PTI Spoil yourself friend card.

Hello everyone,

The week is rushing by but I took some time today to make a card for the Passion for Papertrey challenge. The theme is friends this time and I think there is nothing better than chatting with a friend over a cup of tea. Unless, of course, it is chatting with a cup of tea and a scrumptious cake!

I got the idea for the card when I was playing with the Rickrack die and noticed that the waste strip reminded me of the shelf edging you sometimes see on Welsh Dressers, and where you have a Welsh Dresser you have to have cups hanging don't you?

I used:-
SU card Close to Cocoa and Mellow Moss.
PTI Fillable frame 4 die, Teacup die and the Rickrack die along with a tiny tag punch. Stamps were from Fillable Frames 4, Tea for Two Additions, All About You and the Spoil yourself sentiment came from another set in my stash.

That's all for now.

What a clever use for the rick rack die!!! I totally agree - nothing like a good cuppa and cake amongst friends!
Thanks so much for playing along with us on A Passion for Papertrey!

That's such a great idea Carol - you're absolutely right, its just like old fashioned shelf edging! I'll be saving this in my inspiration file right now! Love your card.
