Afternoon Tea Card Class - Cardinal Colours

Toady I teaching this card class at the Cardinal Colours Autumn Weekend Crop. 2012 is a big year for Britain, with the Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. What better way to celebrate than with another great British tradition – Afternoon Tea?

This Card class has many different techniques involved to make a pretty set of five tea party themed cards. The generous kit means there are enough products to decorate many more cards too.

Everything from jam and cream to tea pots and doilies, create cards with stamping, decoupage, die cutting and more. Many of the products supplied are from the Dovecraft's Tea Party Collection. 

I decided to use a variety of different techniques while sticking to one range of papers. I picked the pretty papers, stamps, buttons, gems & pearls, glittered decoupage images and bakers twine from Papermania's Tea Party Collection.

These are the 12" x 12" papers

8" x 8" Decoupage paper pad

Border stamps

Other stamps

Heart doilies

Circular doilies

Baker's Twine


Adhesive gems and pearls

I used the two sets of stamps which included some border stamps and some ribbons.

Here are the individual cards:

1. Cake Stand Card - using decoupage papers, patterned papers, embossing folder, Cricut for card black with aperture and greeting, gems, button and baker' twine.

2. Stack of Teacups Card - Patterned papers, Decoupage sheet, Martha Stewart corner punch, gems, Cricut, baker's twine, Craft Creations card blank.

I also made some additional cards which can be made with the left over bits from the kits and some additional items.
