Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

A weave for you today -

I started by making a background. I stamped one of the stamps from the Justrite Playful Painted Trio Stamp Set onto a piece of Coconut White Card 3 times using CS Baked Peach Colour Cloud using a Smoothie to create a background. Once dry, I cut Sue Wilson's Classic Weaving Die from it.

I cut Sue's Striped Weaving Die from Peach Card. I cut this die cut into wide pair strips and wove each pair through the stamped Classic die cut.

I made a frame out of Peach Card using dies #2 and #4 from Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B. I added it to my woven background using 3D Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess using scissors.

I cut die #4 from Sue's Madeleine Die Set out of Peach Card and dies #3 and #4 together out of Coconut White Card.

I cut the Justrite Happy Birthday Sentiment Die out of Coconut White Card. I added Clear Perfect Medium to the die cut then Phill Martin CS Graceful Peach Embossing Powder and heat set. I added more ink, more powder and heat set.

I cut Sue's Star Floweer Cluster out of Peach and Coconut White Card and added 3mm White Pearls to the centre of the flowers.

I completed my card adding some 5mm White Pearls to the corners of my frame and mats of Coconut White and Peach Card.
