Always Tea Time

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today with a vertical slimline card for the tea lovers in your life.  For this card I used the Nested Stitched Rectangle Slimline and the Rounded Rectangle Slimline dies along with Spring Tea Party from the Spring release.

I started by picking my background paper so that I could have the colors for my fox and flowers.  I used the Stitched Rectangle for the background and the Rounded Rectangle for my banner.

I cut all pieces of my image from white cardstock and colored with Distress Oxide inks.  I cut two of all the flowers and tea cups.

I stamped my sentiment 1 1/4 inches from the top of the banner and placed my fox just below.  Then I added the flowers and teacups, angling them.  I decided not to use the purple teapot.

I wanted to add some ribbon to give a bit of interest to the base and highlight the fox.

I cut a piece of ribbon 7 inches long, folded it in half and adhered in 3 1/5 inches from the top.  I angled the ends.

Because of the height of the ribbon, I used foam tape on the back of my banner piece to adhere it to the card.  I placed it 1/4 inches from the top.

I used some coordinating pearls to give a little bit of playful shimmer and draw your eye down the banner.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today.  Be sure to visit the online store where the new Slimline dies are on sale for a limited time.
