Cup of Birthday Tea!

Hello Folks!

What do you know.....a Wednesday post from me! Amazing!

Hee, hee.....well here I am back with another card and this time I've created something a little bit different. Inspired by the 3D challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown I decided to make my own 3D teacup! What do you think....


Sorry its not the best photo....it was quite hard to photograph!!

To make this cute teacup I took a square folded card and drew the teacup shape on the front. When happy with the shape (and believe me this took some time!!) I cut the shape out, making sure to cut through both sides of the card. I then stuck the pretty pink paper onto the front of the teacup and added the inside of the teacup by adding an oval of cream coloured card - to match the cream handle. I then stamped my flowers and leaves image, coloured with my Promarkers and stuck to the front as well. I also edged the teacup with a pink Promarker to add depth. I made my saucer from an oval of pink paper and a smaller oval of cream.

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:

The Altered Alice - anything goes (as long as its inspired by Alice!) I think a teacup his the spot here!!
Passion for Promarkers - Happy Birthday - this is my second entry in this challenge!

Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created.

Thanks for popping by today, I hope to see you again soon!

Hi Wedgie, what a great idea and a wonderful card!

You are very brave cutting it out free-hand - I wouldn't trust my cutting skills to do that at all!!
