Just a Wee Spot of Tea Time Birthday Gift

The hub’s best friend has been in his life for almost 30 years!  Because of that we are close with his mother.  She came to this country over 40 years ago on the Queen Mary from England.  How cool is that!   Anyway, this week is her birthday and I made her a card and got her some tea from the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.  I decorated that box to match the card. 

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “tea time fun” pie with me!

Recipe:

Cricut Cartridge:  Damask Decor (I won this cart on a MPS Blog Hop Challenge back in August) For card, 3 inches – for box 2.5 inches. I also used the MPS Faux chipboard effect for the tea pot.

Card base – 8×11 cut in half then folded in half.  Fist layer 4×5.14

Box: Celebrate it – 1st layer 3.5 x 3.5

Cuttlebug: Swirls

Paper: Recollections and Bazzill –

 Punch – EK Success Pok-a-dots (I used the excess that was punched out for the “bubble effect”)

Ribbon – Celebrate It

Stamps: My Pink Stamper- Sweetest Cupcake – I also won in a MPS Blog Hop Challenge back in August!  I forgot to shoot the inside of the card, but that was the sentiment.

A Hip Cowgirl Kind of Card

I used the faux chipboard technic from My Pink Stamper for the horse shoe and added “bling” on the nail cutouts.
