Gingerbread Teapot

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

IT'S NEW RELEASE TIME! The new Christmas dies are in the online store with 40 new designs and they are on a limited time sale at 30% off. It's not too soon to get started on your Christmas cards.

Today for your viewing pleasure I am featuring the new Gingerbread Teapot die. I created a Christmas card for my neighbor who has an exquisite holiday tea at her home every year. So let's get started with some details of how I created my card. 

Design Steps:
I started my card today with colors. I was the hostess on the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #865 this week. I chose the colors based on this Gingerbread Teapot die. I chose cinnamon cider, polished pink and coastal cabana for my color trio. Optional was anything goes and I added 2 additional colors.

Next, I cut the teapot elements in the challenge colors. Love the way it's looking so far. 
Next, I looked for a designer paper as a background for the Teapot house. I found this one that I thought would work great. I liked the silver trees, the falling snow and the snowy ground at the bottom. 

Polished Pink card base: 4 3/8" x 6"
Designer Paper Layer: 4 1/4" x 5 7/8"

Now that the card elements are prepared, I am ready to start assembly. I attached the designer paper to the card base with double sided tape.
I attached the teapot using a dimensional adhesive. I wanted it lifted slightly off the designer paper for added depth.
I wanted a sentiment on this and after several attempts that I didn't like I settled on this one. Season's Greetings w/Snowflakes is from the 2017 Christmas release. I cut it 2x in polished pink cardstock and used Art Glitter glue to connect them together. 
I attached the phrase to the image panel using the same glue. I like this one because it dries clear. 
Well that completes my sample for this week. I hope I have given all you tea lovers out there a way to use this die for a special Christmas card for a friend or family member. See you next Saturday!
