A Little Sunshine

Saying goodbye to Tart and Tangy

A little bit of sunshine is what any person that is feeling under the weather needs!  This card is a response to just that…a sweet little get well card!  Tart and Tangy is a cute little set that is perfect on its own or just plain fun when paired up with an unexpected set, like Morning Cup.

Vellum Pocket Card It’s been some time since I made a pocket card but one thing lead to another and this “extra little something” pocket card came to be.  The orange slice became my background for the “card front”.  I used a vellum strip to create the pocket with no worries of adhesive showing through!  I just created a larger strip and folded it behind the large Whisper White panel and voila…no glue marks!  Do you ever amaze yourself and wonder why you hadn’t thought of that before?

Vellum Pocket Reveal This little pocket card holds an extra surprise, orange-tangerine tea, the perfect accompaniment to the orange and tea cup stamps! The tea bag is held inside a glassine envelope to keep it fresh…for how long I do not know! *smile* I would suggest placing the tea bag in when you know you are going to give the card!  The strawberry,cherry or apple would also be perfect stamps if you have those flavors of tea available!
