Mother's Day Tea

Just stopping in REAL QUICK to post another Mother's Day card!  I haven't played with my Memory Box window and shutter dies lately, and this card was just begging to be made!  {If you're playing along, this window die cut has been a dresser and fireplace as well:)} 

Putting this card together could not have been easier.  The Memory Box dies are a dream to cut and fit together perfectly.  I used a bit of enamel paint for the handles of the sideboard.  The tiny tea set from Waltzingmouse Stamps is the perfect scale for this little scene!  The sentiment banner was printed (Black Jack font) and die cut with my new Die-namics Fishtail Flags Stax from MFT.  The rolled felt flower is from my lovely friend (and awesome cardmaker) Jeanne. I love how sweet this little card turned out!  The only thing I would change is to use embossing powder for the tea set (so that the pattern doesn't bleed through).    

I hope everyone has a fantastic week!  Thanks for taking a peek!
{Aloha, jj}

  1. Wow, so adorable. So clever.

  2. JJ this is so sweet - I love what you do with that window die! It looks great as a little cabinet complete with little handles! The pretty background, the tea set, and the felt flower make this a real beauty for mom!

  3. I love it! Love it. The little handles, the amazing detail on the shutters, the perfect fabby rose accent...polka dot leaves? Every element is perfect.
    And wait, when did you change Cooper's biography? It made me laugh out loud...he & Abby have similar duties ;)
