tea for two!

i realize that mother's day has come and gone, but we pixies are always working a month AHEAD, so my project today is a pair of pretty cards i've already sent to my mother and mother-in-law. see those flower bouquets sitting in their teacups? well the flowers are sassafras dimensional diecuts, and if you pull them straight up, they slide out of the cup to reveal a little message. mine happen to be mother's day greetings, but you could use the same idea for a graduation, a birthday, or even a get well card!


the idea for these came partially from this clever card that the lovely june made last month... with a little bit of a lauren twist... and ingredients from this month's awesome pixie dust paperie kit, SUMMER OF LOVE, which looks like this:



you can read more about the making of these cards, see additional photos--including the "insides" of the cups, learn more about our kits, and even enter a fabulous giveaway... ALL on the pixie blog, of course. check it out, darlings! ♥
