This sweet teacup card to make will make you – and your card recipient – smile! Bright and cheerful, with lots of yummy elements, I guarantee it will be a winner!
But I had to learn something along the way with this one! Let me tell you about that.
Before we get to the card itself, let’s see what I used as the base for my design.
Confession time! I usually don’t order the cards & envelopes in the catalogues. Do you?
I guess it’s because I think my designs might look a little “cookie cutter”, if you know what I mean? That I’ll end up with a design just like someone else since we both started with the same base.
Well, I think I have to change my tune!
This card was so easy to make! See my design tips below so you to see whether you might like to give them a try too.
But first, let’s see what we’re talkin’ about!
I loved how this one turned out!
Yes, a few different techniques and supplies, but worth it!

Jo’s Design Tips for Pre-Made Envelopes and Cards
Here are some things I found handy as I played with the pre-made cards and envelopes:
- Purchase coordinating ink colours. If you fall in love with certain suites in the catalogue, consider making sure you have the ink pad colours to match. It instantly will give your cards a professional look!
- Don’t be afraid to stamp on the card base itself. On this one I used Sweet Sorbet ink to stamp the small flowers and leaves right on top of the card.
- Think about pulling in other suite elements. The teacup is stamped on one of the Tea Boutique patterned papers which matched exactly, then cut out with the teacup shaped die!
- Coordinate with SU! colour suggestions. Tea Boutique is the only DSP in the catalogue to feature all 5 of the In Colors. So I knew if I used the Parakeet Party ink and metallic ribbon, it would only add to the overall effect.
- Use the envelope. A lovely decorated envelope is included. Make sure you send out your fun card with it.
