Thank You for Your Hospitali-tea Card

Created this card with a tea theme.

Used a Sizzix die, Vintage Scale, for first time with Kraft cardstock and recycled cardboard from a box for sturdiness and trimmed to look like a table. Embossed the Kraft cardstock w/ Woodgrain embossing folder to make it look more like a table. Added lace to be like a tablecloth. 

Stamped (used pink ink), die cutted & paper pieced (used white cardstock & floral scrapbook paper) the tea pot & tea cup with saucer using Die-namics tea stamps/dies. Stamped sentiment.
