Happy New Year……And stay well!

Happy New Year to all my blog friends!

Here it is a new year and we are all deciding on how to improve ourselves.  I think that I’m going to try and send more handmade cards, not just to close friends but also to casual friends and neighbors.  I know I would love to receive a handmade card from someone thinking about me.

My hubby and I were at a New Year’s Eve party last night and heard so many stories about people being sick, so I decided to share one of my favorite get well cards that I have made.  I call it my “Downton Abbey” card because it has lace, pearls, tea cup, and of course…tea.

I started with an ivory A7 card base and then layered a pale pink cardstock layer and then an antique pink and beige floral printed patterned paper. The lace die is the Decorative Blossom Corners from Heartfelt Creations cut from the same light pink cardstock and then antiqued with Distress Ink.  The tea cup stamps and dies are also from Heartfelt Creations and colored with Zig markers.  Tag is a punch with 2 pieces glued back to back with the cord between hung from the inside of the cup.  The hardest part was attaching the cup only along the edges.  I tried several different adhesives, tapes and glue until I finally was successful using Alene’s Tacky Glue.  Added some pearls and tucked in a tea bag.  Voila!  A cute get well card bound to make someone smile and think about you when they have that hot cup of tea.

Hope everyone stays healthy and have a wonderful Happy New Year!
