Instructions: This tent fold card measures 6 1/4”x 6 1/4” / 16cm x 16cm. Make the card base to the above measurements with the white card stock. Find the printed paper with the lace in the print, cut this a little smaller than the card front. Ink both card front and paper edges with the Victorian Velvet, the Tea die ink using the inking foam tool or daubers. Taking the sentiment and sepia ink, stamp the sentiment to the printed paper to the right, below the center. Adhere both paper and card front together using the 3D foam dots or tape.
Using the white card stock and sepia ink, stamp the elements: 3x tea bags, 1x the teacup border, 2x the flower border, 2x the rope frame from the A day at the sea set.
To make the rope frame, trim then adhere the two frames together so they form one longer frame. Color the rope with the Beige zig marker. Cut the 3d foam tape or dots to fit the rope frame and adhere to the card front once the placement is found using the flower borders. Color the flower borders using the Peach pink, pale rose, mid green, olive green zig markers. Trim to fit behind the rope frame and adhere together with the clear drying adhesive. Adhere to card front using 3D foam tape and clear drying adhesive. For the tea bags: Die cut extra tea bags from the white card stock, 4x for two bags and 6x for the center bag. Adhere the layers together. Color the tea bags by using the tea die ink. The tea bag ties are colored with the pale rose and the mid green zig markers. Adhere in place. Prepare the teacups and place them above the stamped teacup in the tea bag. Fussy cut the remaining flower border off cuts and adhere these to the foot of the card and a few flowers and leaves to the center tea bag so they peek out behind the tea bag. To finish the card, apply the diamond stickles to the rope frame, the teacups, the flowers and the tea bag ties.
