There's Always Time for Tea!

We used to make a lot of 6" x 3" cards and I think this particular stamp truly lends itself to that size card. I still have some of our nice envelopes left that fit this size, but we can also make the envelopes with our Envelope Punch Board.

Since people who know me always associate me with tea, so this stamp set is perfect! So far, I've been using the Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack in all my designs (partly because I always seem to end up with leftover dsp when it's discontinued), but that isn't absolutely necessary. And I've taken to using Baker's Twine for the little teabag tags. I have quite an accumulation of the twine in both current and retired colors. The Bermuda Bay is still available. The narrow ribbon, however, is retired.

I have to admit that I "fussy cut" out the stack of teacups. To get inside the handles, I punched a small hole to insert my paper snips without risk of tearing or bending the element.
