An English Tea Party

This collection of four cards is inspired by an English Tea Party, brimming cups of tea and yummy treats.

1. A Slice of Cake: Why settle for a scone when you can have a nice big slice of cake? Ingredients for this delicious cake include bugle beads, buttons and fabric trimmings. For the centre of this cake I used a pink ric rac to create the jam and a lace trim as the cream/frosting. Ribbon would also be great but I liked the wave in the trims that made it appear more lifelike. You could even add a candle. I hope you find this design as sweet as I do.

2. Cute Cupcake: Sugar and Sweet with a cherry on top. :) I admit i went a bit overboard on the sprinkles (bugle beads) but that's just how my cakes look, I always get over-excited with the decorations. And a sweet button cherry to top it off. The font used here is called 'crafty girls', I downloaded it for free from this website, It's just a cute and bubbly font, ideal for card making.

3. Tea for three: Our penultimate card. :) Cups and saucers arranged in a toppled tier like fashion that reminds me of the Mad Hatter's teaparty. These are made from left over wrapping paper scraps and are framed using a lace trim.

4. Teapot: Where would a good old fashioned English tea party be without a cute teapot? Made from wrapping paper and completed with little paper daisies and green beads. Ohh fancy. :)

Here is a picture of the complete collection. If you have a go at making any of these cards please comment and let me know how you got
on. I would love to know your thoughts. :)
