The most amazing teacup card ever. Seriously.

I am always grateful whenever anyone takes the time to send me a birthday card, especially since I am not the best about sending them myself! And when I received a birthday card in the mail from tea friend Mary Jane last week, I certainly had no idea of the cleverness contained within that envelope. It was something called a "Swing Card" from the Santoro Company in the UK!

And when I read her thoughtful greeting on the back and folded the card into position, these lovely teacups started sweetly swinging!

I can't even begin to imagine the paper engineering that it took to a) make such a card possible and b) make it so foolproof that the recipients couldn't manage to bungle it when setting up the card.

They even designed the perfect background images …

And the clever teaspoon "suspension" for the teacups …

And I wondered if it wasn't easier to make a teacup than to make a teacup card! Bravo, Santoro (a link to their Swing Cards is here), and thank you again, Mary Jane!

  5. Angela, this is an awesome card. The pink cup reminds me of the pink jacket your sweetheart had on a few posts ago when I saw both of you dressed up. I could not comment at the time. You know I love photos of you and your handsome husband.

  6. What a neat card, Angela - I am going to check out the link. Thank you so much for sharing, Joanie

  7. Definitely a cool card, not something I'd attempt. ;-)
