This is a fun set that I’ve had for quite a while that I’ve been dying to get inky! What clicked was this paper I recently purchased that reminds me somewhat of the blue and white china pieces similar to Wedgewood that I collect.. After looking at the pattern on the paper, I thought a-ha this would make a great “tea” card. I ran through quite a few of my ink pads to find a shade of blue that would work, but I’m happy :-)
I used two different Waltzingmouse Stamps sets on my card. Designed to match Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, I cut embossed a matching stamped image from Very Vintage Labels No. 18 and included a trimmed version of the teapots from the Afternoon Tea set. I simply stacked the two images and mounted them at the top the card. In love with those stamps!! To construct the card I simply cut a tall panel 4.5″ x 8″ and mounted a cross panel embellished with strips of gold and bordered with the double arches border punch.
Well, that’s it for me today!! This was pretty easy to accomplish and I just love the tall format cards – I wish I made them more often :-)
