Tea Time

A PTI forum friend, Valeria, was looking for inspiration and ideas to create tea party invitations. Sipping tea in the spring makes me think of soft colors and dainty details. Valeria has 30 invitations to make so I tried to use lots of die cuts and pay attention to supply amounts. Unfortunately, I do not have the Time for Tea stamp set, but I know the cup design is very similar to Everyday Classics. Hope you are ALL inspired to sip tea! ;)

Here is the Tea Time "recipe":
  • Cut Kraft cardstock to 5.25 x 9.25". Score at 4.25"
  • Trim Aqua Mist CS to 5.25" and use lg. Edger #2 die. Stamp with sentiment. Trim and adhere to bottom of card.
  • Cut 1.5" x 5.25" strip of Distressed Dots paper in Fine Linen and adhere. Note: This yields 6 strips per sheet and 36 strips total from one paper pack.
  • Stamp largest flourish from Fancy Flourishes onto right side.
  • Add Plum Pudding twill and Chocolate Baker's twine at seams.
  • Create a Parisian Doily from Lavender Moon CS. Optional: Sponge lightly with white ink around edges.
  • Using Limitless Layers #1 dies to create a flat layer or fold into a medallion.
  • Stamp tea cup onto 1.75" circle and lightly sponge edges with Chamomile tea dye.
  • Embellish with Plum Pudding buttons. Optional: Use the new Button Dies to create flatter buttons if you are concerned about the good 'ole USPS.

The tea cup is one of few images that I like...I'm not an image girl...but that one is so fun...and I love cutting it out too. I love the addition of the flourish for some added interest without being too distracting.
