Tea for Two - My Creative Inspirations Debut!
I hope you are having a great weekend! I'm happy to share this teapot card with you today as my debut DT project for the Creative Inspirations Challenge blog! Our challenge is to make a card that is Anything But Square (or rectangle) and our sponsor this week...Fantastic Ribbons!
My card actually started as a digital stamp...can you believe that?! I found it for free on the web a long time ago, but unfortunately have no information about it to share with you. I printed it out at a size that fits a 4x6 piece of paper and cut it out making a few adjustments in order to make it a usable template. I traced it onto the designer paper and cut it out facing in both directions so the inside of the teapot matches the outside! Then, I trimmed the template down to create the inside of the card using only the main body of the teapot leaving off the handle and spout. I cut the template down one more time to use as a smaller template for my french vanilla cardstock which was used for my sentiment.
My stamps are from the Papertrey Ink's Tea for Two collection and I used the Additions set too! They are stamped using ColorBox Chestnut Roan chalk ink. The front of the card was decorated with some yummy vintage seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy Shop, a few beautiful roses...I colored the mini roses with a copic marker to get the perfect color, and a leaf trinket pin with some added beads.
I hope you'll head on over to the Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog to check out the new challenge and see what the very talented ladies on the design team have in store for you. You will be impressed for sure!
