Teapot Thank You Card

I am sending two amazing ladies these "Thank You" cards. One will go to my aunt for organizing our family vacation yet another year. She has planned almost all of our vacations and she does a WONDERFUL job. I think organizing a week long vacation for almost 50 people would be daunting, but she handles it perfectly. We had an awesome time!! And the second card is going to my grandma (and my grandpa by proxy) for starting this amazing family tradition all those years ago.

I started this card by choosing some amazing papers. I just love the 6x6 paper pads I buy at Shop Pumpkin Spice. There prices are soo amazing. The prices range from $3.50 to $4.50 per 6x6 paper pad!! Can't beat it.

I started with two sheets from Cosmo Cricket "DeLovely" and one sheet from Echo Park "Summer Days".

I made the teapot cut from Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge. I cut one layer and the shadow. The three dimensional flowers are from Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge. I had some difficulty with these flowers at first, getting them to lay and roll up right. But after some playing around and finally getting out my hot glue gun, I made some successful flowers. I am thinking I will love this cart!!

I made the second card with some different embellishments. I love doing multiple cards, cutting the same image two or three times from my Cricut. But I tend to embellish differently, just for fun I guess.
