Tea Cup and Succulents Mother's Day Card

I hope that everyone had a lovely Mother's Day.  I very much enjoyed visits from my children and grandchildren, lots of flowers and cards, and a delicious brunch at DH's golf club.  Perfect!

Here's the card I made for my DDIL and you might notice that I added an extra insert.  This cute, cute tea cup file comes from Mary at SVG Cuts and is part of the Garden Party Box Card set.  However, since I was giving a succulent planter to my DDIL, I wanted to add succulents to the front of my card instead of flowers.




When I had cut the images (from CTMH Flower Market) and arranged them on the front of the cup, it looked flat, flat, flat.  Mary had shaped her flowers to add dimension but I could not do that with the succulent images I had chosen.  Hmmm.  I needed an insert inside the teacup and woo hoo! the patterned trim piece was the right shape and size to do the job although I did cut the side pieces down a quarter of an inch so that it could be glued in the center of the inside of the cup.



I also found that the center of the saucer patterned trim piece would cover the oval hole in the center of the saucer base piece which gave it a finished look. 


So what do you think?   I liked the tea cup card very much.  Mary always designs interesting cards and this one was quick and easy to make - unless you start messing with the flowers!  



 Thanks for visiting with me today.  : )  Christine
