Morning Tea

This is great idea for Mothers Day! Morning Tea by Cibele Glazer, this card uses a Recipes for Break Time Beverages card topper. Cibele describes the techniques she employed to make this elegant card:

'Using the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares dies, I cut the image and mat and attached it to a card base along with a gold Wilton Doily. I edged all the cardstock with gold ink. I used a gold paint pen to go around the edges of the cup for some added shine.'

We'll be back with even more ideas using Card Toppers soon. Be sure to take a look at our Facebook page for any ideas you may have missed.
