Sweet Tea

     It's time for another sketch for January. This one is for a card.

Sketch #65

      For this sketch I saw a see-thru card, so I started with acetate. I decided to make an easel card. A friend of mine is moving and I have her punches for safe keeping, until she is ready to set up her craft room. I guess the perk in this is that I can play in them. She has 300+ punches. I enjoyed using the Mini Lucky 8 Doily punch for a tablecloth. It has a coordinating edge punch that I used across the top. I stamped "HEY, SWEET-TEA" using black Stazon ink. The tea components and hearts are from Stamps of Life "Tea4Two".The patterned paper is Authentique's new Alpine 8.


     The cup acts as a stand for the card at the same time that it catches the hearts falling from the teapot. This would make a perfect Valentines' card.

The scalloped doily effect lends itself perfectly to our 'English tea time' and the idea of the hearts being poured from the teapot is just so clever! Great split sentiment as well.
