Warm up someone’s day with this fun and easy teacup card with a pocket for a tea bag!

World Cardmaking Day is the first Saturday in October every year, and this year I’m celebrating with this warm and cheerful greeting card that holds a bag of tea. Like my easy layer greeting cards, this is a fun and simple project you can make today — it’ll bring joy to you and whomever you gift it to! Just cut, assemble, and tuck in your favorite tea packet or sachet. This tea bag card will show someone you love them so matcha! Brew can do it! Give it a chai! (Ha ha, see what I did there?)

My free SVG cut file for this tea cup card is super easy to use! Just download, upload to Cricut Design Space, and go! I’ve already set the score line and attached it to your base card, so there’s no need to ungroup and attach yourself. When finished, this card is 5.5″ wide by 8″ high.

Once your card file is prepared, click the green "Make It" button in the upper right hand corner.

On the next screen you will see three different colored mats. The top should be gold, the second should be blue, and the last one should be pink.

IMPORTANT: Make sure to choose the right material/tool for each layer before cutting.

Gold Mat: Choose "Foil Poster Board"

Blue Mat: Choose "Heavy Cardstock - 100lb" and select the appropriate scoring tool (this depends on your machine and your tools. I used the scoring stylus, but you can also use the single or double scoring wheel. Also make sure this is loaded into your machine.

Pink Mat: Choose "Medium Cardstock - 80lb"

* Of course if you choose different paper types, colors and weights select your materials and tools accordingly.


After cutting your materials it's time to bring your creation to life! First peel all of your materials from the mat carefully.

  1. I’d like help with tea cup card. I really don’t want to buy a font. How do I use one fromDS instead?

    1. You don’t need to buy the font to make this card, Suzette! It’s already a part of the design. Just upload the file to Design Space and cut away! 🙂

    1. In order to cut on your Joy, Linda, you would need to re-size it so small that it would no longer accept a tea bag! However, you CAN download the PDF version of the file and print that off on your computer printer. You would need to cut it out using a craft knife or scissor instead of your Cricut, but you could still create this cool card! 😍
