I have lots of friends that I share tea with – in fact coming round for a coffee, or a tea, is an enjoyable way to spend time. This card would be perfect for a friend as a birthday or ‘anyday’ card.
I am a huge fan of anyday cards, sometimes I feel they can carry more love and cheerfulness than a birthday or specific occasion card. It’s great to have a handmade birthday card but you are probably going to receive quite a few cards on that day. Whereas an anyday card can arrive when you are least expecting it and will cast a huge ray of sunshine onto your day!
This card was made using the Gruffies CD which is so useful for all ages and both sexes. The aperture containing tea was made by attaching two suitably sized pieces of backing paper onto a piece of acetate, leaving a gap between the two. Then pour some tea leaves onto the acetate central panel and edge around the tea panel with 2mm foam tape. Finally stick a sheet of white card over the top to seal the tea panel. This can now be added to your card. Decorate the cut edges of the tea panel with cut out pieces of frame from a topper like the one used as the main focal point. Any tea bag will do but if you know they have a favourite… choice is easy!
