G*C*D Studios Tea Bag & Iris Folded Cards

G C D Studios paper was great working with. It's not too thin, it's not too thick. It is double sided and makes dimensional tea bag folds.

I carefully cut the squares from the striped paper making sure that all eight were identical. This created the symetrical medallion. The smaller medallion I made smaller squares and alternated papers. The brads were white and colored with a permanent marker to match the papers. I also colored clear crystals with the permanent marker to make them match.

The iris fold opening was cut using a the cuttlebug and the nestabilities Label One die. I cut a frame using two of the die cuts. After I cut the frame and embossed it, I left the dies in place to ink the the embossed section. Jimmye Sue created the iris fold design and completed the card. Complete supplies listed below.
