A Stepped Up Candle Card!!!

Yesterday, I shared the candle creations that can be made with the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set!!! Check that one out here! Today, I’m going to show another variation of the card and a stepped up candle card version!

For this card, I went with more feminine colors! Also, rather than using designer paper, I added some ribbon! This is just to show how to get the same look but with whatever you have on hand!!! Also, I added wicks and a glow with Wink of Stella!

I started with a Peek-A-Boo Peach card base! Next, I took a piece of Berry Burst (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the birthday greeting along the bottom in Berry Burst Ink! Again, be sure to start the greeting falling off the ends so that the greeting looks like it continues! Just above the greeting, I tied some Peek-A-Boo Peach Striped Ribbon around it. Next, I added this piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! I used those so that it would look smooth since the ribbon is on the lower end!

Finally, I took a piece of Whisper White (4-3/4″ x 2-1/2″) to stamp my candles on. I used the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and Berry Burst and Peek-A-Boo Peach Ink Pads. The candles were stamped starting in the middle and working my way to the edges. Also, I did them at an angle because stamping them perfectly straight and in line would have never happened! 🙂 The flames were stamped in Crushed Curry and then I added the little star burst border along the bottom in Berry Burst!

Now for the stepped up version!!! Using a Basic Black Marker, I added little wicks to each candle. Just a simple little black mark for each candle. To finish off each flame, I went over them with the Wink of Stella Pen for some shine! I love the little bit sparkle and shine it adds! Once I finished all of the stamping, I added this piece to the card front! Just perfect!!!

Happy Stampin’
