Thank You Teacup Card


Hello Everyone!

Today I have a sweet little thank you card.

The base is Kraft cardstock and it measures 4 by 4 when folded.  The top 2 corners are rounded on a 1/2 inch setting using my Corner Chomper.

The stitching lines were done with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen, truly it's my very favorite gel pen.
 
All the patterned papers used were from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky 6 by 6 pad.

The teacup was cut using the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge.  I custom created the scalloped part by using my Stampin' Up scallop border punch and then cutting little slits in the top so I could make the curve to match the teacup.  I was inspired by this Stampin' Up stamp set to use polka dots and then scallops:
 
 
  Sometimes I find inspiration that way, when I like a product but am not sure I will get it I search for ways to get a similar look with things I already have. The stamp set is called Tea Shoppe and it's in the Occasions Mini catalog that runs until April 30th if you happen to like it and want to get it.  I'm not a demo, just passing along the info.

I used the same border punch along the bottom.

The stamp is from a set called Short and Sweet from Stampin Up.  The ink color used was Mellow Moss.
 
I think this will make a nice card for a friend :)
Thanks for stopping by!

The button is from the $1 section of Michael's and the ribbon was in my stash.  I threaded the button with embroidery floss.
