Matching teacups ... Spring Coffee Lovers Style

My cards were created for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
The Blog Hop runs
from 6am Pacific Friday 18th March to 11:55pm Pacific Friday 25th March.

EVERYONE is invited to share a newly created SPRING themed project that includes coffee, tea &/or coffee inspired designs.  The link to where you share your creations is on the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog.  By linking your NEW project you are entered for the chance to win a SUPER Sponsor or FLASH Sponsor prize.  Winners will be announced on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Sunday 27th March.
EVERYONE is also encouraged to comment on all of the projects linked up for the hop too.

I hope you get inspired and join the caffeinated fun with fellow tea & coffee lovers.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to make this pair of cards.
The design is the "3 Piece Tea Cup Card" by Samantha Walker purchased from the Silhouette Design Store.
I enlarged the file so that I could insert gift cards inside, so with the handle, it is 7 1/2" wide and stands 4 1/2" tall.
I also flipped the file, so that I could have the cups with handles on opposite sides, just in case I give them to a couple ... they can be his and hers :)

This was my 1st time using this design, they're so quick and easy to make, very handy for a last minute Thank You, Hello, Get Well, even a Hug-In-A-Mug.
... I'm used to lots of layers and embellishments, so this CAS design is calling for some flowers & bling, maybe even a dangling teabag or sentiment tag.

The textured cardstock is from the American Crafts 100sheet value pack.
I thought the aqua and teal looked cheery and "springy", keeping with the Blog Hop theme.
