Cup of Tea Stamp Set for today’s Sunday Sketch. Each Sunday I create a card using one of our card sketches.
You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can see by the sketch and card I changed the square with a circle. The sketch is a starting point and you don’t need to follow it exactly. I omitted the ribbon around the cardfront. Let your imagination run wild!
Tea cups bring back wonderful memories of my mother’s collection. After her passing I kept about a dozen and when I host my afternoon friends I often use them. Does anyone collect teacups anymore?
Cut of Tea Stamp Set is part of the Tea Boutique Suite which includes the coordinating Tea Cup Dies and the preprinted cards and envelopes. Saturday I will be sharing how I used the Santa Express Cards and Envelopes to create some quick and easy Christmas Cards. The precut, printed, scored and matching envelopes make card making a breeze.
