Warm Tea Cup
I cut the tea cup from designer paper from a pad named Sweet Dreams - Holiday Avenue by My Mind's Eye. I cut the cup with the Cricut and the Folk Art Festival cartridge at 2.25 inches. I cut the corresponding solid shape from dark red card stock and adhered it behind the patterned one.
I color printed the greeting layer. I trimmed the top and 2 sides and ripped the bottom. I needed something to anchor the shape so I pulled out the Stampin Up Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a paintbrush. I mixed a color with Real Red, Bravo Burgundy and Ridinghood Red. I painted a horizontal spot for the cup to sit on and then a swirl of steam off the top.
The cup is adhered with 3D foam tape.
