When a friend gives you card stock...

Or in this case a bunch of cards that had openings pre-cut into them.

provided a challenge to get me using them.
Many have ovals and circles and I chose the square for this card.

 It is a white card so I grabbed my patterned paper and punches to decide which to use in the space provided. Once punched I used foam tape to place the cup and pot in the space.
 Then I had to decide what to place on  the front as the tea pot and tea cup weren't dark enough.
 I found the large background stamp with all the tea names on it. Sorry I don't remember the company? 
Feel free to tell me if you know!
I pulled out my Misti and my Kaleidacolor pad.
 Where the square was open on the card I put a Post-it note to avoid inking the inside of the card.
 Then I was able to make multiple stampings with the same effect.
 It will be perfect for the shut in cards!

Though these cards were punched out already I'm sure you could use a die to cut out any shape you would like anywhere on the card.
