Why not make someone's day a little sweeter with a handmade invitation for tea? Have a look at the pretty invitation design team member Mitra Pratt came up with for LESSology Challenge #62: Handmade invitation.
I must admit that this month's challenge had me a bit stumped: Make a handmade invitation. Create an invite to a special event. Think beyond a simple card.
In fact, this little tea cup came home with me from the Corning ReStore but wasn't for this specific project. I just liked the gold and the black. Suddenly I thought up making a tea party invite with this little vintage cup and some tea bags.
Heck, you could even stick some pieces of special chocolate in the cup, or a biscotti. Yum! I happen to know for a fact that little vintage cups like this are quite common at second hand stores. Making the tea pot for the invite was super easy too. I used a cutting file from THE CUTTING CAFE called The Tea Pot Shaped Card Set.
The colors were inspired by my tea pot & that gold tin that also came from Corning ReStore. I used gold embossing powder on the very top of the lid and the handle to match. So pretty!
