Hello there fellow bloggers!

Today is Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Day!

The theme for this challenge is to make a shaped card.

I love this challenge and knew immediately what I wanted to do.
Take a look & tell me what you think.Then head over to the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Blog for details and sneek peeks of the other design team members. They are all so fabulous & fun. You are going to love it!

It is a tea cup card. I free handed the cup on cardstock, cut it out, embossed it, added stickles to the swiss dots and then used foam dots to pop up the one layer on top of the other. I needed the space to be able to insert the tea bag. I used the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge for the door knob cut @ 5".

Here's a close up of the slit where I inserted the tea bag that is attached to the sentimentals door knob. You actually can pull the tea bag right out. The sentiment reads: You're my cup of tea. I printed that off my computer on to the green cardstock.

Kind of difficult to see the stickles on the cup here in the photos but in person you can & it adds such nice dimension.

I totally need another camera! These pics didn't turn out the best but you get a feel for the card nonetheless.

  10. Extra credit for you Sonia, for hand cutting your own shaped card! I never would have known it wasn't a Cricut cut! Love how the tea bag pulls out...I've never seen this done before and I love it. The beads add wonderful bling and I'm curious how you got your Stickles to stay so dimensional. Mine always flatten out. Really great card...thanks for sharing!
