A flowering teacup is the centerpiece of this festive birthday card. I happen to know lots of tea lovers. Are you a tea lover? This teacup card is for one of my many tea loving friends. Since her favorite teas are not from the US, I thought it more appropriate to fill up her teacup with flowers.
The teacup is cut out of Sweet Sorbet cardstock using two of the Teacup Dies and popped up on dimensionals. The myriad of flowers were cut from coordinating cardstock using the Sentimental Park Dies. Some of the flowers I glued directly to the card base. Then I adhered a handful of the flowers with dimensionals. For the tiny centers I used two different sized hole punches. As long as you have patience and don’t mind getting sticky, attaching all the flowers will be worth it.
I don’t recall which set the leaves came from. They are not from either the Teacup or the Sentimental Park Dies. If you need to know, feel free to leave a comment and ask me. I’ll be happy to do some research and figure it out for you. (I can ALMOST picture the set).
For both the front side panel, and the side strip on the inside, I used a piece of the 6 x 6 Teacup Boutique DSP. The inside of the card also features a piece of the Teacup Boutique paper. I really like the way the inside piece turned out. Cutting around the teacup handles added a nice point of interest.
The sentiment for the inside of the card came from the Something Fancy stamp set. Because I missed her birthday, I thought this sentiment would be perfect. Hopefully, I homemade card will be worth the wait.
I personally think that the front of the card is a little too busy. However, when my team met at my house today, they spotted it and all thought it was wonderful. So, their interest in the card prompted me to post it here. Here’s hoping you like this teacup birthday card as well.
