Birthday Candle Card

Need to send a cheery birthday greeting? You can make this card quickly and with little fuss.

Polka-dots are an understated fun backdrop for the candles. A quick trip through the Big Shot with a Texturz Plate is all that's needed to start.

The candles are simply pieces of cardstock 5/8"x 2-1/4" in Melon Mambo, Pumkpin Pie and Wild Wasabi. Cranking them through the crimper adds texture and a "striped" look with ease.

Love the flame? It's a bird wing fro the Extra-Large Two-Step Bird Punch--cool, huh? The bright yellow is Daffodil Delight.

In case you don't know, the sentiment is from Party Hearty stamp set which I have shown a lot but not recently. Party Hearty is great for anything birthday. And that stamp fits perfectly with the large tag punch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
