I got some new stamps from PaperTrey called Mega Mixed Messages and as soon as I saw the sentiment on one of them I knew what I wanted to make, a Get Well Soon Card! It worked out well that the challenge for March was to use embroidery floss!! SWEET! I was already planning on it!
The paper is PaperTrey Bitty Dot Basics. I used my “A Childs Year” Cricut cartridge and cut out the cup of tea in 3 inches and “George and Basic Shapes” to cut out 1 inch squares for the end of the tea bag string.
These were really too simple and too cute so I whipped up a few more. The good thing is that this lends itself well to using some of the prints that I have a hard time mixing different colors with, like this print…..
I actually let the string hang down a little longer than the card so that it can swing around and put the sentiment on both sides.
Another card I made using some smaller scraps that I had of the polka dot paper and cut the mug out of the “Christmas Cheer” cartridge.
The last one I had lined up wrong in the machine and I went of the edge of the paper and didn’t cut the cup out right. I didn’t want to waste this cutout because I LOVE THIS PAPER so I saved it by moving it over a little and hanging the string of the side to make it look right. Pretty good save if I do save so myself!
Anyone for tea? I think this would be cute if you taped a Celestial Seasoning Tea Bag inside. Hmmmmm. Anyone I know feeling sick? cough~ cough~.
