Hello, friends! Glad you could join me today for a new challenge at the ColourQ! I can't wait to see your creations with this color combo:
I had a few too many things on my mind when making my card, so I'm not totally happy with the way it turned out, but sometimes that's just how it goes. The teacups seem to be floating in space and need something to ground them, but my brain was not working well enough to find a solution, so this is how it will stay for now!
I stamped the teacups in Real Red, Old Olive, and More Mustard on a kraft card base that is only 3 3/4 inches wide. I stamped the bottom using PTI's Background Basics: Tin Types, then stamped a sentiment from Tea for Two on a white strip of cardstock.
To finish the card, I added some white dots to the cups with a gel pen, scored a frame around the edge, and tied some olive floss around the card front. I suggest cutting a small notch in the edge of the card to keep your floss in place, as you can see in the photo below.
