Vintage Tea For Two


I was asked to make a card on commission for a female 30th Birthday.  The brief I has was girly. The first thing that popped into my head was this layout I'd done for a Just Add Ink Scrapbooking Challenge earlier in the year. It was a girly layout that I'd loved making and so I was keen to see how it would translate to a card.

I think it worked pretty well!  I knew the card was going to be hand delivered so I was able to use some bulkier embellishments that I didn't have to worry about getting squished in the mail.

I loved the little torn section with the button and lace on my layout, so of course I had to carry it over to the card.

I wanted the inside to be as pretty as the outside, but with plenty of space for writing a message.

Of course I had to dress up the envelope too. I had a tiny scrap of the lace trim that I tucked in between the two ovals on the front.

On the back of the envelope I just covered the flap with some coordinating DSP.

Stamps: Sweet Essentials
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
DSP/Cardstock: Tea For Two DSP, Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla
Other: Big Shot, Ovals Collection Framelits, Timeless Type Alphabet Dies (retired), Paper Doilies, Corner Rounder Punch, Linen Thread, Victoria Crochet Trim, Vintage Faceted Buttons, Colour Spritzer, Sponge Dauber, Butterfly Trinket (non SU)

Bye for now,
