Blow Out All The Candles

 Hello.  This was a tricky card for me. I know it looks simple, but if I'm not using stamps with animals, or people, then I struggle a bit. To help me out I used the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

The candles are all die-cuts, stuck together (I used some 'stick it' sheets to make this easier) and then adhered to a card panel, where I had already stamped the centre sentiment.  I just snipped off the excess bit of candle.

I added the scallop piece from a frame die cut, and some glossy accents on those flames.


  • concord and 9th - make a wish stamps and dies
  • ecoline real brush pens
  • glossy accents
  • mft dienamics stitched rectangle scallop edge
