Creative Card: Teacup

I had so much fun making the "fishbowl" card for National Scrapbook day that I thought I would try and "weld" another shape card using my Gypsy.  I made a few to give away as a set, but I couldn't find anything around the house that would make a cute package for them.  If I figure something out, I will update this post with a picture.

Materials Used:

  • Teacup is cut at 3 3/4" from Once Upon a Princess  I "welded" two images together using my Gypsy.  (Don't forget that you need to "flip" one of the images - so everything matches once the card is folded.)  
  • Flower is cut at 2 1/4" -the top two layers are attached with pop dots to give the flower a bit more dimension
  • Patterned paper from K & Co.
  • Tsukineko Pigment Ink - Coffee Bean
  • Martha Stewart permanent pen - chestnut
I lined all of the envelopes...for directions - you can check out THIS post.  It's very easy and makes the card a bit more special.

Also - a big thank you to Liz from Liz's Paper Loft - if a ton of site updates just showed up in your dashboard, it is because I had messed up the settings on my site feed.  I think I fixed it this morning!  Thank you Liz!!!
