Flower-Filled Teacup

Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter.  Ours was quite lovely.  Our newlyweds, Emily & Mike hosted this year.  The food was delicious and the company even better!

Today my card share is for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  Michelle chose such a soft and pretty color palette….


I really had a great time making this card.

This is called a side easel card and it is the first one I’ve made.  I found a few tutorials on Pinterest but had to alter the dimensions to fit the teacup image.

Along with using these soft subtle colors, I also used a few more of my favorite products.  The Cups & Kettle Framelits were used to cut the teacup.  I stamped the little flowers on the cup from the Bloomin Love stamp set in Versa Mark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  The sweet little flowers are punched using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch.  They are simply punched from the Subtles Designer Series Pack and then accented with Pearls.

The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set.

This card folds perfectly to fit in an A2 envelope for mailing.  Because of the flowers I will add extra postage but it is definitely worth it.

I am really pleased with the way this card turned out and will be making more of these easel cards.  I hope you enjoyed this as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by and remember that my gift to you for placing an order of $50 or more (before shipping & tax) from now through April is a package of Basic Pearls.  When placing an order, please provide your information so that I can send you this gift along with a handmade card.

Until next time….
