Time for tea and some crafty goodness

I love to look at magazines for inspiration in scrapbooking and cardmaking. Once again I turned to the pages of Paper Crafts and decided to make one of the cards. I didn't have all of the same supplies, so I used what I had to make it work. I attached the crochet trim first with strong adhesive tape (Scor tape) and then stitched it to give it the right effect.

Here is what I used...
  • Cricut Cartridge - Child's First Year (I ADORE this cart.  It has every sweet, innocent, childish silhouette image you could ask for) Teapot
  • Mulberry Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • A retired SU stamp set - You Warm My Heart
  • Crochet trim from Hobby Lobby
  • SU cardstock Blush Blossom and Bravo Burgundy
  • DCWV Designer Paper (I think...)
  • Making Memories Edge Punch
  • Flat Pearls 
  • Sewing Machine and Thread (I NEVER have luck with this...just happened to try it on this card and it turned out. The "tablecloth" just had to be sewn, right?)
  • Oh, and some ink...Antique Linen (Tim Holtz) and SU Basic Black
Ok, I think that covers it.  Thanks for looking!

  1. I'm so excited...I just found that cart for $9.99 and Emily and I just went to our first Tea Party :) I didn't even know it had a Tea Pot on it!

    LOVE your card! I wish you didn't live so far away so you could teach me to make cards...I have the hardest time trying to make them!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!
