Today’s card uses one of Sue Wilson’s Perspective collection dies – the Happy Birthday circle. The set comes with the little cupcake and candles so it is quite a useful one.I cut the die from coconut white card and honeydew card and used the outside coconut white with the inside in honeydew (the opposite piece I kept for a future card)
I mounted the circle onto a piece of honeydew card cut out with the Grace Frame die. I cut the Petite Peony cluster in coconut white and backed it with honeydew then mounted it on foam pads on each side of the frame. I inked through the the cupcake die with colour cloud ink to create the lines that represent the wrapper and I topped the cupcakes with iced snow to give them a little sparkle.
Todays post is a card that John Lockwood made a back in February, I decided to make one myself.
I cut out the outside die from the heart of heart die set and leaving it in place I embossed the dark card with the illusions embossing folder and then used some silver gilding wax over the top. I made the rest of it pretty much the same as Johns one.
