Just Add Ink #417 - Just Add 'T'

Another Friday and another Just Add Ink challenge. This week we are Just Adding 'T'.

A few weeks ago I made a wedding card as a custom order. The other part of the order was a card for the Kitchen Tea ..... perfect for this challenge. So a Teacup and saucer for a kitchen Tea!

This is a design I have made a few of over the years. My template is getting tatty but still works well. I simply trace my teacup template onto folded cardstock, with the top of the cup on the fold and cut it out. I always do a dodgy job of hand cutting the handle so I use an egg punch!

I thought the Lovely Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder would look great on this cup. A band of Rich Razzleberry and gold was all I needed. 

And as an added bonus it also fits into a standard C6 envelope. The Stampin' Up! envelopes are not only fabulous to stamp on but they are also great to emboss for a bit of class! A saucer to match is all you need!

Make sure you pop on over to the Just Add Ink page to see how all the other Design Team members added 'T'. Why not enter your own creation? We always love seeing them!


Product List


  1. Lou, love your teacup card! Can think of so many of my lady friends who would love to receive it. Would you tell me where a I could find a tea cup template for an A2card?

    1. Hi Kathy. I can't find my original template file but I know that I did hand draw the cup. I just found this link to a cup that is similar. You can resize it to fit any card using your computer. Hope that helps. I'd love to see what you come up with for your friends. Lou
