national tea day shaker card

Happy National Tea Day friends! I'm joining some talented ladies from Honey Bee Stamps & the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog to have a little tea-themed hop! (If you're hopping with us, you should be arriving from Galina's awesome blog.)
I created a punny word shaker card to celebrate today, a best tea card for my bestie! And I have a little video of the process too...



Some tips for creating word shakers...
  • Use a light pencil line to help line up individual letter dies.
  • Secure perfectly lined up dies with low-tack tape before die cutting.
  • Add a little glue around letter openings before adhering acetate.
Grab a cup of tea and head to the next stop on our hop to see what the fabulous Keiko has created!

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!
