You will need:
Your basic card kit, plus...
Pink & white card
Pink patterned papers
Brown fineliner pen
Snip, score and fold a piece of pink patterned paper to make your card blank. Layer strips of coordinating patterned papers across the bottom and left edges of the card front to decorate.
Use the template to cut the cup and saucer pieces from patterned paper. Layer up the pieces with sticky foam pads for a 3D effect. Stick the cup and saucer to the card front with more sticky foam pads.
Now make a paper bow! Make a loop of patterned paper, then wrap a short strip of paper around the middle. Fix this to the edge of your paper saucer.
Write your greeting on a strip of patterned paper, then edge with doodled stitching. Slide on a simple 'buckle' cut from paper, then wrap the greeting strip around your card front.
