I recently saw a card that I loved the concept for except that it was a square card, and I don't do square cards because of the increased postage cost to myself and my customers. So, I took a break from my project and made a 3-D set to make 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 cards with the same concept. The set is now available at Custom Creations by Carolivy. The set has 4 card fronts (2 each of the 2 different snowflakes), 6 backing papers, sentiments, 3 Tea Bags and several extra snowflakes for embellishment.
Here I have shown how I finished off 2 of the cards that I finished today.
The Tea Bag medallion on the second card is using one of the tea bag tiles from the set and my new Radiant Star fold (also posted on my web site, free)
Here is a close-up of one of the sets of snowflakes. I discovered today that using Clear Fingernail Polish with Glitter in it, my colors didn't bleed, like happens a lot when I use most glitter glues!

Took a break from my project and made this card for the Tea Bag Challenge on Circle of Crafters
The backing paper is from my Backing Papers 2 CD, the tile is one of mine and the fold is Jeannie Pelletreau's Xing fold, variation 9. The 3-D and stitching is from Anne's Paper Art. I have used purple and deep yellow machine polyester embroidery threads.
