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.

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Cheerio,
