Tea-riffic

Hi all.  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.  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.  Here's the front of the card...you can't tell it's an easel just yet.




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.

And here it is opened:



Miss Kate's files always have such great layering to them.  I just love how dimensional this card looks.


If you'd like more details on the construction of the card or more pictures, just visit me at my blog.  In the meantime have a tea-riffic day!
