Send a treat in the post with this simple and elegant High Tea Card

Crafter's Companion – 11/12/20

Send someone special a little treat in the post with this sweet and elegant High Tea Card!

This creation is just our cup of tea! It uses the Best of British collection to create a pocket for a real teabag, the ideal gift for someone who enjoys the finer things in life!

You Will Need:

Step One

Cut a piece of Kraft card measuring 4.14″ x 6.14″ and two pieces of patterned paper measuring 4.10″ x 3.5″. Ink the edges of both pieces with the Vintage Photo inkpad. Line the two pieces of patterned paper together in centre the Kraft card, leaving a small border around the edge and attach. Glue this to the front of your card blank.

Step Two

Use a white gel pen, or fine-liner to draw a stitched-border effect around the edge of the patterned paper piece. Die-cut a piece of white paper using the Floral Border die, cut to measure across the card, and attach so it lines up across the join between the two pieces of patterned paper.

Step Three

Cut a piece of vellum measuring 7″ x 3.8″ and fold in half. Fold front left corner down to form a flap. Glue the long sides together, decorate with ribbon, lace and a bow and attach to the front of your card.

Step Four

Choose your pieces from the High Tea set – we’ve used the coffee pot, tea cup, Victoria sponge and cake stand. Stamp and colour them (using the alcohol markers), before die-cutting and arranging on your card using 3D foam pads.

Step Five

Create a little tag from Kraft card, stamp using a sentiment from the High Tea set and attach to your tea bag. For a final elegant touch, we’ve added a few pearl embellishments.

Now all you have to do is pop the tea bag in its holder and send your card off to give someone a cosy treat!
