Time for Tea

This is just a standard A2 card, the teapot is from Cricut cartridge Every day pop up cards cut at 3.5". Instead of putting the centers in on the flowers I added a gem, then I used pop dots to make the teapot really 3d, added some ribbon & tied a knot as a finishing touch.

3 layers

 These type of cards are so fun to make & super quick & easy.
U start with the normal A2 size, (5.5 x 4.25) cut the 1st layer (black) at 5.25 x 4, then I make the white just slightly smaller then the 2nd black layer is 4.75 x 3.5 then again layered the white just a tiny bit smaller & lastly the 3rd black layer is 4.25 x 3 & again the same idea with the white.

Layer the 3 whites together DO NOT GLUE!!  Stamp the image u want.

Then color if needed, once that's done layer the white & black together, add ribbon if desired. I like to add pop dots to the smallest layer, it really gives it a cool 3d look.


I made my own glimmer/shimmer glitz spray the other day, here a butterfly card I made using it. I just used dabbers to ink the background using distress ink. I then also inked the butterfly & spray with the glimmer glitz. I am SO excited about this

Flower Pot

I made this card using Cricut cartridge Pop up cards, I thought it would be fun to have the pot lift so the  inside would become the card. So I scored the layer where it "flares" out, added some score tape, glued it down then added some ribbon after. I then stamped thinking of you at the bottom.

Here is it flapped open.
