Hello and TGIF, friends! In keeping up with yesterday's coffee themed card, today's slimline card is all about bubble tea! Also called boba tea or pearl milk tea, bubble tea is a Taiwanese tea-based drink invented in the 1980s, which is shaken with ice to create the "bubbles", a foamy layer on top of the drink and chewy tapioca balls are added that typically fall to the bottom. I've got to admit, while I've only had one, I think bubble tea looks better than it tastes! It's a weird texture thing for me. Have YOU ever tried bubble tea?

This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". A slimline card is designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized mailing envelope with no extra postage needed. The base of this slimline card is made from Coastal Cabana cardstock. Using the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Scallop die, I cut the frame from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I lined the back of each oval window with pieces of rainbow paper from the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper pack. I printed out the "Bubbly Feels" digital stamp set onto Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and colored in the images with Copic markers. I added a few highlights using a white gel pen. I fussy cut the tea cups out and adhered them to the card using 3M foam adhesive. I printed the sentiment strip also onto Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I notched the left end before adhering it to the card. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the bubble teas for added sparkle.
Here is the "Bubbly Feels" stamp set by Graciellie Design that I used to create today's card:
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend!
