Like a tea-tray in the sky pull-tab card

Hola!

I hope you are doing well! If you follow me, you might notice this year I haven’t share many cards, and I frequently say I had a lack of inspiration. Well, the thing is I’m pregnant! And, although I’m super happy and I’m doing great, I feel a little bit tired and sometimes overwhelmed by this COVID situation. And to be honest, I don’t feel like crafting as much as I used to.

But today I have a pull-tab card to share with you. I recently got Mama Elephant “Tea Time” dies, which was in my wishlist for so long. I took inspiration from Alice in Wonderland and made an interactive card in which the dormouse peeks out from the teapot when you pull the tab. How fun is that?

This is an A7 card because I needed it to be big enough to fit the pull-tab mechanism and the sentiment. I used watercolor paper for the background, blending Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks. I splattered some water and added some flicks of silver watercolor paint. I needed a custom made sentiment, so I used Mama Elephant “Sketchy Letters” stamp set to spell it, and heat embossed it on white.

The teapot was inked using Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress inks. Then, I decorated it stamping some images from Mama Elephant “Brushed Florals” stamp set. I didn’t want the image to have a bold black border, so I stamped it using Memento Peanut Brittle ink and colored it with alcohol markers, adding some accents with color pencils.

For the pull-tab mechanism, I used Waffle Flower “Pull-tabs” dies. I used foam squares to adhere the background to the card base and the teapot to the background. Finally, I added some embellishments from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Here you can watch a short clip of the cute dormouse peeking out from the teapot:

I love everything related to Alice in Wonderland, so if you are a fan too, I hope you like this card!
