Tealight Card instructions


Hey all

I’ve just come off air after a very busy tool shed with the lovely Lottie, and right at the end there we did the tea light card. Now anyone who has the Advanced Construction Techniques DVD will have seen how to do the basic version of this card, and this version has only 4 tea-lights and they are in a separate slider box, so I thought I’d share the measurements with you.

To make the inner slider draw, start with card stock that is 7.5 x 3″ and using the boxer board slotted into place on the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion with the inches side facing upwards, score on box lid at 3/4″ deep (that’s the 6th line in from the handle). Assemble this as a box.

Then for the card itself, start with a piece of the Core’dinations 12×12 card stock cut in half to 6″x12″ and rest against box base. Score at ha,f an inch, then fold, crease and butt the scoreline against the but bar again, then score 3/4″. Fold and butt the crease line again and score at 1.5″, fold and butt and again score at 3/4″. Turn the card around and butt the other side against box lid and score at 3 3/8″ (to form the front of the card)

Then I created the embossed topper using the new Darice Embossing folders.

We sent this card out to our lucky winner who was drawn from the cup of chance – Joan Goldup from Kent – Joan this is on its way to you now so congratulations, and thank you to everyone else who emailed in!

If you saw the show, you’ll have seen that I also made this wonderful card below using the new Enveloplus CD-ROM, with a matching envelobox – well I thought I’d send this out to one of our customers too, so if you want to win this card, all you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post, and tomorrow evening I’ll choose a comment at random and send the card to them!

Right, must go and prepare for my next show – I’m on again at 4pm and 6pm with the wonderful Nigel May! Then big night tonight – X-Factor final!

Will update you all again soon! Sara xx
