Thanks for the shout-out by Cath on MoxieFab World, my origami box tutorial brought me my best visits record ever!  If you would like Cath to stop by your blog sometime, you can click on this link to add your blog’s URL to Moxie Fab World Blog Roll. Hugs to Cath! Thank you!

 

I was preparing for some blog hop (will share in December) and ended up with this card and tea bag holder (the origami box;)) I saw Jennifer using some narrow strips of paper to add more interest to her cards in the Holiday Card Boot Camp (by Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner & Friends). I love the look and used on this card. Some way to use all the scraps I saved:) Kristina has a little twist to it: she uses a scalloped border punch first – the results are adorable!

Color combination from The Play Date Cafe Challenge: Maroon, Copper and Tumeric. Color Challenges force me to use color combos I would have never thought of myself. I like the result on this card!

I stamped the box after folding all the folds so I knew exactly where I want to stamp:) I love white embossing on red!

Stamp: My Cup of Tea (Lawn Fawn), Cardstock: Bazzill, Embossing powder: Copper, White (Zing!)

 

I started with the sketch from CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. It turned out a little different than I thought:) But I had fun!

 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

I made the envelope and faux stitched the border on the back of the card. Love the look of white on kraft.

Hello Friends, I just moved my blog to waffleflower.com and the files below changed the reference accordingly.

Click here to download the 3×3 envelope template (.pdf, print at 100% scale on letter-sized paper)

The heart is big enough to cut with scissors. You can also use an exact knife. I included an extra heart for variations.

HeeHee, I used the little turkey feather in Paper Smooches “My Peeps” to create the three  flowers:)

I wish I had some smaller sentiment but I love every sentiment in “Pretty Phrases” (Paper Smooches)

Stems from “Lunar Lights” (Lawn Fawn), “Rain Drops Background” (Hero Arts)IMG 0752

Inspired by the color combo: Pink/Green, I made this card for Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge
