Just for Fun - Tea Cards

Postcards were fun hope you enjoyed them.    This is Neet's last May challenge and she has picked a cracker to close May with.   Tea Cards

Do you remember those packets of loose tea and between the wrappers there would be one of these little cards to collect.   There were so appealing to children and so informative.  I had complete forgotten them until Neet proposed this challenge.   They are a specific size, 2 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches with a white border framing the image.   Had a lot of fun putting these together the images are heat embossed the ends of my fingers knew all about it!

Looking forward to your different Tea Cards linked back to us at Just for Fun.

  2. Hey Zoe, I love the clean lines of these- and that size would be fun to create on. I remeber as a kid going through my dads collection of these from when he was a kid!

  3. Hi Zoe

    Yes, I remember those Tea Cards and we used to stick them all into little numbered albums. But unlike the cards the kids pay to collect today you were always guaranteed to be able to get them all .. .. unless it was just that Mum and Dad drank lots of tea!!

    I wonder why they are now and which of us kids got to take them with us when we left home. It wasn't me!!

    I love the ones you have made here. Gorgeous colours.

    In traditional style I hope you have added a description of the picture on the back and given each of them a number LOL!!

    Love Jules xx

  6. Lovely subtle pastel colours and the fringe around the edge just sets them off nicely.
