Thanks to everyone for all the sweet emails and notes to see if I'm still alive and well! With so much upheaval at work, I haven't been motivated to craft (serious derangement for me!). I finally got some Mojo back the other night because I needed two special thank you notes for colleagues who helped with my daughter's exhibition project for school and had nothing appropriate in my stash (hard to believe actually!).
I have been trying to use some of the paper stash I have been hoarding over the years, so I broke out a pretty pack from SEI called "Juliette" for this card. I wanted some delicate colors for this tea themed card so this fit the bill perfectly.
The teapot was stamped on patterned paper and cut out, with the bird paper pieced from the peach solid paper. I colored the leave with markers because the leaves were too small to cut out without my glasses! The image background was stamped using a set from Waltzing Mouse, which works perfectly with nested dies. I stamped one on white and the other on the solid peach, then punched a white circle for the middle- this layered approach gives it more visual interest. The greeting was computer generated and punched out with the Modern Label punch.
I'm going to pack up some nice tea and a Starbucks gift card inside a mug as a thank you for their time and patience-LOL! Make someone's day today and tell them they're tea-rrific!
