Dedicated to Kare, my tea time friend

The other day I ran across this challenge and just had to play along since my very favorite thing to do is sharing afternoon tea with my friend Kare. This is one of the very few things I miss about living in Michigan.





Recipe:

Cardstock - mine is from DCWV's Flower Shower Spring Stack
Cricut's Disney Classics cartridge - these icons are on the, "Mouse" key
Sequins, pearls
Chipboard - mine is an old cereal box
Clear Acetate
Foam Pads
Ribbon, flower, flower jewels, jewels
Heavy Duty Adhesive

I cut the design directly onto my card face, then cut the tea cups from scraps I have. Cut the chipboard to fit around the stacking cups, glue layers together and adhere to front of card using a very strong adhesive. After the layers have dried, add some sequins, beads, etc. to your shaker then adhere the clear adhesive to the top of the stack, layer piece with cutout onto the clear acetate using very strong adhesive. I also used some foam squares to help support it.
I added a flower and, "tea time" sentiment using items from my stash. I adhered them with foam pads.
