Warm cup of tea...

Hello Everyone! I needed another thank you card-- this time for my SIL who is a fellow tea lover. THIS is why I have several different tea themed stamp sets, lol! You just never know. I decided to go with an easel card because I love this retired paper from SU (can't remember the name of it) and wanted to really showcase it. Plus the sentiment I wanted to use was very long and I knew I would have a hard time fitting it on the front of the card. 


I also wanted to send her a little bit of my current favorite tea-- (Pineapple Black loose leaf tea, YUM) so I used a Waltzingmouse rubber band box template to package it in. LOVE that box! Especially because there are two sizes included in the template. It's a bit complicated to cut out (I reallllly need a digital cutter!) but so worth it!


I used the gorgeous Italian doily die from Cheery Lynn designs behind all the layers, isn't it just stunning?! For some reason, I like cutting my own doilies from my choice of papers rather than store bought ones, I don't know why. Maybe it's the paper they use for mass produced doilies, not crazy about it. I always pick them up to admire them, but never end up buying any. 

Well thanks for taking a peek, I'll be back on Thursday for the new Lili of the Valley Challenge.
