CCC - KAREN'S CHALLENGE - USE A TEABAG FOLD OR ORIGAMI FOLD.


Hello ladies, I hope you have enjoyed your weekend and have been crafting - either a lot or a little lol!!!  I have just finished the quickest card I have ever made!!   One of me many senior moments had me thinking that the Christmas Card Club Challenge (to make a card incorporating either a teabag fold or an origami fold) commenced on 1 August - duh!!  it starts today so, following a teeny weeny (no that's a lie) following a huuuuge panic, I realised that not only did I have to make a very quick card but I also hadn't a clue as to how to do either a teabag fold or an origami fold!  Well thanks to that wonderful invention th'internet I found a tutorial for an easy 5 point origami star.  I must admit that I really have to thank the lovely Karen for setting the challenge, because I have now tried a new technique and although this is not a difficult thing to make, I was pleased with the result and I might try something more difficult next time!!!

Here is my CCC challenge card -



I have added my five point star to my card with the backside - ooops reverse side showing because I wanted to have a sort of 'dish' effect where I could add my Christmas topper.  I realise I should have asked the maestro to take a pic of my star before I glued it to my card and added the Christmas foliage!  Mind you it has been one of those days - lol!!  I am adding the link to the blog where I found the instructions.  http://www.origami-instructions.com/easy-modular-5-pointed-star.html.


Ingredients
6" x 6" square card
Papers are from my stash (several years old!)
Spellbinders Die D'lites - Flourish Trim
Pearls from stash (freebie with magazine)
Floral embellishment - Create and Craft

Thank you all so much for checking out my blog and I hope you like my Christmas card.  I have a birthday card to post in the next day or two so I'll be back!!!

Hugs to you all

SUE

  5. Hi Sue,
    me wonderful blogging mate. Loving your star card. Great design as always. I can't believe there are 3 of you that have never teabag folded before, and have made really great creations by doing something new.
    Now that Sue has given you the heads up on the Lemon Drizzle Cake, but sadly my greedy family members enjoyed it soooooooo much there is none to send out to you and Sue J. So I will tell you it was very light, moist, and made with butter not marge. So you can imagine what it tasted like. lol.
    We all had a super afternoon celebrating little Ellie's Birthday. Good food and even better company as they say.
    I have to sit by the TV tomorrow in case they show Ellie's card so I can put it on a CD for her. Last year it wasn't shown and I'm hoping tomorrow will be different, as her Sister Faye has had 4 shown for 4 years running.
    Have a wonderful crafty evening.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
