Time For Tea!!


The challenge on Fred She Said's Challenge Blog for this month is:


Create a 3D gift for a loved one.

Be sure to use a FRED SHE SAID image somewhere on your card! If you don't have one, there are LOADS of freebies available HERE! Then be sure to add your link HERE!
For this challenge I made a little package to hold tea bags. It is the perfect little gift for a tea-loving friend....or even mother-in-law! (wink!)
I love this pansy image, ....maybe you have noticed!! I printed it out as a wallet sized photo on Kodak matte photo paper.
Copics used: BG72, BG000, BV00, BV02, YG67, YG17, YG00, Y15. There were two purples that I used that were not Copic...so you'll have to figure those out for yourself!
HERE is the link to the directions to make the package.

Cardstock: Die Cut With A View, Robin
Ink: SU Baja Breeze, Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Magenta Flourish, BasicGrey Journal Block Frame
Punch: Martha Stewart Doily Lace, Martha Stewart Butterfly
Cuttlebug: Textile Embossing Folder
Wired Ribbon: Offray

Journal blocks were cut out by hand, colored with Copic Markers and glittered with Art Institute's Crystal Glitter. All box edges were sanded to expose the white paper core for a shabby chic feel.
