Tea Bag Folding: A Christmas Tree

Hey everyone! Well, I had to post this card front I did today before going to bed. I've got a plane to catch in the morning, so gonna try to get lots of rest. I got in my new Martha Stewart Icicle Border punch today and just had to use it. I love the art of tea bag folding. It is 'snow' much fun. LOL! So when I saw this idea in a book given to me by one of my good friends on Just Scrappin', I knew I had to try it. This is just a card front. I ran out of blank cards, so I will have to finish this one up when I get some. I ran the background through the Cuttlebug using the Snow Dots Embossing Folder. I then tore a strip of white paper for the 'snow'. I also embossed it using D'Vine Swirl. After embossing, I added Stickles to the swirl design for some shimmer. Next, I followed the directions to make my tea bag folded tree. Isn't it so cool? I love this look! I then used my new border punch to create the effect at the bottom. I also stickled over this for some added shimmer. Last, a star on top to complete the card. I think I will put my Christmas sentiment on the inside of the card. Thanks for looking! Hope you all have a great weekend! I'll be back on Monday.
Pin It!

Well, let me try this again. The last time I tried to leave a comment there was a message that said the blog author had to approve all comments.

Anyway, I love this card. That new snowflake folder is so cute. I think the colors are just perfect, and I love the tea bag folding too.
