Today’s tutorial uses the Crafter’s Companion You’re so sweet stamp set with gorgeous rose gold accents to make a pretty card.
In this blog post, I’ll share the tutorial and supply list for you to create this project.
I love everything about going out for afternoon tea.
The fresh crisp white tablecloth and napkins, soft music, flowers on the table and of course the 3 tiers of delicious cakes and dainty sandwiches.
Then there’s the presentation of the box of tea to choose from. It has to be good old English Breakfast tea with cake and sandwiches though!
Afternoon tea at the Ritz in London is most definitely on my bucket list, but then Fortnum and Mason and the Savoy all look very special too. I live around an hour away from London so maybe I should just start saving. I do have a rather big birthday coming up this year!
I wanted the card I’m sharing to evoke the same feeling of timeless elegance.

I fully endorse the Birthday Cake calories don’t count sentiment. It’s always someone’s birthday somewhere anyway!
With beautiful rose gold glitter accents, soft watercolour, flowers and cake it turned out just as I had hoped.
I’ll be sharing a good watercolour pencil tip with you in the method a little further down!
To create this card you’ll need:
Crafter’s Companion Rose Gold Paper Pad
Dovecraft Glitter Pad
Also used, is Pink Frog Super Smooth Card
6×6 cards and envelopes
- Trim paper to 5.5×5.5” (My card actually measures 5.75×5.75, if your card is a true 6×6” trim your paper to 5.75×5.75”)
- Set the strip of paper you cut off aside to use later.
- Stamp image using embossing pad onto white card and heat emboss.
- Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment inside the card.
- Colour the image using Nuvo watercolour pencils.
- Scribble the colour onto scrap card and pick the colour up from there with your brush. This also allows you mix the colours if you wish.
The Pink Frog super smooth card handles most mediums that you throw at it but with that said, it’s not a watercolour card so go gentle with the amount of water you use.
For this card I kept the colours purposely muted. You can use the pencil dry once your image has dried to add a little more definition.
- Fussy cut the image out.
- Die-cut the oval once in white card and once in rose gold glitter card.
- Glue patterned paper to card front.
- Add the white oval with foam pads.
- Glue the glitter oval which will fit perfectly with the white oval.
- Add the stamped image to the white oval using foam pads.
- Take the strip of patterned paper you set aside earlier and glue it to the inside of the card. It is easier to leave it longer and trim it once it’s stuck down. This will ensure a perfect fit.
