Tea for Three

Our challenge to you this week at Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge is to "cut it out" and use 3D, paper tole or decoupage on your project.  You must use a digital stamp from Isabella's Sketchbook on your project.  If you don't have one (or want a few new ones), Isabella is having a sale today.  For today only, Wednesday, July 21st all digital stamps at Isabella's store are only $2.00 each.

I tried something new this time and created my own tea bag holder card.  I am a little unhappy with the inside because it didn't need to be quite as deep as I made it but I will try it again.  Each one of the cups has been popped up a little higher than the one above it with foam dots, which is where the 3D aspect of my card can be found.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
