Crafty Cardmakers Challenge: Step Away from the Square

A friend at our church was diagnosed with breast cancer, she has had surgery, finished chemo and is now doing radiation. She is such a trooper and has such a great attitude and never complains but does feel puny. Needed something different than another thinking of you card. I was looking at the teacups I got from my gramma and thought why not make a teacup shaped card. Crafty Cardmakers challenge is to step away from the square so here it is.
I didnt have any paper with that type of small print so gathered a few little stamps and made 3 sheets of my own dp. It looks a lot like the print on my tea cup. I cut out a teacup shape for the card and decorated it and then thought I could send some tea to go with it. Covered a eye glass case box I had and decorated it and then made covers for the tea bags and the little tab on the string. I made a litte tag with a friendship saying and tucked it under the ribbon to be used for a little bookmark. I used the MS lacy heart punch and the Spellbinders label #10 for the tag on the cup and the label on the box and a scalloped square for the little saying. I had a little teabag stamp and different tea names that I used for the center of the label.
