Tea Bag Holder

I made these cards for a Tea Bag swap that I am in. When i get the swap back I will have 14 different kinds of Tea to try, and some fun ideas also. I tired and tried to use a stamped image on the front of the card, that I bought especially for this swap, but no matter how I colored it I didn't like it!! I think it was to artsy for me! lol I plan on sending a few stamped images of it for everyone in the swap to try, maybe they will have better luck coloring it in then i did.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

I saw some really cute Santa cards in a Paper Creations magazine that i wanted to make, they had a pattern to use to make their cards and I thought instead of tracing and cutting him out, it would be so much easier to use paper punches! So, here is the card i made and here are the punches I used: the 3" scallop punch for the beard, 2" circle punch for the face, 1" circle punch for the mustache, 1/2" circle punch for the nose, and a reg hole punch for the eyes. The hat and eyebrows I cut free hand, the holly and berries are a Quickutz die cut.
