Mint Cupcake

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the weave on this one, I started by cutting Sue Wilson's Classic Weaving Die out of Coconut White Card and then ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Couture Creations Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder. I cut Sue's Striped Weaving Die out of Peach, Lilac, Sky Blue, Custard and Aqua Card. I cut them all into pairs of strips. I wove them in and out of the Classic die cut working through all of the pastel colours.

I made some frames using Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B - I cut dies #2 and #5 out of Coconut White Card, dies #2 and #4 out of Custard Card and dies #2 and #3 out of Aqua Card. I glued them all together and added them to my woven background using 3D Foam and trimmed away the excess using scissors. I added some mats and a 5mm White Pearl to the corners.

I stamped the cupcake from the Justrite Make a Wish Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Phill Martin's Frosted Aqua Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Happy Birthday Circle Die Set. I cut the Happy Birthday Circle die out of Custard Card.

I cut Sue's Star Flower Cluster out of Sky Blue, Lilac and Custard Card.
