Tea Party Card Set Featuring Botanical Tea

Posted by Graphic 45 04/17/2018 63 Comment(s) Cards,Tutorials,Videos,

Hello, G45ers!

 We invite you to join us for a delightful Tea Party Card Set blog post.  Magda Cortez, shares her pro-tips on how to elevate your papercrafts, and go out of your comfort zone to try something new. So even if pastels are not for you, give Botanical Tea - Deluxe Collector’s Edition a try, it is so chic and easy to use.  Following Magda's stunning cards, you will find three tutorial videos from our very own, Aimee Filimoehala, where she too uses our Botanical Tea collection to show you how to create a card set with decorative box, and a waterfall mini.  These videos are a part of our Club G45 - Vol. 4, which has already sold out for the month.  Be sure to mark your calendar for Vol. 5 that drops on May 10th.  Now, let's get this party started!  

Tea Party Card Set

By Magda Cortez


Hi All.. Believe it or not, I went out of my comfort side and I did these cards using Pastels! I’m not into pastels but Botanical Tea - Deluxe Collector’s Edition invite me to use it! And I really love it!

I fussy cut some of the flowers and embellish with Petaloo pink flowers they match perfectly!


Inside I use one of the cards and there I can write the details for my tea party!



I the blues and pinks are very soft and they give the fresh look of spring! OMG! Spring is around the corner can you believe that?


Tip: You can use different textures and you can have more dimension like I did by using seam binding to compliment it perfectly and give the texture I was looking for.




I really love these cards and I need to make more.. I’m thinking in a Spring Tea Party! I hope you like it and get a little of inspiration…

LOVE SunKissed!! Getting back into papercrafts and card making after a 5 year hiatus, and although G45 has been an all time favorite for many years, I think this is my all time #1 (so far-lol).
