Keep Calm Card with Emma Ivemey

Hello crafty friends! Today I would like to share a fun card I made with the help of Southern Ridge Trading Co.

Us English people have a love-hate relationship with football (soccer), which has been going on for quite a while. Every four years, there is a World Cup competition, and it tends to make us all go a bit crazy for a few weeks. Usually our team plays badly, and goes home in some sort of disgrace. This year however, we actually did get through to the semi-final. We lost, but it was still a huge improvement on previous years.

With this in mind, I decided to use the Southern Ridge Trading Co “Tea Time” set to make a “Keep Calm” card. We may have lost the football, but at least we still have tea!

I used Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops in bright white on the milk jug, which gives it a ceramic look. (Allow to dry overnight for best results!) The teapot and teacup have been painted white and decoupaged with chintz-style patterned paper to remind us of those happy days when tea was always served from pots.

I guess we’ll have to wait another four years for another shot at the World Cup, but in the meantime, we’ll just have a cup of tea and everything will be right with the world.
