These cards would make a great accompaniment for a gift of special tea or a teapot or cup, and are perfect for morning or afternoon tea invitations.
All you need are some pretty papers or fabrics and few embellishments and off you go!

|SIMPLE PARCHMENT CARD|
It doesn't have to be that way, however, and this example shows what is possible for the first time crafter, requiring only a piece of parchment paper, a white pen, an embossing stylus and a soft rubber mat. The pattern comes from Embossing Paper the Easy Way (available from Regal). Just trace the picture with a white pen, when the ink is dry turn it over, retrace and add detail with the embossing stylus. Add an insert and you're done.
Balance out the weight of the outer card and insert so that it will stand up e.g. thin parchment with thick insert etc. There are many ways to attach the insert to the outer card. A little double sided tape on the inner back panel will do the trick, but for this example I've chosen to tie it together with some 3mm satin ribbon.

|SIDE-STEPPER OWL CARD|
The owls are from a Kaiser paper called "HOOT" from the "Hello Sunshine" collection that came out some time ago. They have a glossy finish, and have been fussy cut from a 12 x 12 page.
The first card base is a side stepper from Regal Craft Cards (ST1). In addition to the owls, Marilyn has added skeleton and paper leaves, green paper roses and handmade papers.
The second example uses a soft cream Regal deckle oval card-base (OVD3). Marilyn has added some little red paper flowers, with silver-grey pearls have been added to the centre. Small silver rhinestones make the owl's eyes sparkle,
