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.
