Teacup Tea Holder for My Sheri Crafts

This week's theme at My Sheri Crafts is "Warm Wishes", basically anything to keep warm in this cold wintry months--hot cocoa, warm soups, baked goods, and in my case, a favorite brand of tea to share with a friend.

I used a 5"x7" blank piece of card as my base. The papers are from DCWV's Linen Closet and Martha Stewart. I used an eyelet border punch from Martha Stewart to mimic a tablecloth. The alpha stickers are from Webster's Pages, and the die cut for the background was made using a Spellbinder's die. I used a border embossing folder from Cuttlebug to add dimension to the extra space beside the word "enjoy". The teapot was cut at 3" and the teacup which was cut at 1 1/2" were images cut using the Cricut cartridge A Child's Year.
The teacup on the inside page was cut at 3", and it's the perfect size to hold a packet. A gift card could also fit in the space. I glued down the saucer and pop-dotted the teacup to make a pocket for the packet (pun intended). :-) I used a Viva Decor Pearl pen to add swirls and pearl dots on both the cover and inside page.


  1. Peachy,
    This is so beautiful. I love the colors and the embossing. I have got to get one of those Viva Decor Pearl Pens. Everytime I see one used, I just love it. And how wonderful that the inside teacuo holds a teabag. What a greatway to create a "gift card".

  2. Peachy, I love how you made the inside of your card match the outside! Love the cut for the teabag! Love that embossing folder you used, and the MS punch! I am going to have to look into the Viva Decor Pearl Pen! I have never heard of it before! Beautiful card Peachy!

  3. This is fantastic! I love the colors, the whole pocket is just one of the best cards I've seen!

  4. Peachy -- this is beyond just 'peachy' -- pun very much intended (sorry, couldn't resist)! Honestly, this is sooo GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE everything you've done here -- another classy/elegant card from our DT gals today! LOVE those papers and your many perfect details!!!
    I too sooo want a Viva Decor Pearl Pen -- guess we need to put the bug in Sheri's ear, huh?! ;~)

  5. Beautiful card Peachy! Love the papers and colors. The teapot and cup are so cute! Love the inside and the way you made the pocket! Your details are always so beautiful!
