Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Oh my - it is Monday already!  That means that it is time for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge.  So this week, we are including fancy folds on our cards and other projects. If you Google stamping and fancy folds (that is what I did to come up with the inspiration for my fancy fold), you will get some great ideas or better yet, take a look at what the Design Team came up with - loads of inspiration for you!  Just Click Here to get to the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog spot.

Here is my creation.  I used the new Magnifique paper pack X7127B coming out in just a couple of days.  I also used the "A Sip" stamp set A1109 and the "Unity" stamp set C1422 for the inside sentiment.
Here is the outside of the card.  It measures 5"x5"


Un-tie the ribbon closure and the triangle opens to the left like a regular card.  This is what you see:

Then this part of the card opens with the fold on the top to reveal the tea bag inside.  I need to really find some different color tea bags though, but this will give you the idea.

Happy Stamping and be sure to post on the site so I can see what you have come up with!

Super cute idea with the tea bag, Debi! This would make a great teacher card or "Friend" thinking of you card. Great folding, and wonderful surprise on the inside! Thanks for joining us at Heart 2 Heart challenges!

Very nice idea! I love addition of a tea bag. It makes it so much more than just a card.
