Pocket Tea Card Tutorial - April 2009

Pocket Tea Card Tutorial - April 2009
Project by Kim Baker for Elemental Doodles

Completed card dimensions: 4" X 6"

Supplies Needed:

  • Tea Stamp Set - Elemental Doodles
  • Brown Ink
  • Sewing Machine - optional
  • Sizzix Die - Tag
  • Ribbon - optional
  • Red Tape
  • Bone Folder

Directions:

  1. Cut 12"x12" cardstock into 6"x12" strips.
  2. Score one of the 6"x12" strips of cardstock at 4".  Flip the cardstock over on the other side and score at 8".  Use a bone folder to go over your score lines.  Measure 2" from the bottom of the right side of the paper.  Cut from the 2" mark at an angle to the 4" score line as shown in the diagram below (scroll to the bottom of the page for diagram).
  3. This step is optional - if you want to ink the edges of the card do it now.
  4. Use the red tape and adhere to the back of the card to the center section.  If you are going to use a sewing machine, sew the front section to the center section.  If you are not going to sew on the card then use the red tape, punch holes and use ribbon or any other way you want to decorate the front of the card.
  5. Using the Elemental Doodles™ Tea Set stamp the large teacup on the bottom of the front of the card.  I also stamped the tea bag in brown ink on the center section of the card.  Stamp the little star and "tea time" all along the edges of the top of the back section and the angle on the center section and the angle on the front section.
  6. Punch a tag from the other 6"x12" strip of cardstock using the Original Tag, Super Traditional Sizzix die (38-0947).  The dimensions of the tag are as follows: 3 1/8" x 4 3/4" in the event you do not have a die cut available to you.
  7. Stamp the saying from the Tea Set in brown ink on the tag as shown in the picture above.
  8. Use ribbon to create a tab at the top of the tag as shown and place in the top pocket of your card.
  9. Place tea bag in the bottom pocket of your card.
