Sweet Baby

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the woven background, I started by cutting Sue Wilson's Classic Weaving Die out of Coconut White Card and then embossed it using Couture Creations Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder. I cut Sue's Striped Weaving Die out of Aqua Card twice. I glued the 2 striped die cuts together, offsetting them to fill in the gaps. I cut these strips into sets of 2 and 3. For my weave, I wove a set of 3 strips through the Classic die cut under 1, over 1, under 1, over 1 and so on. Then using a set of 2 strips I wove over 1, under 1, over 1, under 1 and so on. I repeated these 2 rows until my piece was complete.

I made a frame using dies #2 and #4 from Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B. I added it to my background using 3D Foam and trimmed away the excess using scissors. I added a piece of Coconut White Card cut using die #5 from the same set, and mats of Aqua and Coconut White Card.

I cut die #4 from the Sue's Madeleine Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I cut dies #3 and #4 from the same set out Aqua Card. I cut the sentiment from Sue's Baby Onesie Die Set out of Coconut White Card.

I cut Sue's Star Flower Cluster out of Coconut White and Aqua Card and added 3mm White Pearls to the centre of the flowers. I cut the stork and bundle from Sue's Stork and Baby Die Set out of Aqua Card.

I completed my card by adding some 3mm White Pearls to my sentiment disc and a 5mm White Pearl to each corner of my frame.
