This is my card for alpha challenge round 8 letter T. For letter T, I made a twist gate fold card. Because I was feeling lazy and didn't want to dig out my circle dies, I just traced around a cap from a pringles can and cut it out. The blue background is made by repeatedly stamping the small flower in the set to fill the paper.

Terrific!! Love how you created your own background paper. I need to do that more often; thanks for the reminder. Your card design is tremendous. Love the center flower. Your trace & cut looks like it was die-cut. Well done all around. Totally awesome! TFS

I This this Sis does pretty much everything in her sleep!! Gorgeousness beholds gorgeousness on this card. If you hadnâ€™t mentioned the Pringle can I would have swearn this was a punch or die cut. How did you get it to be cut so perfect? With your perfectionist who needs dies and punches?

What a fantastic card for the letter T challenge Melody. I adore this blue flower and the blue bg you stamped repeatedly with this flower. Your laziness makes me smile, and the twist gatefold design is really fun. ~Karen.

Melody, such a marvelous shade of blue, and I love this fold.
Just because it was HANDMADE does not mean it was CHEAP, because why send a store-bought card that cost $4.95 when you can make it yourself for $89 worth of supplies?

This is gorgeous! This is another fold I want to try. I really like your background paper you created and your flower image. Gorgeous! The idea that tracing and cutting is less work than getting out the circle die cuts just cracks me up!
