Special Moments Tea Cup

I have mixed emotions about this card. It looks pretty and I like it.. BUT.. It does not have enough LAYERS!! It feels like I am missing something.. But the card turned out pretty. Believe me, the card was resisting so much and wouldn't let me add anything else to it.. I just had to let it be..

This is the second card for my upcoming "Shaped Cards" class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make three different cards in this class, I am still working on the third one. To see the first card please click here. This class is scheduled for:

This card measures 5 1/2" x 5 3/4".

Again, I had made the template for this card all on my own ;-) I used very pretty white cardstock from Paper Cuts, it is almost like Shimmery White from Stampin Up but a little bit heavier. You can't see on the photos but it has a very pretty shimmer to it when it heats the light. The front of the cup was embossed with the Diamonds Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. Ovals were cut with Nestabilites.

The flower and the sentiment are from the same Cling Mount stamp set by Hero Arts. I think this sentiment is just perfect for the tea cup!! Both the sentiment and the flower were heat embossed with Ranger's Embossing Pearl in Gold, this is the first time I have used this embossing powder, it matches the gold cardstock perfectly!!! I embossed the flower three times, cut out the flower to layer on the front of the card and another flower and the leafs for the inside. Image was colored with Twinkling H2Os. I also added a light wash of blue color to the cup for some dimension.
