Coffee Loving Cardmakers Summer Bloghop.
I cut my tea cup with the Cricut and the Joy of the Season cartridge at a size of 2.5 inches. The designer paper is plaid in red and green with a bit of pink.
I chose my neutral layer card stock with a slightly green tinge to it. I chose a greeting downloaded from Desert Diva. I also printed a square into which I was going to place my cup. Once printed, it was browner than the original red color I had chosen since it was printed on slightly green paper. The color wheel tells you that red and green make brown. I had to change the card base selected to be more burgundy than my original selection.
I trimmed the square and greeting to leave even borders on the card front as they were adhered.
I could see pink in the designer paper so I punched small flowers from pink card stock and cut a couple of straight strips from a pink card stock. I glued the strips at the top and bottom of the tea cup then trimmed them to the cup edge. I placed the flowers across the cup below the pink strip. I added small iridescent flower sequins and held it all in place with tiny pink brads. I added another flower on the greeting. The cup was adhered to the square with 3D foam tape. I added little heart steam by hand with a burgundy marker.
