I simply love blue and white china and have it in many places around the house apart from everyday use. I think the willow pattern is a very attractive and traditional design for a teapot and has lovely childhood memories for me too.
This image from the Anna Browne cardmaking pad makes a lovely birthday or everyday card.
the card measures 7 inches square and has layers of cream, light blue and darker blue and interspersed between the layers are some teatime doilies. You can easily buy these ready made or you may have a cutting die that makes doilies – either is fine!
The pearl heart is actually a little buckle and the ribbon has been threaded through – if you don’t have that then just four little self adhesive pearls stuck to the ribbon would be an easy and attractive alternative.
