Welcome to Day 3 of the Scrappy-Go-Lucky "Round the World with CRI-Kits" Blog Hop. It is Wednesday already in Australia, so it is my turn to show you something to do with "my part of the world" and a part of the world that is special to me.
I live just outside of Boston, Massachusetts now, however, we spent five years living in England and I have very fond memories of our time there. So, I thought about the both the Boston Tea Party and my time in England where I enjoyed the rituals of tea drinking and came up with this fancy tea party card.
Here are all of the elements that I used to create this card. I am partial to blue and white so I used that color scheme for my card. It reminds me of many sets of dishes and a special teapot that I got in Germany when we lived there.
For the background of my card, I adapted a design on the Mother's Day cartridge using "hide selected contour" to embed the lacy cut in a medallion shape.
I used the CRI-Kits blue glitter pens to draw another adapted version of the design on a piece of beige and white patterned paper.
Then I drew the tea set from the Heritage cartridge with the pens. I changed to the blade and cut the design.
I hope you can see the amazing sparkle on the design - the glitter pens are fabulous!
To give more definition and another layer of sturdiness to the tea set cut I cut a shadow in dark blue Core'dinations cardstock.
Here are the assembled layers ready for the card.
I welded the word "tea" from the base font on the Lyrical Letters cartridge. The word was cut at about one inch and the letters are very thin but they did cut nicely.
When I placed the word on the lace background, I tried to line up the letters along lines of the lace design.
I used foam squares from Creative Memories to lift the teapot from the lace background.
If you push down on the back of the square with a tool (in this photo the Cricut hook tool) the backing will pop right off.
Here is a close view of the tea set on the card. These foam squares are fairly low and give a lovely subtle dimension to the tea set.
Here is the exciting part of the blog hop!!!!
