Tea Bag Cards – Crate Paper

Today I am sharing some pretty interactive cards I made using the Maggie Holmes Flourish collection by Crate Paper! I remembered that I had downloaded a tea bag shape from the silhouette store some time ago and thought that would be a fun jumping off point for an interactive card! As I was looking through the Flourish collection I spotted three little tea stickers!! That sealed the deal for me and made it so easy to pick papers and items to go on each card.

I started first with the Chamomile Tea sticker the white wild roses on the Greenhouse paper went beautifully with the chamomile flowers so I cut the tea card from that paper. I decorated the front with white and green ephemera and stickers and made sure to include a little bit of yellow! I chose a Love You sentiment from the sticker sheet.

These little teapots are so sweet! I would love to have a collection of them! I tucked in one of the gold foil leaves for a little eye-catching sparkle behind the chamomile tea jar!

Next up is the English Rose Tea card. I think this one is my favourite! I chose the Emma paper for it’s delicate little blooms and cut the tea card on my silhouette. I added the illustrated black and white ephemera as the base so that the tea jar would show up nicely! The antique fair ticket is cut from the Always paper, I antiqued the edges with a bit of ink.

The “heart you” sentiment seemed to be perfect for the Rose Tea card! You can see that I added a bit of machine stitching on the cards for subtle detail.

Oh those lazy days drinking Summertime Tea! In my dreams!! I love how fresh and pretty this card turned out. I trimmed the black and white card into a tag shape to fit the tea card and decorated it with a pretty yellow floral sticker, another ticket from the Always paper and a fussy cut heart from the Poppy paper I cut the card from.

The detail on these tiny tea canister stickers is so lovely! You can see the stitching under the tea jar (which I popped up on foam dots) and the inked ticket to make it look even more vintage.

These cards were really easy to make, with just a few folds and pretty decorations. To further customize them I cut the matching tea label on the end of the strings out of the same papers and decorated each one with a tiny vintage ticket. You can fill the cards with individually packaged tea bags or add loose tea, they would smell divine!!

I hope you enjoyed these cards! You could easily make the same little tea canister clusters on the front of a traditional card as well!
