Red Dotted Teapot on Lace Border

A red dotted teapot on a white lace border.  I like the kitchen decor suggested by the bright yellow stripes and textured turquoise green.  The teapot's shape is accented with red marker coloring on the spout, lid, and base.  I'll use this card to send "warmest wishes" to our church shut-ins.  

Note: the gray border is background, not part of the card.

Card details:

  • Card stock is Neenah solar white and Paper Source jade (turquoise green).
  • Patterned paper is from PTI bright buttercup (yellow) and pure poppy (red) "+ white basics" patterned paper (retired).
  • Embossing folder is Stampin' Up subtle.
  • Dies are Papertrey Ink (PTI) tea for two (retired) and Memory Box charlotte lace (retired). 
  • I used Copic marker R29 to add some solid color to the teapot. 
  • The sentiment "warmest wishes" is from PTI sentiment staples: warmest wishes, stamped with PTI pure poppy ink.

Christmas Card 2020

This year's card is a Nativity scene with shepherds and an angel.  It's computer-printed on Neenah solar white card stock.

Since 2010, I've used one of my annual Nativity drawings for the card fronts, with a greeting inside "Wishing you all the joy of Christmas."  To see past years' Christmas cards that I've drawn, click here, then scroll down.
