The dies are currently on sale at 25% off so check all the new designs in the online store for some great selections. The Safari & Circus releases are still available at 25% off as well.

Now onto my card for today. I am featuring the new Spring Tea Party die and 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. 

Purple Posy card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Heather Highland rectangle layer: 1 7/8" x 4 1/8"
Gingham Designer Paper Layer: 1 3/4" x 4"
Purple Posy sentiment Layer: 2 1/4" x 3/4"
Grape embossed panel: 4" x 1 1/4"
White Circle Image Panel:  I used the 3rd largest Circle die.
Highland Heather Circle Layering Panel: I used the 3rd largest Stitched Circle die.
Now I am ready to cut my images. I used just the fox image from this set. I decided to cut the fox in light and dark gray cardstocks. This color worked better with my designer papers. Forgot to take a photo of the images before I attached them to Circle panel (LOL)!!!

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. 
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 week. I hope you all have a blessed Easter celebration. See you next Saturday.
