Tea Party

Yesterday afternoon as I was cleaning my crafting area, I picked up A Child's Year Cricut cartridge and flipped through the booklet. There was the image of the little girl serving tea--a perfect image for this weeks's The Shabby Tea Room Challenge--Polka Dot Tea Party, so a tea-themed card was in my mind last night and this morning when I woke up.

I used Basic Grey's Capella paper pad for the image,the shadow image, and for the floral background. I cut cream cardstock with  Labels 8 and stamped with Fancy Flourishes in Sweet Blush while the paper was still in the die.  I mounted the die cut image onto the Labels 8. I added some Baby Pink Berry vintage seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures and a flower that I had spritzed with Glimmer Mist.  I stitched the floral background before mounting to the Sweet Blush card base because I prefer not to have my stitching showing inside the card.
I mounted the Labels 8 die cut  onto the floral paper. The final touch--a tiny pearl on the tea pot's lid.
This post is rather rushed as hubby has started dinner, and I'm feeling a little guilty not helping.


  1. Cammie ... this is absolutely precious! I have that cartridge too and simply adore it! I just {heart} your design and that seam binding looks delicious! Thanks for sharing your lovely creation with us all in the Tea Room this week :)

  2. Nice job. Glad you got some use out that cartridge. ( I still have not used mine) It is perfect for this challenge.

  3. Cammie this is so beautiful! I love the way you mix colours and patterns - always with a delicate and graceful edge! Your floral arrangement in the top corner is utterly gorgeous - and I love the binding - this is such a pretty card!

  4. Oh I love how sweet this is! A very vintage feeling card for sure.


I truly appreciate your comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
