Time for Tea


I so look forward to seeing the amazing stamp set and die-namic combos MFT have every month, and I just know you're going to love them as much as I do! Today I'm using Time for Tea and I've created a card with a little pocket to hold a couple of teabags.


Isn't that teapot die adorable?! it comes with so many pieces to customise your pot. I've cut mine from patterned paper and embellished with some paper roses.

I've also used the wonderful new alphabet die-namics, I know I'll use these a lot, the font is so cool!


Inside I've used a sentiment from Time for Tea, as well as the wonderful flourishes in the set. The birthday sentiment is from Polka Dot Greetings.


The pocket was created by simply scoring an inch from the bottom of the card on my scor-pal. I added a Simply Scallops Medium strip to add a little height to the pocket.
