Tea on Tuesday...T stands for Twangy Card!

Hello There!  

Happy Happy Tuesday Everyone! Yes that means you - my Blogging Friend.

As I mentioned today is Tuesday and I am sharing my latest project with you, whilst having a cup of Glengettie Tea!  Of course, this is linked up by the magic of t'internet with my friend Elizabeth

So today's project is a card I have made for my friend.  She likes pink!  Not that you could tell, right!  I actually started this card at the Crop with my buddy Di (who also likes pink) who showed me how to make the base.  The flowers and flutterbies I added when I got home.

So it kinda looks all innocent here...

And then you open it...
The morning was dull and grey here so you cannot get just how bright these pinks and yellows are.  I just love it.  Really old K&Co papers which I had free for subscribing to a magazine that has long ago become a distant memory.  
A straight on picture.  Again, the light isn't good and too damp to photograph it outside.

Now the envelope is better as I took the photo from above.  Now these papers are VERY old and quite flimsy but they are just great to use up making envelopes with the We R Memory Keepers tool.
And of course, my cup.  It is a Cath Kidstone which my Buddy bought me for my Birthday a few years ago. It is quite a bucket size but perfick for my morning brew!

Now as well as linking this card up to the Tea on Tuesday, I am also linking the card with the Snippets Playground (a few used here including the white card and the "hello" piece - recycled from a gift card some time ago) and also the Butterfly Challenge, Butterflies, wet embossing and flowers.  Hurrah!  Three linkies.

Thanks for calling by. It is persisting it down with rain outside so I guess I shall be staying in now rather than get wet!

Hi Hettie,

I have seen similar cards to the one you made and shown here. It was called "card in a box" or something like that. But, after seeing yours, I am re-inspired! Happy T-day!

MaryH said...

So loving these box cards, and you had a super teacher explaining the how-to's. Love the pink and all the pretty embellies & then I read about the free papers from the magazine. Lucky you, as they were perfect for this pretty card. Your friend will definitely be 'in the pink' when opening this special card. Loved your tea cup too! Bet the tea tastes much more delicious coming from such a cute cup. TFS & Hugs

That card is wonderful - I must have a go at one! I love your mug, too (although anything CK has my vote!) Chris # 14 x

This card is stunning. I know what great work you do, because I now own some of yours, but I had NO idea what you are capable of when it comes to those pop-up cards. Photos were good enough for me to see all the lovely details, if not the brilliant colors.

For someone who never gets out to shop, I also know Cath Kidstone. Lovely mug you shared this T Tuesday.

Hello and Happy T Day!! What an awesome and pretty pop-up card. Those seem to be the trend now, not sure I could have the patience but glad others like you do.
How cute your mug is! Sorry to hear about the rain, it's on/off here too.
Have a great day and thank you for sharing!

My friend Debbie was chatting (I say chatting but it was actually an e-mail) about pop up box cards and I believe she was describing the style of card you have made.
This is stunning! The surprise element of opening it to reveal the bouquet of flowers is so beautiful.
Wishes

Oh well done Sam!! You finished off the box card really beautifully - there'll be no stopping you now :) They do get a bit addictive I suspect.

Sorry I'm a bit late visiting - playing catch up here :)
