Cup of Tea?

Well, hello again and welcome to the MFT Product Tour! I'm featuring the Always Time for Tea dienamics and stamp set. You have GOT to get your hands on this set and the matching dienamics! It is loaded with so many wonderful sentiments in a delicious font, plus fun flourishes and several stamps to let you decorate your tea pot and cup however you wish! FUN!!! First, this card measures 9 1/4" x 4", so it fits a standard business sized envelope. I wanted a lot of space to work with and haven't made a long card in forever, so I thought this would do the trick! I may have gone overboard on the girly-ness of this one! Don't all those rows of scallops remind you of the little girl under pants with the ruffles on the bottom?? Hehe! I did a lot of faux stitching with my rose red marker {a plus of "faux" stitching - you can pick any color 'thread' you want, whenever you want!}. There's a strip of the gingham dp that I cut out with the small scallop dienamic (told you I was obsessed!) and attached it to the bottom of the sentiment. And yep, I have another strip of it on the left side but that piece was cut out with the postage stamp edge dienamic and has a strip of pink small scallops under it. The tea pot was added to the Vintage Cameo frame dienamic using pop dots. Other finishing touches are antique butons, honeydew twine and some fancy flourishes cut out of sour apple MFT felt.

For the inside I added a matching cup, saucer and spoon. Notice the steam coming up from the hot tea? *love* And notice the flourishes in the opposite corner? *double love*
