Peek-a-Boo Tent Fold Card - You're My Cup of Tea

This card is a Peek-a-Boo Tent Fold card and it is surprisingly easy to create but the folds must be crisp or it won't stay in place. This card folds down to a long 4x8 card - even 4x4 if you fold it all together. That also depends how far out of the card the front images are when it is collapsed - mine fit within the folded card. The link for instructions can be found here

I used a sheet of patterned paper from the Mix-In paper pack - Canary yellow in colour. A good contrasting colour was blue. The card base was folded and then the patterned paper was adhered. The easel component of the card is created separately and then added to the front. I chose a teapot and teacup. I had to add the flower as something had to hold the easel portion in place. I stamped the patterns inside the teapot and cup and then coloured them, also adding shimmer to the centres of the small flowers and on the large flower in the front. The two sentiments were stamped and mounted on a stitched circle first and then a regular circle. Finally a small bow was added at the top of the card.
