Shaving Foam & Pigment Stain Weave

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the weave on this one, I started by creating some Shaving Foam Backgrounds with Bluebell, Citrus Lime and Rose Pink CS Intense Pigment Stains. I cut the Intermediate Weaving Die out of the first generation print from the Shaving Foam, 3rd generation print and out of Coconut White Card twice. To fit the smallest frame possible from the Stitched Square Peg Board, you need to extend the weft. So, I cut an extra strip from my first generation background and another strip of Coconut White. I glued a Coconut White die cut to my first generation cut, offsetting it to fill in the gaps but dropping it down to leave a space at the top and the bottom.I then added my extra strips.

I added my other Coconut White Die Cut to my 3rd generation cut, offesetting it to fill in all the gaps. I cut it into pieces 2 strips wide and then wove the strips through my extended piece.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using dies #2 and #4 from the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set and added it to my woven background using 2mm Foam Tape trimming away the excess with scissors. I matted onto a couple of pieces of Coconut White Card.

I cut the Make a Cake die out of Coconut White Card, Silver Mirror Card and from my 3rd generation background. I coloured the candles using Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Markers.

I made my flowers from Coconut White and 1st generation background using the Pinwheel Floral Die Set and cut the leaves out of Coconut White Card using the same die set. I added an 8mm White Pearl to the centre of my flower.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm White Pearl to the corners of my frame.

Thanks for stopping by.
