Tea Cup Card

Are you ready for this card? It started out as a single tea cup but then I got a little carried away............ended up making a regular card - single layer......there's twist: netting (tulle) used inside the top note to soften the solid Rose Red color. This reminds me of the "old" vintage tea cups. I wished I had some wide silk Ivory ribbon to tie a bow on the handle.............oh get the idea................

Here's a closer look at the front. The adhesive pearls are the perfect embellishment. The message is popped with dimensionals. Love the new Perfect Punches stamp set which fits the oval scallop punch perfectly. The entire front of the tea cup is embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper Folder. Note: stamp the images BEFORE putting through the embossing folder...........

See the tea cup underneath - ready for a handwritten message (or a tea bag)

Back of card:

Here's a close-up of the netting (tulle) to soften the Rose Red color.

If you have this Sizzix tea cup die, fold the paper in half and position it slightly below the tea cup opening. Then cut off the bottom extension (see pink arrow). Stamp the images on the tea cup, then use Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder only for the front.

Use the Perfect Punch "Thanks" message: stamping one in Rose Red, punch out with Oval Scallop Punch and one in Black....sorry but the "Thanks" part will need to be hand cut out. Adhere on top of Oval Scallop punched image. Adhere adhesive pearls. Pop with dimensionals for tea cup front.
Card Base: (1) 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Rose Red CS run through the SU Exclusive Perfect Polka Dot embossing Folder. Cut a piece of tulle, adhere to card vase using mini glue dots.

You will need (1) Very Vanilla 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" CS top note negative. Stamp same image used on the tea cup. Pop with dimensionals
Adhere top note negative to card. Adhere tea cup to card front. Project is now complete.
