Make A Wish

We're fast approaching birthday season in this family.  From the first of September through mid-November the calendar reads birthday after birthday.  So building up the card stash is imperative at this point!  

This bright and cheerful birthday card, was created using the Birthday Candles Stamp and Die Set, and the Confetti Fun Stamp, from Fun Stampers Journey.

For today's card, I began by stamping a piece of Whip Cream card stock with the Confetti Fun stamp.  This stamp is sized at 1/2 of a card front, so you stamp once on the top of the card front, then rotate the stamp 180 degrees, and stamp the bottom.  I stamped in clear pigment ink, so that I could coat the card in gold embosing powder and have a fun, gilded, panel.

I stamped my candles, and the flames, onto a scrap piece of Whip Cream.  The candles have a matching die, however, the flames do not.  They are very simple to fussy cut however.  I added some wicks to the candles with a spare pen, and adhered the flames on.  I then used a waterbrush to add a little sparkle silk to each flame.

I die cut a piece of Lemon Drop with the scallop border die, and added a strip of Black Licorice on top.  The border was a little tall for what I wanted, so I used my trimmer to cut it down to size.  I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment onto Vellum and then assembled my layers.  The entire card front, was added to an A2 Whip Cream card base.
