too and have been meaning to give it a try. It looks tricky though!

They're beautiful Tracey, and I love your embossing on the background paper - looks so classy.
