A Cup of Tea

Happy Tuesday! Today's card is quick and easy card I cranked out with the help of Our Daily Bread's recent release, Special Blend.



I stamped the doily on ecru card stock and then followed up with the sentiment in a rich shade of red. I then took a pair of trimming scissors and cut the image out. I created the base from a 4 1/2 by 9 inch red strip of card stock. I then scored it at the 4 1/2 inch point and folded to create the card. I layered on some ecru card stock and this lovely gingham print by Graphic 45. I paper punched some ecru card stock and placed it on my card and adhered my sentiment with dimensional foam. I also added some jute and these cute tiny wooden clothespins from the craft section of my local discount chain. Kinda looks like I hung the linens out on the line! Thanks so much for visiting! Blessings...

Nice! The punch really goes well with the stamp.

So adorable with the little clothes pins. It really does look like lacy linens on a clothesline. Very clever.
