I Brake For Digis - First Card as a DT member

Well, my term on the I Brake for Digis DT starts today. :)  I thought I would start off with a card I made for the challenge running right now over at the BrakeFast club (link is in my side bar).  The challenge this week is inchies. I've only every made two cards with inchies, so this was not my usual style of card.  I got these images a little while ago to make some little goodies for Christmas (some re-packaged tea - ssshhh! don't tell my sister) and thought they would work well for an inchie card.  Here's a picture:

Images:  Tea Pot, Tea Bag, Tea Cup - I Brake For Digis digital stamps
Paper:  Bazzill Coredinations, Recollections Kraft cardstock, Patterned paper (unknown - I think it may be Daisy D's), Wausau Exact Index 110# white cardstock (base & images)
Tools & Embellisments:  Prisma pencil crayons, oms, Fiskars small scallop edging scissors, EK Success edge punch, Ribbon (Moderne Home), Curlz MT font (sentiment), sanding block, Cuttlebug embossing folder

The images are adhered with pop-up foam squares.  I wanted the images to look a little old-fashioned, so I used the small scallop edge scissors as a corner rounder and set one scallop in slightly and nipped off the corners.  I had to put my reading glasses on for that task!

Overall, I like how the card turned out.  It was fun making my first card for the IBFD design team.

Talk to you later...
