Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the woven background on this one, I cut Sue Wilson's Classic Weaving Die out of Coconut White Card, Sue's Striped Weaving Die out of Teal Card and out of Aqua Card. I separated the coloured die cuts into pairs of strips. I wove them through the Classic die cut - 2 sets of Teal, 2 sets of Aqua, 2 sets of Teal and so on till my piece was completed.

I made a frame out of Coconut White and Aqua Card using Sue's Ornate Pierced Squares Die Set. I added it to my woven background using 3D Foam and trimmed away the excess using scissors. I added some mats of all 3 colours of the card used and an 8mm Aqua Dazzler to each corner.

I cut die #4 from Sue's Madeleine Die Set out of Aqua Card and dies #3 and #4 together out of Coconut White Card. I cut the Justrite Happy Birthday Sentiment Die out of Teal Card.

I cut Sue's Lace Edged Leaves out of Teal Card.

I made a couple of flowers out of Aqua and Coconut White Card using the largest 2 pairs of dies from Sue's Striped Nasturtium Die Set and added an 8mm Aqua Dazzler to the centre of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by.
