Pansy & Teabag


Today I am sharing another card from my library mainly because I am still all upside down in my room.

I have made a few new ones – have around 8 in a folder just waiting to be cropped and resized and others still waiting to be photographed – I need to get myself reorganised as well as my room I think....

This is a card we made in class last week after someone asked for teabag folding!

The sheet was from
It is called Purple Pansy Card Front with teabag tiles, item number 297984 and was designed by Carol Lepard

I printed the whole sheet onto 128gsm matt photo paper which was perfect for the teabag folding too...

This card really was quick and easy – it was completed in less than 20 mins so great for a last minute card.

I chose a scallop edged card and used a deckle edge cutter to crop a piece of silver metallic paper – this was stuck to the card leaving an even border all round.

Then the image was stuck in place leaving the border of silver.

After cutting the teabag tiles I did a very basic fold and created the medallion – a large pretty lilac pearl brad was pushed through the centre of the medallion then stuck on my card using a blob of silicone.

I punched a pop up butterfly from a piece of pale pink glitter card and positioned it in the lower half of the card

To finish I added a sentiment that was matted onto a piece of lilac card which had the corners punched – placed it right along the bottom of the card and added 2 pointed AB gems.

As I said – quick and easy – but pretty with it!!

More teabag cards to come soon...

Thanks for popping by
