Teacup Birthday Card

I have another birthday card for you today.  I made this one for my master teacher, who remains one of my best friends after 20 years!  We always had tea at morning recess when I was student teaching with her, so I thought this would be appropriate.

I began with a cream colored card base sized at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  Using my Gypsy, I welded together a scalloped border and a rectangle for the brown layer.  The border is a 1" x 6" one from the Cricut Ribbons & Rosettes cartridge, but I adjusted the width to 5 1/2" real size.  The rectangle was also sized at a width of 5 1/2".  I didn't worry so much about the height (just making it big enough), because I found it easier to cut it with the Cricut and then use my paper trimmer to adjust the height to 4". The blue layer is 5 1/2" x 3 5/8", and I stamped "Happy Birthday" from My Creative Time's Gift Card Sentiments stamp set.

The cute teacup is cut from Love You a Latte at 2 1/2".  I stamped "Enjoy" from My Creative Time's This & That stamp set.  So sweet!
