Simple Alphabet Grid Card

Hi Bloggers.

Heading out early today to set up for my workshop with Leonie Pujol. It's going to be busy!

Here's a quickie card for today -

I started by cutting Sue Wilson's Alphabet Grid Die out of Coconut White Card. I put the letters away into a sectioned box and then added die #2 from Sue's Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set and cut.

I used another Alphabet Grid die cut as a mask and inked through it onto a square piece of Coconut White Card with Blue Lagoon CS Chalk Cloud using a Smoothie. I added my clean Alphabet Grid Die Cut, offsetting it slightly.

I cut one of the border dies from the Ecliptic Edger Die Set out of Coconut White Card 4 times and glued them to the back of my grid.

I matted onto Coconut White Card using CE Mounting Cushion, then to Duck Egg Card using CS Glue and them Coconut White Card using Mounting Cushion.

I added my sentiment from tiles cut using the Alphabet Grid out of Coconut White and Duck Egg Card.

I cut a candle out of Coconut White and Duck Egg Card using the Celebrations Shadow Box Die Set adding Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Markers.

Thanks for stopping by.
