Instructions: Card size is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4”. Using 5 1/4 x 10 1/2” cardstock, score and fold at 5 1/2”. Using purple paper from paper collection cut to same size as card base and adhere. Cut pink paper from paper collection to 4 15/16” square, and another paper to 4 3/4” square. Die cut 2 medium doilies from Rounded Window die. Cut one in half and adhere on each side of card base, then adhere pink square directly onto card base. Adhere the second doily onto remaining panel as shown, trimming off the two sides as needed. Stamp the Tea Time sentiment onto doily using Vibrant Fuchsia ink. Cut sentiment from paper collection along with a border strip, cut to 6”. Score border strip at 3/4” and 3”.
Stamp two teacups, teapots and one large floral spray onto white cardstock using Sky Blue ink. Stamp tea sachet in Archival Jet Black, then stamp the spoon in Frost White ink, embossing with gold embossing powder and heat set. Stamp large and small hydrangeas onto Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Cactus Flower ink and leaves using Leaf Green ink. Die cut all with coordinating dies. Color using daubers, color the tea sachet in Sunflower, Vibrant Fuchsia ink, the spoon with Sunflower and a light touch of Vibrant fuchsia. In the center of the hydrangeas add Sunflower, and Cactus Flower or Vibrant Fuchsia along the edges. Use Vivid Chartreuse, Leaf Green and Emerald Green on the leaves. Color large floral spray with Sunflower, Vivid Chartreuse, Leaf Green and Vibrant Fuchsia inks. Finally add Sky Blue ink to the teacups and teapots, then using Dove Blender to color floral accents Vivid Chartreuse and Vibrant Fuchsia inks.
Shape hydrangea and leaves using their coordinating molds, misting with water before running through your machine. Shape the remaining pieces with your Deluxe Flower Shaping kit, pierce the tea sachet and add the string. Adhere two teacups together using foam adhesive. Cut apart floral spray and arrange onto card as shown along with leaves, flowers and teacup.
Using the sentiment and previously scored border strip, glue sentiment between two score lines of border strip. Pierce sentiment strip and the bottom-right of teapot, insert brad. Fold remaining flaps back and glue small 3/4” flap over brad closure, to allow the brad to slide smoothly across the card. Next place teapot onto panel as shown, pierce the top left of teapot, insert brad attaching teapot onto panel, thus allowing it to pivot, then slide remaining border along the back of the panel. Adhere panel onto card base using foam adhesive being sure to allow enough room on the back for the folded border strip to move freely up and down. Slide sentiment up and down to move the teapot, as if in a pouring position. Finally adhere the second teapot onto first teapot using foam adhesive.
Finish by adding Crystal Glitter and Go Man Go prills to card.
