A Nice Cuppa.... You are Tea-riffic

This is such a sweet card - from the color combination, to the cute hearts on the Designer Series Paper, to the sentiment...  it's just sweet :).  And....  it makes me smile!  How about you??

We start our card with a Wisteria Wonder card base, then added a strip of the Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack to the bottom of the card.  This DSP stack is just one of the many items retiring on May 31 - see them all here.

Next, we stamped that cute tea cup from the A Nice Cuppa stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink.  As the Cups & Kettles Framelits have already sold out (bummer!), you'll need to fussy-cut the tea cup with your Paper Snips.  We popped our tea cup up on Dimensionals and added it to a Whisper White piece that frames it nicely.  We also rounded one of the corners of our Whisper White piece with our Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.

Then, we stamped "you are tea-riffic" from the A Nice Cuppa Photopolymer Stamp set and punched it out with our Large Oval Punch.  We also punched a Melon Mambo Scallop Oval piece and layered our sentiment on top of this piece.  Both of these oval punches will be retiring on May 31 (another bummer!).  I really like the way these two punches work so well together.

Finally, we tied a Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon bow around the card.  This ribbon is so easy to work with and adds a great accent to our card.
