I have seen this card floating around for about 2 years now. It may be older, I’m not sure, but however old it is, it really struck a cord in me and I knew I wanted to make my own version of it. (CASE it) So, here is my version. One thing I will tell you is, it was very messy to make! I still have glitter and flocking in my hair!! LOL
All you need to do one of your own is:
Stamper’s Select White Cardstock (40 Sheets) – Paper Trey Ink
Deer Trio Die – Memory Box
Birch Trio Die – Memory Box (trees)
Resting Birds Die – Memory Box
and one truck load of white flocking & glitter!

This card was created with Waltzing Mouse Stamps, Afternoon Tea Set. This is a set I have waited a long time to use just because I don’t usually have time to make cards, even though I think I have every stamp set ever made! I like to pair up my stamp sets when I do make a card. I am one of those people that painstakingly creates and it is like giving birth to me! Finally Graphic 45 came out with the perfect paper for that lovely little mousey stamp set, Botanical Tea! It was a match made in heaven and I knew I could move ahead with this one.
I single cut the tea pot, then double cut the foam for the shaker window. The tea cup was fussy cut just to add a little extra. Found the right tea colored glitter and a card was born! Not much to it but I love the way it turned out. Just paper and the die cut tea pot is all you need, and maybe a real cup of tea! ( Shuffle of to Buffalo – Badumpbum! )”

So my son wanted to give a tag to his BFF at school. Here it is in all it’s sugary sweeeetness. Note the swirly candy image is fussy cut off a Trader Joe’s bag of peppermint taffy.
This was my second time “out of the gate” and it went much smoother. I used the 6×6 paperstack by DCWV called “Citrus” because my aunt loves bright primary colors, used embellishments from Jolee’s Boutique and did minimal distressing on the edges (with a regular stamp pad). I finished it off with scrap fibers including suede. I’m using more and more suede scraps thanks to my mom (I’ll talk more about all the goodies she gave me in another post titled “Goodies from MOM”). This album was very fun to create with all the bright spring-like colors. This project definitely makes me ready for warmer weather.
