I’m not a huge hot tea drinker or coffee drinker (although I love the smell of it) but I do know that a warm cup of tea screams cozy and warm! This card makes me think of warm, cozy, loving feelings and that is sure to make you smile! 🙂 This one was fun to make and give since it was for my Mom’s Birthday last month!!!
For this card, I started with a Whisper White card base. I used the Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper for the tea pot! I cut out the mug, tea pot, heart shaped steam and tea bag using the Cups & Kettle Framelits. I stamped on the cup and stamped the tea bag (prior to die cutting it) with the A Nice Cuppa Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 15%) On the mug, I stamped the heart in Basic Gray. The tea bag was also stamped in Basic Gray. I placed one end of the Linen Thread behind the tea bag and added a Stampin’ Dimensional to the back to hold it on. I placed the other end of the thread on the back of the mug and added a Stampin’ Dimensional to the back to hold it in place. I added a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the mug and attached it to the card front! I adhered the steam with the Fine Tip Glue Pen! This is the perfect adhesive for those small intricate pieces!!! Love it! For the greeting, I used the Botanicals for You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set!
This is the inside with some hearts and then I inked up the greeting with a Basic Gray Marker so I could omit the “and” on the stamp. I wanted it to say “heart/love” spending time with you but the stamp coordinates with another stamp and says “and.” No problem here since I just omitted it! Love that!
