Tea-rific Z fold Card

 For the second card for the La Costa Ladies I chose this fun z-fold card. Here is a picture of the front while the card is folded flat. It is the same size as a regular A2 card so it fits into a normal envelope.


I picked up some new stamps yesterday at Stamp N Deliver by Great Impressions. It is hard to see in the photo, but on the back panel under the ribbon is a vine type background stamp. I stamped it in Hibiscus palette ink by PTI, the same shade as the cardstock and ribbon. Tone on tone stamping can be very effective. The front image of the three teacups is just adorable and makes a great any occasion card. The curved sentiment on top is by My Favorite Things. I thought it was a cute way to begin. I did a bit of hand-doodling along the edge of the white panel. I must say that makes me extremely nervous, what if my doodles get bigger as I go, if the spacing isn’t even. I must say, I was glad when it was finished. The yellow panel is also by PTI (Papertrey Ink) and the color is Lemon Tart. I punched it with the SU scalloped border punch.
