I truly believe that no matter what, a cup of tea with family or friend, can make anything and any situation better. For the coffee drinkers, a cup of coffee does the same trick but since I am more of a tea drinker.....
I made this card for my sis-in-law who is a bit under the weather these days. Hope she feels better soon.
Isn't this little teapot just the best ever ? And it wasn't too difficult to make either. I kept it simple 'cos i know that is how she will like it. The paper is from the heirloom stack by DCWV. This paper is quite thin, just like an ordinary printing paper, which is great for making cards that need to posted - saves on the mailing cost. The flowers are cut using spellbinder dies and then I twirled and twisted each layer and then misted it with water. Gives a more natural appearance
I also highlighted the pink flower using my markers just before spritzing it with water and thus the different shades in the flower.
Some of my friends have asked me why I do not use stamped sentiments. Well, I have nothing against them - they make the cards look so beautiful. I just like to add a personal touch by writing the sentiments out. Little idiosyncrasies, I guess :)
