A card idea for tea lovers
This greeting card (a great card idea for tea lovers!) uses the Coffee Break digital stamp set from DigiStamp Boutique. This is such a versatile set; I used one of its coffee digital stamps for my husband's Valentine's day card this year. Unfortunately, the set has been retired; as far as DigiStamp Boutique goes, that is, I'm not finished with it yet!
The flower and button are from my stash. Don't they mimic the floral design on the teacup perfectly?! I've left the inside blank. This multipurpose sentiment can work for Just Because, Birthday, Anniversary, etc.
The digital paper comes from Snap Click Supply Company. This is a great 'where to buy site' for digital papers, stamps, templates, etc. to use in digital and/or hybrid papercrafting. Here you'll find the big names you're familiar with in digital form – BasicGrey, BoBunny, Cosmo Cricket, Echo Park, etc. I strongly suggest signing up for their newsletter. There's always a special offer going on. Every Wednesday it's One Buck ($1) Wednesday where a choice of papers, templates, kits, etc. are on sale that day only for just $1!!! I've gotten some fantastic buys that way. The paper I've used on this card – Samantha Walker Tea for Two digital paper set – is a case in point. It was featured in a One Buck Wednesday sale and I snapped it right up for only $1 (its normal price is $2.99).
I'm participating in Sketch Saturday #376, which is to choose and use any sketch from their archive. I chose #297.
