Tea Bag Card

What madness! The Red Hot Crop is only two days away and I am NEARLY READY! This last week my living room and dining rooms have been turned into Stampin' Up! Heaven! I've got the table covered with current projects I'm finishing up.

There's a small table in front of the TV with my forms and fliers and hostess packets and other things that I needed to go through. The counter is set up with my card display boards so I can fill in where I need to. And there's a humun-go rubbermade chest in the middle of the floor where I've been storing things as I think of them!

So beyond the chaos that is my house... I thought I'd share my Make & Take for the event. Isn't it cute? (Gwen Mangelson took all the pics for me! Cause it's kinda hard only having two hands!!) It is a Tea Bag Holder card, and just as easy as can be to make!

Sahara Sand Cardstock 3-1/4"x9-3/4"
Buckaroo Blue Cardstock 2-1/4"x2-1/4"; 2-1/4"x1-3/4"
Whisper White Cardstock 2"x2"; 2"x1-1/2"
Sentimental Journey Patterned Paper 3" x 3"
Paper Trimmer
Bone Folder
Sticky Strip
Under the Weather Stamp Set
True Thyme, Basic Black classic ink pads
Blender Pens
Mellow Moss and So Saffron Ink Refills

1. Cut cardstock and patterned paper to sizes indicated above.
2. Using bone folder score Shara Sand Cardstock at 3-1/4" and 6-1/2". Fold along score lines and crease with bone folder
3. Cut the right most section in half cross ways to remove a small triangle. (see diagram)
3. Stamp Bowl image in Basic Black ink onto the 2x2 Whisper White cardstock.
4. Ink the steam stamp in True Thyme ink, stamp off on scratch paper, then stamp above bowl image.
5. Pick up some Mellow Moss ink with the blender pen, and color in bowl image. Use the same technique to color in soup and chicken on bowl.
6. Mount this square onto the Buckaroo Blue cardstock, and then again on the patterned paper. Set aside.
7. Using True Thyme ink, stamp sentiment on smaller Whisper White cardstock, mount on Buckaroo Blue cardstock. Set aside
8. Run a line of sticky strip along the bottom edge of the last pannel, remove backing, and fold over to make a pocket.
9. Adhere matted bowl image to the front of the card.
10. Open card and adhere sentiment.
11. Insert Tea Bag in pocket and you're done!

Hope you enjoyed the project! Have fun!
