You don't usually build your card around a sentiment, but that's exactly what I did for my card today. As I was looking at Kindred Stamps' The Next Space Explorers, the Earl Grey sentiment struck me. As a tea-drinker, it was the perfect place to start.
I went on-line and found a tea cup template and printed it out. After folding a piece of light blue cardstock, I laid the template along the fold and cut out my cup. I had found some narrow sparkly washi tape in Hobby Lobby last week, and it looked like the perfect trim for my tea cup. I then glued down my fussy-cut captain onto the cup and popped on some sequins.
