I’ve been wanting to use this Tea Pot and coordinating Stacked Tea Cups for a while now. With Mother’s Day coming up next month, it was a perfect time for me to use them for my Miss Kate Cuttables design team post. I used the combination to make this easel card:
Making an easel card is pretty easy once you know where to score and fold. In this case, I created a mirror image above the base of the teapot. Then I slid the top piece down so the pieces overlap (this is where the fold will be) and welded the two pieces. I created a score line across the middle of the card and another half way between that score and the top. As I want to have a full teapot on the front, I also cut a single base…and created an internal offset to use for my panel inside.
Then I cut all the pieces of the teapot using DCWV textured card stock. Here’s the card before it’s opened and set up as an easel. Miss Kate’s files always have such great layering to them
Here’s the card, opened fully, so you can see the sentiment. I cut only one of the stacked tea cups using the same card stock. I tucked a little tea bag under the top layer with Baker’s Twine.
Here’s a view from the side, so you can see how the easel sits.
