Long Distance Tea

Love to have a cup of tea with your friend, but COVID-19 measures making you have to do it long distance? Here is a card to let your friend know you are thinking of them.

This card uses Paper Discovery products from the Teacup Fairies collection and the Papercraft Society box 17 which also has a tea theme.

The front is made using the cut and embossing folder with white card stock that I spritzed with water for a good impression. I used a blue watercolor marker to color the embossed areas.

The card base is a 7 x 5 inches folded which had the front edges and center colored with the blue marker as well.

I cut the small circle area a second time from pink card stock to get the pink used inside the card onto the front. Embossed piece was raised up with foam tape. The pink circle was glued to base and teapot raised on foam tape. Using the medium doily die and a circle die the same diameter as the pink circle, cut a scalloped frame from lightweight paper. Glue frame to embossed layer.

The teacup inside is made in two pieces – the cup and the saucer. I stamped the pieces before I assembled.  The saucer is cut into two parts to make for a smoother fold of the card. (The multiple layers of paper on this card means that the fold cannot be covered up.) To assemble, glue cup side tab to form cup and slide in handle. Glue handle tabs inside. Slide cup bottom tabs into saucer slots and glue to underside. Glue cup inside piece tab to underside of saucer. Glue patterned papers and doily to inside of card keeping center fold uncovered. Fold cup and saucer flat ad glue one side of saucer along card fold. Then glue other side.

Add rectangle “calling cards” and die cut spoon to decorate inside. Glue another piece of pattered paper to back of card to have even weight to front and back of card.

The back flap of envelope is stamped with teas set from the Papercraft Society box in China blue ink.
