|2015 Tea Invitation|
I had lots of ideas, but as always, I started to run short on time, so I opted for a more simple design. It is a gate fold card on peach CS with a beautiful designer paper layered on top. I die cut this Poppystamp Die Teapot Stack 1157 from a teal cardstock. Then I cut it again from silver cardstock. When I removed it from the die machine, I turned it upside down and put a piece of removable tape across all the pieces; then carefully removed the outline of the die (save this piece for a later project). Now take the teal outline and place a piece of tape on the back of it covering all the cutout areas; pick up each silver piece and place it in the proper space in the teal outline. Yes, I know....you are saying this will take time. But BELIEVE me, if you don't keep all the pieces in the proper place, you will have a nightmare on your hands trying to figure out which piece goes where! Just ask me how I know!
Now all you have to do is tape the teapots to the left side and add corner sticker embellishments!

On the inside I stamped a Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp and left it in black outline. I added a hand written reminder to wear a Easter bonnet. The center is a Martha Stewart punch around the page with the information needed pre-printed from the computer.
Unfortunately, this stamp may no longer be offered, but Sparkle and Sprinkle does have other Hat Ladies that would work (also offered as digi stamps):
Vivian Hat Lady and Danielle Hat Lady and Catherine Hat Lady
Stay tuned for more information on the tea, like the menu and recipes.
