I don't normally make shaped cards, but this little teapot was TOO CUTE to ignore!
I cut it from white card then covered the front with polka dot embossed paper then trimmed away the excess. I drew around the teapot onto this rose paper and cut out a teapot body. Using the same method I cut out a separate lid and little knob for the top. I adhered the pieces into place & then ran around the edges with a dressmaker's wheel. I cut out a tag, along with the sentiment from the same rose patterned paper. I cut the pink shadow on the letters by hand. I decorated the tag with a couple of paper roses and tied it to the 'lid' with some pink voile ribbon. I trimmed the tag with a bow. The tag swings freely. I added the sentiment 'fancy a cuppa?' to the inside.
Teapot card- A Child's Year (card was cut from a piece of A4 card after determining papersize and pressing 'cut to fit'. This card is actually a tag!)
Scalloped tag- A Child's Year
Sentiments- Lyrical Letters (Jumbo font)
Thanks for dropping by!
