2 More Mother's Day Cards

This file is so cute, that I just had to play with it and for a change, I didn't do an invitation to tea.
You can find this file here.  You get 2 tea bag envelopes per page and you can print as many as you need.

 

 
I made 2 different but kind of the same cards.
 
 
The papers are all from DCWV. I cut the card, clipped the corners and added a piece of yellow ribbon to the fold side. The scalloped circle is a Spellbinder's die, I put the envelope on top of the circle. The envelope if perfect for slipping in a sample of your favorite tea to share with the recipient.
 
 
I decided to make this one a shaker card so I cut out the front part of the envelope and put the rest aside to use another day.
 
I put a couple of layers (scraps) under the shaker element and added a hat from plumpurdy.com which I stamped onto watercolor paper using StazOn ink. I colored it with watercolor pencils and did a fussy cut, adding it to the corner of the shaker element. To be honest, the hat was an after thought, I had been doing some experimenting and it was one of my useable experiments and still sitting in my work area.
 
I managed to use all scraps for both cards, but my scrap pile doesn't seem to have gone down very much. All of the papers are from DCWV's, "Flower Shower Spring Stack".
 
Thank you for stopping by to take a look.
