I've been fighting a horrible flu/cold for weeks, and struggling to keep up with everything on my plate - so today I sat down and made myself a get well card with the retiring Tea Shoppe stamp set:
The inspiration for this card?
I've been drowning myself in thyme tea from my garden (thank you Jennifer, Natural Herbalist, for the suggestion!). It is straight from my garden, free, and replaces all of the store bought teas - which, by the way, I had already exhausted! And, best yet, I found I like the taste.
I guess the only 'technical' detail on this card is the tea bag tag itself. To create this simple element:
- I simply folded a piece of cardstock in half, stamped the front of it with a portion of the tea cup stamp, then cut to a square to make the tag.
(It would be a rectangle if unfolded!)
- To make it appear that it came out of the cup, I pierced a tiny hole through the top of my cup, as well as the center of my tag, through which I inserted my baker's twine.
- Lastly, I used a Stampin' Dimensional under both layers of my tag to give it more dimension.
The multiple stampings of my Teeny Tiny Wishes get well sentiment are not aligned, but this is 5 Minute Mondays afterall - if it bothers you, take a few minutes longer and get out your Stamp-a-ma-jig!
Oh, and I'm feeling better already ... well, I'm smiling as I always am when I finish a project.
