Make a Cake and Alphabet Grid

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by cutting the Alphabet Grid Die out of Coconut White Card. I filed the letters away in a box. I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using dies #2 and #4 from the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set. I added it to my grid using Woodware Foam Tape. I matted onto Slate Grey Card, securing the grid to the Grey Card with CS Glue at the cross sections. I then matted onto Baby Pink Card and another piece of Coconut White.

I cut the Make a Cake Die Set elements our of Coconut White, Baby Pink and Silver Mirror Card and coloured the candles with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Markers.

I added my sentiment made with tiles cut from Baby Pink and Coconut White Card using the Alphabet Grid Die (well, most were from my little collection in my box 😀).
