Tea Time Pocket Card

Good Day. I am so excited to share this with you today here at The Bug Bytes and She's A Sassy Lady. This little pocket card is such a fun little card that you will find yourself making it over and over again with lots of little sayings stuffed with all kinds of goodies. I designed this card to be one of the cards we will be making at a card party on the 13th of January. I used my Gypsy Woman to weld all the pieces and letters together. Please look at the first video to learn how to do this.


This is very simple to make as long as you take the time to plan ahead what you are going to do. After I did that it was simple! Now please give it a try on your own.


Now wasn't that simple to put together? This is one of the 3 cards that I am bringing to my card party. Being the hostess I felt that I should make a little extra for the ladies to make so they will actually walk away with extra cards! I will show you another on Saturday so make sure you come back then. I have been cutting and crafting all day, I actually cut out 24 cards! I can't wait for the party to see what the ladies have designed. I promise I will take plenty of photos so you can see what everyone did, okay?

 This is the inside of the card. As you can see there is plenty of room to place the tea bags and write a little note. And you can always write a long note and place it in the pocket with the tea bags.

Here is a close up so you can see the glittery letters, I think they really look cool, don't you?
Well I sure hope you enjoyed today's post. Click HERE if you would like a copy of this Gypsy file. I know you will have fun with this card and it will become one of your favorites I am sure. I challenge you to make one of these cards and I will add a link up for you so you can share what you did. Oh before I forget if you use my file know that it will make 8 cards. Cut the base of the card out 8 times and the letters and the teapots will cut 8 in one sweep.
Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me to share  with you.

What a wonderful idea! I have never tried anything like this. I have to do it the hard way and make a pocket that will stick to the front. Hee! Hee! It's like you always say... Keep it simple... Sassy! I just love this!

cute card. I am not able to enlarge the screen anymore. The margins are 2 close... Can hardly see the project with the ad's flashing on the bottom of the screen. Trying so hard not to miss a thing. Teapots are my weakness no that is a lie everything scrap related is.....
tnks sweetie.

Carolyn said...
