Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

3D Christmas Card + Teabag folding

{WOYWW post below this or click here}
Hullo there every one! I wanted to join with Hazelnuts Christmas challenge this week and have another entry for Di's Snippets challenge too, so here we are.
I have made a 3D card which was on my desk and showed you how to cut the die outside the image step by step see below post or look here.
The card was really a 3D image from ages ago and decided to finally make it up. Had this new corner die (from win with 1-2-3 Stitch- Anja Marianne corner die) and had cut this sheet as test from scraps and wanted to use it up. I added a silver frame cut with Spellbinder Petite ovals, and Scallop Petite Ovals with a scrap of silver mirri card, and glued it around the oval cut outside the image.

Here is another snippet used - the tea bags were printed out over twelve months ago and found them on my dining table  thought will use them up too.
This is the the bag used copied out nine times, then cut out and folded. You could right click on it, "save as.." and save it and copy it eight more times, print it up on high resolution and you would be able to make it as well. The medallion die is from Spellbinder and the folder is 5 x 7 Cuttlebug called Kassie's Brocade. I distressed it a bit, added greeting etc.
 
 This magnificent card is not mine, it is an OSA swap Orange/Black, with clever use of wallpaper and paper piecing stamp from Barbara I. of Oriental Stamp Art group, on Yahoo groups. For my entry to this swap see link here where show new background technique - stamping an ink block.

Thanks so much everyone for popping over for peek and chat. May God bless your day wherever you may be,
Shaz in Oz.x

Very effective tea bag folding Shaz, I have tried it but always end up all fingers and thumbs and nothing like planned.

Wow! That teabag folding looks like quilting...so pretty! I have never tried this fold...it is sure a great look on your card!

The tutorial you gave on cutting outside the die was really appreciated by me...I want to try that so it was fun to see your first card here where you showed the card you made with that technique..It is lovely!
God bless...
