Stamperia Brocante Tea Cups Easel Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon Flowers & Trims

Hello, Friends!  If you’re a tea lover like me, I think you’re going to enjoy this Stamperia Brocante Tea Cups Easel Card.  I’ve dressed it up with beautiful mulberry flowers and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Do you love teal and tan color palettes as much as I do?  It’s such a calming color combo, and it really works on this 6×6 easel card.  I’ve clustered up an array of RRR Mulberry Flowers (listed below) with a beautiful Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon Bow.

Vintage buttons pulled from my stash add that antique shop feel to the card while precious silver tea charms and a teeny tiny spoon and tray make this card extra special.  I could not resist adding a shimmering Reneabouquets butterfly to the mix.  It was a perfect color match!

A Peek Inside

The tea party continues inside the card. This time, you can find a small tag pocket built into the easel mechanism.

It’s always fun to add a surprise element to a card, don’t you think?

I’ve added a gift card pocket that doubles as a stopper for the easel mechanism.  The gift card holder has a little pocket inside as well as room to add a little note.

If you haven’t tried tying a bow with wrinkled ribbon yet, I highly recommend it.  Because it is very thin, you can really get a nice “pouf” effect.  The texture is not too soft, so the bows hold their shape well.  And, it comes in a rainbow of colors, which is always nice.  Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon goes with just about anything, and almost seems to change hues depending on the papers/flowers it adorns.

Suddenly I feel the need for a cup of tea, so I think I’ll go rustle one up in the kitchen.

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Cheerio,

    Oooh my, these papers are stunning and you have done it again with the tea card. The Renea butterfly, well, you couldn’t have a better match, it is perfect. Thanks for sharing Kathy, love it.
    We have moved, are very tired, but return south today as the boat is under contract already. I guess it is time to say goodbye to her and hope the young man has as wonderful a time on her as we have over the years.
    Not long now and the arty space will begin, I am definitely getting withdrawal symptoms, and your posts continue to keep me motivated.

    While I always enjoy tea images on a card, it is the ink distressing that is getting my creative attention. This singular detail seems to pull everything together into a cohesive unit. Easel cards continue to be a favorite card shape for me…love that design elements can be spread over different planes. Beautiful floral cluster. Butterfly brings a nice finish to this tea-lightful card! I love seeing real lace on a card. Wonderful project!

    Love the card! Those Tea service dies look like Anna Griffin dies which I have and love so much I want to just keep them…They look fabulous on your card and maybe you have inspired me to use them! Lol
