Yuletide Slimline Tea Party in a Box Tutorial
Hello, Friends! It’s Throwback Thursday and I have a dreamy Yuletide Slimline Tea Party in a Box Tutorial for you today. This is one of those special card creations that works as a gift, and as Christmas décor, too! I’ve dressed it up with some vintage crocheted lace and altered Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets.
How much do we love this romantic skating couple? Only in my dreams could I ever be as graceful as the fur-clad beauty featured on this 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ slimline card. This image was a scrap left after creating a vintage folio that I’ll be sharing with you soon. (Yes, it’s been a very busy week in the studio!) It’s hard for the camera to pick up the shimmer and sparkle of the embossing powder that I used to alter the chipboard, but hopefully you will see it more clearly in the video tutorial.
TIP: Alter the appearance of silver tone charms with a bit of Ivory Chalk paint. Dry brush the paint on the skates and snowflake charms. Let them dry , then lightly sponge with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Mist lightly with water, then dry again. A final brush of Ivory Chalk Paint lends a vintage, slightly grungy appearance that blends well with the card.
A Peek Inside
Here’s a peek at the inside of the card. There’s lots of room behind the flap page to write a message, a recipe, or a Christmas poem. You could also place a photo here.
The box pocket has room for a Christmas tea bag, honey stick, cookie packet, Ghirardelli Snowman, vintage gold and silver plated demitasse spoon, peppermint stick and a journal card. The back of the journal card is lined so you can write a note with ease.
