Beary Special Tea

Hi everyone, today it's Carol and I am here to show you my "Beary Special Tea".  Two themes in one card that I just adore-bears and tea.  What a winning combination.  Wouldn't this be cute to send a special little girl as an invite to tea.  You can buy very inexpensive chine teacups and teapots and throw a vintage tea party with just a few desserts and classic cucumber sandwiches.  With very little effort you can create memories to last a lifetime!


This was such a fun project.  I cut my bear from white card stock and then used Ranger Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress Inks to color this sweet bear.  I used a bit of pink chalk to color the bears cheeks and the inside of the ears.  I cut my cup and saucer with designer paper and the doily with white paper and distress inked all the edges.  The edges have been kissed with stardust stickles.

Just click on the picture above and it will take you right to the die.  As you can see I used the bow from the rabbit on the bear and also the heart and flower.  That's whats so fun about these dies-no rules!!!  Also, I carried the heart design element on my embellishments for matching interest on the card.

Thanks for taking a look at today's project.  Be inspired to create wonderful memories for those special girls in your life.  Until next time-have a great day!

Bear Hugs,
Carol

Love the lacy effect of those dies. That bear and tea cup are absolutely adorable! Great choice in papers too. So colorful and cheerful. They all go together very well.

Awww! Carol, me thinks you need a granddaughter really badly, to spoil her with the ultimate in high teas! LOL You've got such wonderful ideas. I'll bet that birdcage with twinkling lights would be on display at one of your teas. :)
