This week we have started our Christmas cards in classes. I wanted to share this one with you.
With the Lights Aglow Specialty paper and Trimming the Tree stamp set it makes for a gorgeous Christmas Card. It has just that bit of Gold to make it elegant don’t you think?
The diecut for the sentiment actually comes from the Tree Trimmings Dies. These are available for only this month as a bonus with the Perfect Partners Promotion. They have some great sentiment dies and tree dies and little ornaments. I will share more with the stamps and dies shortly.
I have been playing a lot with the Adventurous Journey stamp set lately. It’s such a great one for the boys cards. It was fun to use this in class last week too.
I wanted to try something a little different. I have noticed Book Binding Fold cards around and thought that would work well.
Here is the card.
The kayaker was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. For the sentiment I stamped the words on the Balmy Blue card and Crushed Curry Card. Then diecut them with the long sentiment die in the Sending Dies. It was easy to just trim them down.
I find that a lot easier than trying to squeeze a sentiment on a thin strip of card.
The paper is from the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper pack which is a Host Reward in the Mini Catalogue. It’s great paper by the way. It has such a range of colours and prints. Why not take a closer look at it.
This is the inside.
I think I will just have to put together a video soon for it. So stay tuned on that.

Following from the last post about my Winter Crafternoon, today I wanted to show you the projects that everyone got to make.
Everyone received a pack of the Tea Boutique Cards and Envelopes in their Goodie Bag that they could create the cards with. They could take the rest home to create more. I shared other projects with them of card ideas using the Cards and Envelopes as well.
These are the 2 projects.
The colours use the lovely 2022-2024 In Colors of Tahitian Tide, Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party.
The Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper matches so well with these colours and products too.
I cut all the elements for the card and everyone got to stamp and cut some of the images. Trying to be more Environmentally conscious rather than packing all the kits for the cards in Cello bags I made up little pouches using the Envelope Punch Board with pages from the retiring January to June Mini Catalogue.
The Tea Boutique Suite Collection is a lovely group of products and can make some very quick cards. See it in my store -> HERE.

Today’s video is a fun card I think. It’s a Pocket Front card.
It’s a standard size card and with a little folding and scoring creates a pocket in the front. Just the size for a tea bag, Gift Card or even a small chocolate.
I have a video to show you how to make it but also have the measurements below for you so you can recreate your own.
Here is the card for you. We have some different angles so you get an idea of it.
I used the Tea Boutique Collection for this card. Quite an appropriate one to include a Tea Bag in the pocket.
Below is the view from the front with the card standing up. It can stand well just on the point.
Inside. I added a piece of white card so there is room to write.
Check the video out below.
The original idea came from Splitcoaststampers website -> HERE.
CREATE YOUR OWN POCKET FRONT CARD
Follow along with the video to see the scoring and folding of the card.
Base card 14.8cm x 21cm Score on the long side at 10.5cm
5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Score on the long side at 4 1/4″
On the long side place the left hand edge at the 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ point on the Paper Trimmer. Mark in pencil at the little channel on the Trimmer. Alternatively use a ruler to measure in 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ from the left hand edge and mark the point.
Turn card clockwise 1/4 turn. Mark halfway on this side which will be 7.4cm or 2 3/4″.
Score an angled line from the centre mark on the short side to the mark on the long side. Repeat the angled line from the centre to the mark on the other long side.
Fold on the score lines and fold in at the angles. Adhere to 2 angled folds down with tape.
Cut Designer Series Paper to 10cm x 10cm 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.
Cut the piece at an angle from one corner to the other. Keep one triangle as a large piece. Cut the other triangle in 2 to have 2 half triangles.
Adhere the large piece to the front of the card.
White card for inside measures 14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.
Adhere the 2 smaller triangles on each of the bottom corners. Adhere the white card inside the base card.
Decorate as you wish to.
I hope you get to make one. Let me know how you go.
