32 years ago we had our first lovely daughter. Quite an accomplishment with me only being 39 don't you think!! Her due date was 2/12, but she waited until Valentine's Day to put in an appearance. Now she is a mother to 4 and starts the Esthetician program at La James on Wed. How soon before I can come in for a facial?

I have to say that this punch is my absolute favorite. I have an earlier post with several stamped samples, but I decided to try it with some designer paper (DSP). These are all made using retired paper, but I have another one in progress with the new Ice Cream Parlor DSP FREE from sale-a-bration. No the flowers are not true to nature, so if that bothers you, just use the stamp set as well. But this is an easy way to use some of that stash of paper that you've been hoarding! Yes you, I know you hoard paper!! So get busy.

Cut cardstock in half lengthwise. Score at 1 3/4" from one end and 3 7/8' from the other end. The two folds will slightly overlap. Use sticky strip to fasten the bottom fold to hold the teabag. This is a nice card to send to someone who is under the weather or adapt it for any tea drinking friend. I used the same design as my sister did for her teabag card, see that card that I just added to the post "I am so proud of my sister".

The technique is best done using stripes. I used the new springtime vintage designer paper from the Occasions mini for this card. The gathered victoria lace trim adds a vintage feel to this card. The butterflies add some whimsy.
This card uses paper from Greenhouse gala. If I were doing it again, I wouldn't use quite so much dsp.
