I have lots of cards to put up on the blog…. but again, it is that “time poor” thing!
I NEED A CUPPA – WANT TO JOIN ME?
This is a class card that my ladies did a couple of weeks ago.
Let me say, I DON’T LIKE CAMOMILE TEA but I did like the cover (colours and flowers) and built this card around the package tea. (So why don’t I like camomile tea? I was raised on it!! Had a tummy ache – camomile tea – had a cold – camomile tea. Mum even rinsed my hair in a camomile solution!! Now, the smell of camomile makes me want to gag!)

The following pictures show a different colour card stock. When I finished the card, taking pictures as I made it, I decided that I would try another colour. So I decided to use Night of Navy. I didn’t re-do the pictures (You know, the time poor thingy 🙂 )
Place the card base and pocket together. secure with a clip. On the bottom, measure and mark 1/4″ on both sides. Using a kraft knife and steel ruler, trim both sides. (Making both sides tapered – like a teacup shape)
Emboss the base, pocket and handle (Speaking of handle – there are two in this picture but on the blue card, I used only one and attached it to the inside/front of the card).
Photo showing how the sides are attached to the pocket and the front of the base.
Make sure that you use a strong adhesive on the bottom of the pocket. I used red sticky tape.
I used confetti cream to make this card.
ENJOY your cuppa!
