Cup of Tea (while waiting anybody??)


 I thought I would share this card while I am waiting...

I am only waiting for confirmation of details now 

Well that's what I thought - looks as though they are keeping up the great track record of messing up, and I now don't know where I stand.

Finally - a communication breakthrough - maintenance is now booked in a private hospital for the 17th September.

I was playing with my spellbinder cups dies, and decided to create a stack.

I mounted these on an embossed card which I had rubbed distress ink over.

I then added the hand died seam binding and lace to simulate a table and cloth.

The sentiment was stamped, cut and sponged before being attached with a deep pink ribbon

The final details were the pearls, added after the card was mounted onto a deep pink base.

I am linking this to:

Thank you for visiting - any comments you leave are treasured.
May your day be blessed

This is great Maxine and I've never seen this die before. This card looks like a quilt and I like it... those cups and the embossing is a very neat look.

I own a few Spellbinders Dies but I have never seen the teacup one. Love how you have stacked them or is the die a 3 cup one?

Darlene said...

What a lovely card! All of the details, textures, colors and those wonderful teacups!! A very creative table and cloth too. Love it all.

Glad that your details are finally straightened out.
