YPP Cricuteers:Tea Bag Cards

Hello There, I signed up for a swap at Your Paper Pantry in the Cricuteers Group. The swap is called Tea Bag Cards. You have until the 5th of the month to sign up for most swaps. Then they should be mailed out by the 25th. April is a great months to join YPP.  New subscribers can purchase  Tim Holtz Distress Markers  for $80 which includes S&H in the U.S. Int'l/Canada shipping prorated. You should contact Roxy Furlong for all the information. 
I was playing with my Gypsy and trying to come up with a Teapot card. I used A Childs Year and came up with this card.
I welded a teapot and teacup together. Then I copied it and flipped that image. Next I welded the two together. That became the base card. Then I cut a teapot and a teacup from DP and two cups from card stock.  I covered the front of the card (the teapot) with the DP and one cardstock teacup. I left the top of the cup opened. Then I layer the DP cup and the cardstock cup just to make is sturdy and put that one on the inside of the card. The DP was to thin to hold a teabag.

I show you how I made the little teabag that I used in the front cup in this video.

If you have any questions about materials or how I created this card please just ask. I would be happy to give your more informations.

Thanks for stopping,
