Tea Cup Get Well Card with Pouch for Tea Bags


Today's card is a Get Well Card, but could easily be changed to a Mother's Day or Birthday Card. I used the "diaper fold" which has been around for awhile, but I have included pictures of how to do the folds if you want to see how it is done. The tea cup is cut using the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 Cricut cartridge, cut at 2-1/4 inches on the tag setting, p. 29. The "steam" heart is cut using the Type Candy Font Cricut Cartridge, p. 66, Better with Chocolate Shadow setting. I added a paper lace doily to the inside of the pouch and put two foil wrapped tea bags in the pouch. I added a die cut heart to the top corner of the pouch. For the teabag tag on the front, I just used a small punched out white tag and attached it with some crochet thread to the back of the teacup, which is popped up from the pouch with dimensional dots. Following is a list of supplies used for this cute little card:

Supplies Used:
Birthday Bouquet DSP from Stampin' Up
Blushing Bride cardstock from Stampin' Up
Have a Cuppa Embellishments (lemon slice) from Stampin Up
Embossing Folder for teacup - Cuttlebug A2 Birds & Swirls
Die Cut Heart - Hot Cocoa Cups Steel Dies from Die-namics (My Favorite Things)
Stamped image - Teeny Tiny Wishes from Stampin' Up
Ink - Blushing Bride and Rose Red from Stampin' Up
Paper Lace Doily - Stampin' Up
Cricut Cartridges - Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 and Type Candy Font
Punched Flower - EK Success Punch
FYI - Bigelow Teabags are nicely foil wrapped. Pouch holds 2 very comfortably.

Here are some photos of the process for folding the pouch, known as the "diaper fold."







I hope you will give this one a go! It goes together really quickly with only a glue dot to keep the front flap down. The rest of the card just stays together on its own. You will have fun with this one!

Thanks for stopping by this week. I will be back next week with a new card for you, back to Easter cards!
