Christmas Teabag Card!!!

I'm not a great lover of Tea Bag Folding but have to keep my hand in just in case I get asked for a basic class at the shop........which hasn't happened for a while.
Usually I just do one card per year with this technique and more often than not it's a Christmas one as the papers make it more!!!
This year I have used the Making Memories St Nick papers and cut 3" and 2.5" squares for folding.
I don't like the look when the rosettes stick out so I always glue mine down so that they are flat and decorate them with any leftover peeloff corners that are floating about.
So that's my one card done for this year thank!!!

I'll be having a busy weekend as I need to design some new cards for classes for next week. One is just about finished but I need to do about half a dozen if I can. Then I have card orders in which I would like to get out of the way and I also need to do a few more cards with the cupcake stamps which should be launching look out for details of those.

First I am taking a break for a couple of hours to have tea and watch some GA.

Thanks for dropping by today.


  1. I don't do much teabag folding, but I do think it can be effective and I think your card here shows just how effective it can be. Great choice of papers.

  2. Sheila, your teabag card is lovely, the papers look so nice and like you I don't 'do' teabag folding but you have captured the christmas theme. Looking forward to seeing what you have been up when you next 'BLOG'
