IM65 – Tea Time

It’s Monday again…hmmm…seems like one of these comes around once every 7 days.  We might need to do something about that!  Just kidding…I love Monday because it is time for another Inspiration!  Here’s the one for this week…

Now…I bet you’re thinking…oh…I think I can guess this one.  Well…hopefully this will be a little bit of a surprise…

This was one of those inspirations where I knew basically I knew I was going to use the gears but I didn’t want to go masculine with it.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/4, run through the Tufted embossing folder, wrap two pieces of the Petal Pink Metallic ribbon around the panel and add to card front
  • Smoky Slate – cut out gear, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer cut out 3 smaller gears, save inside circles, add to to the card front
  • Pear Pizzazz – stamp greeting using Memento Black, cut out using Classic Label punch
  • Whisper White – stamp larger rose and two smaller one – color using Blends:  Calypso Coral Light, Petal Pink Dark and Light, Mossy Meadow Light and Old Olive Light, cut everything out, add to card front (along with the 3rd Silver Glimmer gear) using dimensionals
  • Add the inside circles (plus some more cut out using 1/8″ hole punch) to card front along with some Grapefruit Grove Faceted Dots
  • Add some 1/8″ Silver Glimmer circles to the center of each small flower

Isn’t this just delightful!  Gears…not just for masculine cards!
