Teapot Thank You

 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI made this card some time ago and forgot to write down all the supplies before I sent it out, so I am going to try to remember based on the picture.  I started with kraft and impressed the grid lines using the letterpress technique.  I used Vintage Cream to ink up the Guide Lines impression plate.  I didn’t worry about getting ink on the plate as I wanted a distressed look on the card.  I then swiped the pad along the edges.  I stamped the little teapot in Summer Sunrise  in random squares.  I used the Mat Stack 3 die as my focal point.  I stamped it in Aged Mahogany and then cut a circle from the bitty dots paper to put in the center.  The teapot die was used the cut the Autumn Aubundance paper and then it was adhered with foam tape and some buttons added. I stamped the sentiment and adhered it over the Summer Sunrise ribbon, then added a Scarlet Jewel button with a clear rhinestone on top. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   On the inside, I stamped the little teacup in the bottom right corner.  It looks huge in this picture, but it’s really not.

Thanks for stopping by today!
