Heartfelt Creations: Tea, anyone?

Hello! Today I am sharing a card I made for the Heartfelt Creations blog.  I was inspired to create this card, after seeing Becky's beautiful card HERE.  I love that this tea set matches the Spellbinder's nesting tea cups. Makes everything so easy, and I love it when things coordinate!  Be sure to check out the Heartfelt Creations blog to see many other wonderful projects from the DT.
Here are the instructions on how to make my card above:

HCPC 3354-Classic Message PreCut set
HCPC 3469-Tattered Blossom Swirls
HCPC 3472-China Fragments PreCut set
HCPC 3473-Tattered Background PreCut set
Spellbinder's Nested Tea Cups die set
other supplies:  white, kraft, sage shadow cardstock; Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Ranger distress inks in Antique Linen and Walnut Stain, Pink Pirouette ink SU, copic markers, seambinding, vintage stick pin
Fold Sage Shadow card base so it is 4.25" x 4.25". Ink edges with Walnut Stain ink. Cut kraft cardstock to measure 4"x4". Stamp Tattered Background in Antique linen distress ink and ink edges with Walnut Stain ink. Cut white cardstock panel to measure 2.25"x3.5". Stamp Tattered Swirls in pink and ink edges with Antique linen ink. Mat white panel with Sage cardstock that measures 2.5" x 3.75" and ink edges.  Stamp two tea cups and two handles onto white cardstock in black ink and use coordinating dies to cut. Color with copic markers and sponge distress inks to shade. Adhere to white panel by stacking your tea cups. I used foam dots to pop the bottom teacup and add dimension. Stamp sentiment under teacups. Punch a whole where card folds and tie seam binding in a bow over kraft panel that is showing. Add stick pin to center of bow.

Thanks for stopping by!
