You're my cup of tea!
Here's how I made it.
3 different blue cardstocks
once upon a princess
black ink pad
black embossing powder
stampendous swirly-style stamp.
Okie dokie, so how I did it:
I welded together the teacup from Once Upon A Princess at a width of 6.6 and height of 4.18 on the gypsy. I also cut another out of a lighter blue for the inner liner.
I printed on light blue "You're my cup of tea" from my printer in the font: a yummy apology. (PS, you can dowload a TON of free fonts if you google "free fonts") I used the Center Point on my cricut and cut out from Storybook the marquee style thingie (I know, technical term) on the page that says "once upon a time". Light blue is cute at 2" and darker is 2 1/4". I layered them together with my ATG and popped them up wtih popdots.
I used my stamp, black stamp pad and black embossing powder on the front of the card. I assume you know how to do that, considering. I then wrapped a ribbon around it. Now because of the curve of the card, it's slightly off. I put the pop-dotted statement on top of the ribbon.
Then I realized I messed up. After I sprayed the flowers (I used 5, 2 on 1 flower, 3 on another) with shimmer spray and they dried, I realized I hit one of the flowers with the black ink when I was stamping so I did it to both flowers. Not the desired look I was going for, but eh. life happens. I added silver brads (I opted over the blue ones I had. no need for blue overkill.) to the centers and atg'd them to the card.
