Vintage Tea Time Card

Used a new Tim Holtz die Tea Time I bought at Hobby Lobby last week. Saw that HL & Michaels had a couple new TH items. HL continues to have the dies but Michaels does not have dies anymore but they have new TH stamps/framelits sets.

Sanded the TH cardstock with TH sander before die cutting. Added twine to tea bag using TH stapler.

Used a TH Doily stencil which has a Rose & leaf design I've had for awhile but think this is first time using. Used TH Distress Inks w/ stencil.

Stamped Die-Namics sentiment.
