Tea Cup Pop-Up Mothers Day Card

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome. My card for you today uses Karen Burniston's new Tea and Coffee Pop-Up die set to create this gorgeous pop-up tea cup Mothers Day card. 

When I was a little girl, my Granny would bring out her good china whenever we were having a big family dinner, like on Christmas or Thanksgiving. She had all these beautiful Royal Doulton or Royal Albert tea cups and saucers. Some were trimmed with gold, but all of them had beautiful flowers painted on them. I always thought they were so beautiful. So when I seen the Tea and Coffee Pop-Up, I immediately thought of my Granny's cups and saucers. 

For this card, I started with an A2 sized top fold card, using a smooth cream colored cardstock. I used a pretty pink patterned paper for the background of my card. 

I die cut the tea cup from cream cardstock and from a pretty rose patterned paper, then added a trim of gold embossing powder around the edges to create the look like my Granny's tea cups. I glued all the pieces together adding additional die cut areas to give the tea cup and saucer some dimension. 

I then die cut the tea bag, adding some lace ribbon to give it a look like an actual tea bag. I also die cut the spoon from a mirrored cardstock. 

I dug through my dies and found these great dies from Spellbinders that I have had for years and never used them. One was the doily that I placed the pop-up on top of. This is a die set called Royal Circle. I also used another die set from Spellbinders to create the trim on the top and bottom of the card, called Graceful Fans. 

I die cut some flowers and leaves using Karen Burniston's Fun Flowers die set, die cutting them from smooth white cardstock and coloring them in with Copic markers. I added these to the cup and saucer. Then I die cut the Happy Mother's Day sentiment from black and sparkly white cardstock. I glued them together to give the sentiment some dimension. 

For the front of my card, I kept with the same theme, adding another tea cup, just not as fancy. I stamped some sentiments on the front and added some more flowers to give the front some pop!

I am very pleased with how well this card turned out. That gold trim on the tea cup and saucer came out so good. I will definitely do that again. 

I also love coloring in my die cuts, especially flowers, because you can give them a lot of detail, adding something special to your cards. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!! Be sure to visit to check out the new release that came out in February. There are so many fantastic dies to choose from!!!
