Tea for Two Heartfelt Creations Magnolias Tutorial for Wonderful Wednesday May 2024

Hello, Friends!  Would you like to join me as I share this Tea for Two Heartfelt Creations Magnolias Tutorial?  It’s Wonderful Wednesday and time to share our May 2024 Flower of the Month, so grab a cuppa and a snack and we’ll dive right in!

New Tea for Two Collection from Country Craft Creations in the House!

It seems like every time I do a little clean up in the Closet of Inspiration and Delight I give myself a stern reprimand about not buying any more paper until I’ve used up some of what I have. Inevitably, right at that same time someone will release a paper collection that causes my resolve to completely wilt.  That’s what  happened when Country Craft Creations released Tea for Two earlier this month.  One look at the gorgeous tea cups featured on this card had me placing the order as fast as my crafty little fingers could type it in.  (Is there a 12-step program for paper addiction somewhere?)

The truth of the matter is, I’m not the least big sad I added this collection to the stash.  As you will see in the video tutorial below, it’s completely scrumptious!

The Shaker Element


Here’s how I created the shaker element on this 5″ x 7″ top fold card:

  • First, cut out the 4″ x 6″ image of the stacked teacups.
  • Next, use a ruler and craft knife to cut the inside section of the image out of the frame.
  • Then fussy cut the teacups, back with chipboard and foam tape, and set aside.
  • Now, adhere a 4″ x 6″ panel of clear cardstock (acetate sheet) to the back of the empty frame.
  • Place 2 rows of 1/8″ foam strips around the back of the frame.
  • Mat a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ panel of patterned paper on larger mats of rose and teal cardstock.  Place sequins and beads in the center of the panel, then press the prepared shaker frame into the center of the panel.
  • Finally, adhere the teacups over the shaker window and proceed with finishing the card.
A Peek Inside

Add more patterned papers and a pocket to the card interior.  I used my envelope punch board to create a little tea wallet, then added that to the pocket along with a dressed up honey stick and a lovely little notecard.

If  you’d like to follow along as I stamp, emboss, color and arrange the magnolias for this card, then please enjoy this video tutorial.

Magnolias are already blooming here in North Carolina.  They add beauty and fragrance to these early summer days.  If you’d like to view another tutorial that uses a different style of magnolia bloom, you can find that tutorial HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends! I hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday and find time to make something beautiful today.
