Hug in a Cup Tea Themed Card Folio with Authentique Gracious
Hello, Friends! How about a hug in a cup this Monday morning? I have the sweetest tea themed card folio made with Authentique Gracious to share with you this morning.
This little 5″ x 5 1/2″ tea themed card folio is made with scraps from other Gracious projects I’ve been making this fall. I have to tell you…I am in love with this collection. It is so warm and nostalgic that I can’t seem to stop playing with it! This resulted in a lovely little stack of off cuts, extra doilies, die cut teacups and bits and pieces that were begging to be put to good use. So, I did!
You all know how much I love my tea, so I decided to make one more tea themed card folio with the lovely vintage teapots and teacups pattern from the collection. Stamped sentiments come from a lovely Penny Black tea stamp set that I will link below in the supply list.
Hug in a Cup Tea Themed Card Folio: Double Z Fold Card
Would you like me to do a tutorial for the double z fold card base? Wish granted! You’ll find a project tour with tips and tricks as well as a video tutorial below. It’s such a fun way to make a card. It just opens and opens and opens again, giving you lots of room to add paper pretties.
This is what the inside of the card looks like when fully opened. The center pocket holds a little tea bag and blank card where you can add your own personal greeting.
But the really fun thing about this folio design is that the back side is also fully decorated. How fun would it be to set this card out on your fall mantel, or even your Thanksgiving table?
