General Cards

Time for Tea!

I had a lot of fun this past week-end making cards.  We had a lot of rain….so I made a lot of cards.  I posted this card on my Instagram (Pat’s Card Corner) and promised more details, so here you go!


This card was made using the TIme for Tea stamp set, the coordinating Spot of Tea Framelit Dies and the Tea Room Designer Series Paper.

When I first saw the Tea Room papers, I wasn’t sure about some of the designs, but after playing around with the papers and all the different combinations,,,well I realized how many of the colors remind me of the fall….yellows, greens, oranges and maroon.  Especially the last two colors…orange and maroon.  Now to most people these colors wouldn’t seem like a good combination.


But not only do I like these colors….I wear these colors too because they just happen to be the colors of my favorite college football team….the Virginia Tech Hokies!  The picture above looks a little more purpleish….but it’s close enough for me.  And the background even resembles “Hokie tracks”….the footprints left by our mascot, the Hokie Bird!
