Ok, so I didn't make it back here on Monday or Tuesday--sorry my bad! I am just having a heck of a time trying to get back into the groove of things after coming home from CHA. But hopefully things are going to be coming around and getting back to normal. *wink*
Today, I have a set of three cards to share with you using the New Wonderland Tea Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets and the Greetings from Wonderland stamp set.The cards are very similar but they each have a different sentiment and a little bit different embellishments. I LOVE this image of Alice on the teapot and I thought matching this sentiment to the image would be cute! The sentiment makes me giggle. The sentiment is from the Greetings from Wonderland stamp set. I cut out all of the images from the Wonderland Tea Creative Scraps and rounded the corners. Then for the mat behind the image I used S4-291 Labels Fifteen die template #5 and the Grand Calibur™ with Core'dinations White Wash/Pink paper and cut/embossed and sanded the die cut.Here is a close up of the image and sentiment.To create the felt piece around the sentiment and the border at the bottom I used S5-040 Floral Doily Accents and the Grand Calibur™ to make the die cuts. Then I added tiny pearls to the tag and border.Here is a close up of the image and the sentiment.For a little sparkle I added Star Dust Stickles to the flowers on the images and also to the paper flowers and around the outer edge of the background paper. I create the background paper I used Powder Blue Shimmer paper and I2-1009 Flourish to emboss and then I lightly sanded the paper to reveal the white core.Here is a close up of the image and sentiment.
I added a few Prima roses and vintage style buttons to each of the cards.
