For my card today, I created a fun tea setting card with our Tea Party set with a bright Anemone Garden backdrop.  I started off by heat embossing my tea cup with our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I embossed the floral design and saucer with the same powder. To give the cup a little pop of color, I stamped the cup base and handle using our Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid Ink (which matched my anemones perfectly!).

Next I heat embossed our Anemone Garden background stamp in our Rose Gold embossing powder. I watercolored the background with color bursts (Peony, Sap Green and Lemon Yellow). Next I trimmed my background panel and then adhered it to a pink card base.

Then I popped up my saucer and tea cup with some foam tape. To finalize my card, I stamped the sentiment from our Caffeine Crush set in our Light Onyx Dye Ink.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to hop over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog with a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa ready in your hand, as there are so many other participants playing along in this hop.

Thanks for stopping by today!

    I just planted some anemone flowers in my garden this year! If they turn out anything near as beautiful as what you have created I would be very happy! The rose gold completes the beauty of this card! Stunning.
