Thanks So Much Teapot Card


You're going to want to make sure and check out Whimsical Wednesday today!  The challenge is called "Take Shape" and you're challenged to make a shaped card!  What fun, right?  There are tons of possibilities with this.  Be sure and head on over to the Whimsical Wednesday blog for fun and inspiration from the design team as well as to read the official rules and link up your own fabulous project!

For my project today I decided to make a teapot shaped card.  I found this teapot image on the Ashlyn's Alphabet Cricut Cartridge.  I sized it at 4 inches and created a shaped card.  I cut the card base in vanilla cardstock.  I cut the teapot again in some Basic Grey paper from their Kioshi 6 by 6 pad.  

I inked around the edges with some Close to Cocoa ink from Stampin' Up.  I tied a bow on the handle with some pink ribbon that has white stitching in it.  The pink gems are just some self adhesive bling from my stash.  For the sentiment I used a Nestabilies scallop oval die on some Stampin Up designer paper.  I inked the edges and then stamped the sentiment using Stampin Up's Sincere Salutations.  I attached this to the card with Pop Dots to give it a little dimension and interest.

Thanks for visiting today!

This is my second post of the day.  I also made a teacher thank you gift for Tracy - so be sure and see that before you go :)
