FS571 - Eat Cake

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Lisa (aka MaryLisaK).

I chose this card as my inspiration:

I focused on Lisa's:
-four-big-characters as focal point
-celebrate die cut

I changed:
-numbers to letters

I used my grid mat to line up my letters and then taped them together and cut them out of my front panel. I then blended distress ink onto another panel, to show through. I kept the little centres of the letters to add back in.

Now. I don't actually have an 'eat' die cut. (do you?!)  But if you look closely at that Essentials by Ellen Celebrate, the 'at' is together. I trimmed them out of the word, trimmed an 'e' and glued them onto my card front. Go take a closer look - you can hardly tell! I used a Quickie glue pen to adhere the thin die cuts. Its fine tip is perfect for delicate jobs like this.

I remember making one word from another before, Ardyth, and it's a good way to get what you need from you dies. The inked panel is exquisite.
