Show Off Fold


Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Bravo Burgundy from Stampin' Up, plaid, patterned strip & tea bag papers computer designed.
Ink: Bravo Burgundy
Stamps: Cheer & Wishes Stampin' Up
Other: Papermania pearl brad
Card Size: 15cm x 10.5cm


Method:

Haven't made a tea bag card in ages! This one was made for a swap. The fold used is called Show Off Fold by Carole. Has a nice 3d effect. The medallion is mounted on a burgundy Nestability scalloped circle, and is finished with a brad in the centre. The patterned strip is made from a matching tea bag tile design repeated in a line, matted onto the burgundy card. The greeting was inked with a burgundy marker, stamped onto the plaid paper, and again matted onto burgundy card. All on a linen finish card base.

I am also posting the elements that I used in this card, in case anyone would like to use them. Private use only please - no selling of the designs. You are welcome to sell any cards made using them though. The images are a higher quality than I use for my card photos. The tiles will need resizing to whatever size you prefer to work with.

This is the tea bag tile used for the medallion:


The tile I used to make the patterned strip - just printed four in a row:
