Three Cups of Tea - Shape Cards for Paper Crafting

You can't go wrong with tea and coffee cards.
Here's 3 of our personal favorites from
My Scrap Chick's Design Team.
A Cup Full of Get Well Wishes
The black and white papers for this tea cup work perfectly with a stamped image.  The stamp is called Sugar Crash and is from an older Stampabilities Set but Sue also does lots of other colored images from the House Mouse so be sure to visit her blog, you'll love her colored versions of these little characters.

 Tea and coffee are popular subjects for card makers.
The title of the book "Three Cups of Tea" by Greg Mortensen was inspired by a saying told to Greg by Haji Ali... 
"The first time you share tea with a Balti,
you are a stranger.
The second time you take tea,
you are an honored guest.
The third time you share a cup of tea,
you become family."
Cherry Teacup Card
Kristin's teacup is a cute easel card that folds flat for sliding into an envelope and popping in the mail. Perfect for sharing a cup of tea with a friend across the miles.

 A cup of tea or coffee,
it's more than just a hot drink.
It's a cup of comfort on a cold day.
A cup friendship when shared with others. 
A cup full of healing to someone
who is under the weather. 

Teacup Birthday Card
Shirley made this frilly teacup card in the birthday girl's favorite colors. She also enlarged the card a wee bit so she could tuck in a gift card. How sweet is that?

Beautiful Cards using the Freebie Friday Designs

Today's post features beautiful cards from our design team using designs that started out as "Freebie Fridays."
Every week since 2008 we have sent out a newsletter with a "new" freebie design and cutting files. It's a great way to try out our designs, file setup and the download process.
Each freebie is available for a week at no charge. You simply add them to your account just like any regular purchase and checkout free. After that you can login to your account at MyScrapChick at anytime, whether it's today or next year, and then download the files right to your pc.

Thinking of You Card

Julie combined 2 Freebie Friday designs to create her beautifully elegant card and added her own circle cutout with a stamped greeting.

The designs shown in this post are no longer free but you can get all the new ones coming each week. Just sign up for the newsletter and enjoy all the great designs to come.

Apple Blossoms and Box in a Card

Get Well Bouquet Card
This adorable Box in a Card uses the same Apple Blossom as the previous design so Julie is finding a lot of ways to use the same flower design for different projects.

Checkered Border Card and Good Words Set

Mothers Day Card
Kristin used a Freebie Friday card that came with a card base, front layers and a simple posie. She used the same cutting file for the posie and resized it to make 2 more for a corner bouquet. The lettered greeting was also a freebie at one time and it works perfect with her Mothers Day Card.
