You are Tea-riffic

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

It's Easter weekend and today is Good Friday. The day that Christians remember the suffering and death of our Lord Jesus Christ. Looking forward to a great service at Church on Sunday as we celebrate His resurrection. 

I am having my in-laws for dinner on Sunday and today is cleaning day and tomorrow will be my meal prep day. So I Wanted to get this post done so I can start cleaning. Not much to do just dusting and run sweeper because I try to stay on top of all this weekly. 

My card for today is featuring the new Spring Tea Party die. This is also my DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I created a Mother's day card for a tea loving friend. She also collects teacups so I think she will like this one. Let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:
Since I knew what die I wanted to use I just needed the layout that would work with it. I found this one online. I liked the multiple layers and it gives me a chance to use designer paper.
I looked through my papers to see what would work best. I decided to go with different shades of purple. The background paper is from the Stampin'-Up "playing with patterns" collection and the gingham paper is from their "gingham gala" collection. 
The card base is purple posy and it measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". The designer paper layer is 4 3/8" x 5 3/8". All the other measurements follow what's listed in the sketch. 
I cut the fox image in smoky slate and basic gray cardstocks. Next, I stamped my sentiment in black ink with the help of my MISTI tool. Just in case I needed to double stamp. Sometimes the clear stamps don't make a good impression on the first stamping. And, for this one I did need to triple stamp to get a good image. The sentiment is from the Stampin'-Up set "a nice cuppa". 
Now that all my elements are prepared I am ready to start card assembly. I attached all the layers with double sided tape.
For the image panel, I used dimensional adhesive on the fox. I usually like images lifted off the background slightly for added interest. 

To finish off my card I scattered a few grape rhinestones. And, that's it for me for this post. I hope you all have a blessed Easter celebration.
