Birthday Candles, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Supplies Needed: Basic Black Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, scraps of color cardstock, ribbon, Embossing Folder, Decorative Label Punch and Bird Punch

I cut strips 1/2 inch by 2-3/4 inches in various colors and then ran them all through the Big Shot in an embossing folder. You can pick whichever one you have handy or your favorite. I used the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder. I then started placing them on the card. I placed the 2 end candles down and then the middle one and then filled in. This helped me with spacing each of them! I used my Basic Black Marker (pen tip) to make the wicks. Then using So Saffron cardstock, I punched out the wing from the Bird Punch! I brushed the rounded (bottom) part of the flame with my Sponge Daubers and Pumpkin Pie ink. I adhered each of them to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back. Then I took my Dazzling Details (love this because it adds bling without the powder going EVERYWHERE) and added a little to the tips of each of the flames. I did this after assembly so it could be set aside to dry for a bit. The greeting is from the Bring On The Cake stamp set and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. Then I punched another Decorative Label in Basic Black, cut it in half long ways and adhered it to my other punched piece. This gives the perfect little layering affect. LOVE IT! The little red dots bordering my greeting were created with my Real Red Marker….just dot dot dot dot and a million more dots. 🙂 I hope you have enjoyed this technique for making a amazingly adorable card with lots of scraps!!! Try it out yourself and send it to me! I would love to see what you have created!

Happy Stampin’
