I am a big tea drinker…not speciality teas just plain and simple Tetley Tea lover. Growing up we always drank Red Rose Tea – do you remember the little figurines you used to get in the box? And the slogan for the tea was "You can only get it in Canada" and then the response was "Pity". I think it was someone that was supposed to be the Queen so said in a very proper English accent. When you stir your tea (assuming you have it the right way with a little milk) sometimes there is this little "swirl" in the middle of your tea – that's a "fairy in your tea" and you'll want to scoop that up with your spoon and make a wish. And don't forget your biscuit – tea without a biscuit is like a day without sunshine.
This adorable little card was created by my sister, Ellie Blake, using the A Nice Cuppa stamp set, Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack and the Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies. Ellie used a piece of Window Sheet to create an opening to see the sentiment inside the card.
The tea cup is stamped first with the saying and then embossed with the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. Just adds that little extra dimension and detail to the cup.
The Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack is fabulous and includes:
- 48 sheets, 6" x 6"
- 4 each of 12 double-side designs
