I've been singing this song lately. Life is the bus and the wheels just keep on turning.
I recently found out that a close Aunt was diagnosed with skin cancer. She is going in for surgery on the 22nd to have it removed and I wanted to send her a comforting card.
Tea is comforting to me. Not sure why..I have just always really like tea and tea sets and tea parties. In my mind I love the traditional English afternoon ritual of stopping everything for a cuppa and some sandwiches or cookies. Must be in my blood. ;)
Anyway, I found this tutorial from SplitCoastStampers (one of my absolute favorite web sites) for a card that could hold two tea bags. I decided to make this and send it to my Aunt.
Here's how it turned out:
|Here is the side view where you can see the two tea bags in there (and a little note I wrote).|
|The front (that's a quilled flower, top left)|
|And the back|
Should have gotten a shot of the inside, but I didn't want to unwrap it again. Sorry!
It wasn't difficult, but you do need some basic supplies. A scoring board, trimmer, paper, ribbon, embellishments. And I didn't add the extra cord to hold it all in there. Just some glue.
You can upload finished projects on Split Coast if you want to show off. ;)
Happy Saturday ya'll.
