Okay, now onto my card!! This was the first card that I made with this set,Tea For Two, and I was trying for a more "vintage-y"(totally not a word, but I am using it) feel. I used some K&Co. paper from the Classic K Margo pack. I used two different pieces of it and connected them with some Cream grosgrain ribbon and some cream organdy ribbon. My image was stamped four times...twice on watercolor paper and once on each different DP. I colored the first mouse and cut him out, as well as cutting out different parts of the cup from the DP. I paper pieced the cup and then layered the mouse to give him some dimension. He was colored with my SU reinkers then cut out and layered using my circle nesties. I used tag punches for my sentiment and did a lot of piercing. The buttons, which I sewed to the paper using linen thread, are from the Making Memories Blossoms and Buttons pack. The other ribbon on this card is some retired Cranberry Crisp stitched ribbon. The only colored card stock I used on this card was Cranberry Crisp and Confetti Cream. Well, that is it for me for now, hopefully I will be back later, but Jared is here and his third tooth is breaking through..yayyy. NOT!! If not, I will be back at 11pm CST for a sneak peek at the one other set, and some FUN!! Thanks for looking!!
