Time for Tea


I bought some Elizabeth Craft dies recently, and just had to try them out.

After cutting the images out in blue card I glued them onto a scrap of dp and fussy cut around them. 

The features on the die cuts I filled in with a gold pen.

The die cuts were mounted onto a thin yellow card that I had embossed with the Swiss dots folder, above a piece of ribbon and lace, which gives the impression of a tablecloth. 

The 'curtain', was made with four strips of ribbon adhered to the top of the card, and then caught in the corner with some pearle thread, and with a rhinestone to accent it.

The whole was then mounted onto white card base, that I had sponged the edges of with blue ink.

What a great card. I love the dies, and the way you have backed them. It's a pity they didn't supply a plain die for the mat! Your curtain idea works well. Kate x

Excellent creation Maxine. The curtain is unique and LOVE the color. The lace helps to define what might be the table edge and is a pretty accent feature. What can I say about the tea pot and cups except excellent coloring. Kudos.
