It was time to take a break and go to my craft room last night!
Oh, how I missed my crafting time! The Shabby Tea Room is having
a fun challenge this week! It calls for incorporating the colors from
the inspiration photo and to have an invitation theme. I am happy
how this pocket card turned out. It is my first attempt at one. My
friend, Nancy, made one and gave me the dimensions. Just email
me if you are interested on how to make this card. I'm also entering
this card over at Papercraft Star and The Ribbon Reel.
Anyways, I ran out of the background paper, so I wasn't happy
about that, but certainly wasn't going to start over. A lesson
learned there, of course.:-) But, I did get out my embossing powder
and put gold emblossing around the tea cup edges and small
flourishes in the corners. The doily and sentiment were distressed
with tea dye ink. Some yummy seam binding was addded along
with a fab button, twine, and pearls! This pocket card was fun and
easy to make. I know I'll be making more of them!
Here is the inspiration photo...
