TLC280, Teapot & Posies!

Hello, I just wanted to share the little gift I made for my friend Sandee's Birthday! Sandee just recently started selling Tea, and when I saw this Teapot available at My Time Made Easy, I knew it would be perfect.

I also used todays TLC280, paper posies to help decorate the Teapot. The flower was made with 8 circle scallops punched out of white. Then I lightly sponged the the edges with groovy guava. Then I spritzed them with water and crumpled them up. Then I flattened them out, stacked them and added a brad in the center.

The swirls and leaves and wild wasabi, edges sponged. The leaves were made with a large Fiskars mint punch and I cut them down a bit to make them smaller.

Well the Teapot was easy to put together, but this is one case where a thinner cardstock (not stampin up) would have worked even better!

I made the sentiment on the front with the Vintage labels set, and dimensionals! The 3x3 card was made to match, and I filled the Teapot with biscotti!

Have a Great Day!
Laurie
