Ingredients for our Cup of Tea Z Fold Card

Let’s step through the ingredients used for our card. Some are in the Annual and some are from the Mini Catalogue.

Cup of Tea Bundle

The Cup of Tea Bundle includes the Cup of Tea Stamp Set and the Teacup Dies.
If you like tea, you’ll love creating tea-themed projects. The Cup of Tea Bundle has stamps and coordinating dies for making cards and scrapbook pages.

Create the perfect paper cup of tea with the Cup of Tea Stamp Set, designed for tea lovers. Start by stamping a teacup, then stamp a slice of lemon and a tea bag, and finish off with a sentiment that says what you want to say. You can say thank you. Remind someone that it’s time to get together. Or that you miss them. Not in the mood for tea? You can use the botanical images and sentiments for other projects, too.

The Teacup Dies give you fun tools for making cards for your tea-loving friends. Cut out a teacup, then accent it with a die-cut, segmented lemon slice and a tiny teabag. Add some die-cut flowers, hearts, and herbs, and you’ve created a tea-themed scene will delight anyone. You’ll also love how most of these dies pull double duty. The teabag also doubles as a tag, and the flowers, hearts, and herb plants go with just about anything.

Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper

Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP

If you’re looking for patterned paper that has a boutique feel, this is the paper for you. The Tea Boutique 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper has a designer mix of watercolour and hand-drawn imagery that would be at home in a posh boutique. The artwork has tea-themed images—teacups, teapots, lemons, herbs—on one side with all-purpose patterns on the other side. Use whatever side suits your mood and project. It’s like getting two packs of paper in one!

This Paper includes the new 2022-2024 In Colors.

Sun Prints Designer Series Paper

Sun Prints 12 x 12 DSP

The cyanotype style of the Sun Prints 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Designer Series Paper is a must-have for any paper collection! This set of paper includes gorgeous fern imagery and other botanical designs in an eclectic selection of coloured patterns and designs. From white and blue stripes to blue colour washes, you can mix and match the simple and more sophisticated designs in all your papercrafting projects: card bases, accent pieces, scrapbook layouts. One patterned sheet even includes text describing the scientific classification for ferns—talk about smart!

This Paper included the new In Color, Starry Sky.

  • Card Base: Grey Granite, 14.85 x 21 cm scored at 10.5 cm and 5.25 cm.
  • Layering Papers: Basic White cardstock (inside) 14.5 x 10.1 cm, Tea Boutique OR Sun Prints DSP 14.5 x 4.9 cm.  Basic White for Scalloped Contours, Stitched Rectangle and other die-cut pieces.  Grey Granite for foliage sprigs.

Step by Step Directions

  1. Fold and burnish your Z Fold card base. Fold the card base as you would normally, and then fold the RHS back on itself to form the Z.
  2. Die cut the following 2 pieces from Basic White Card cardstock; Scalloped Contours rectangle approx 11.3 x 8 cm and the smallest Stitched Rectangle.
  3. Die cut two foliage pieces from Grey Granite cardstock using Eden die.
  4. Stamp greeting on Stitched Rectangle die-cut.  I used ‘Just for You’ from Celebrating You Stamp Set.
  5. For Tea Boutique DSP card, stamp Cup of Tea images as shown in Sweet Sorbet, Starry Sky, Grey Granite and Crushed Curry or Daffodil Delight. If you are opting for Sun Prints DSP card, omit the Sweet sorbet flowers and stamp these instead with Starry Sky ink.
  6. Die cut these images.
  7. Adhere 14.5 x 4.9 cm piece of chosen DSP (Tea Boutique OR Sun Prints) to card front.
  8. On the Scalloped Contours die-cut and in Grey Granite ink, stamp foliage appoximately 5 contours up from bottom of the die-cut and toward the RHS of the piece.
  9. In Starry Sky Ink, stamp flower group over foliage.
  10. Adhere die-cut tea cup to this panel using Mini Dimensionals.
  11. Adhere additional flowers, stamped sprigs and lemon using glue and/or Mini Dimensionals.
  12. Adhere this panel/layer to the folded Z of the card front. I applied glue to LHS of my Scalloped Contours die-cut and used the scallops as my guide when laying it up on the Z.  Can you see that 4 scallops are attached to the Z.
  13. Adhere Grey Granite cardstock foliage die-cuts to top of this panel.  Adhere Greeting piece using Mini Dimensionals.
  14. Tie bow using either Baker’s Twine or Linen Thread and adhere to card front with a Mini Glue Dot.  I ties a double bow with the Linen Thread.
  15. Adhere your choice of Polished Dots.   
  16. Stamp any combination of images on the inside of the card.  I stamped the tea cup to match the image on the front of the card, and then decorated with some left-over die-cuts.  You might also notice that on front of the sample card, I added a few yellow hearts. I used dies from the Cup of Tea bundle and Tea Boutique DSP for these hearts.
