Happy Day with Cake!

Hi Bloggers.

Hope you enjoyed the One Day Special Shows. I'm spending today getting my website orders sorted and packing the kits for my workshop with Leonie on Saturday.

Here's today's card -

I started by just cutting die #1 from Sue Wilson's Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set into a piece of Lilac Card. I cut Sue's Alphabet Grid Die out of Coconut White Card twice. I used one of the waste (well it's not really waste!) pieces to add to my background.

I made a frame using dies #2 and #4 from Sue's Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I added it to my background using Woodware Foam Tape, trimming away the excess using scissors. I made another frame out of Lilac Card using dies #3 and #4 from the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set and added it to my white frame using CS Glue. I matted onto 2 layers of Coconut White Card.
I added my letters for my sentiment cut using the Alphabet Grid Die - I have quite a collection of letters now!
I cut the elements from Sue's Make a Cake Die Set out of Coconut White, Lilac and Silver Shine Pearl Card. I added Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Markers to the flames on the candles.

Thanks for stopping by.

    A beautiful card.
    I was watching my recording of your 8pm show and loved the background you made. Also your explanation of how to extend the weaving background was brilliant, so simple when you know how.
