Make A Wish

Inspiration

I got a request for a child's birthday card that could be used for girls or boys - I thought the design of this one could be reused with different colors for girls or boys - here's a blue one. The layout is from the Splitcoast Sketch challenge SC331.

Stamp the solid flame in yellow 3 times on white cardstock. Stamp the flame outline in black over the yellow, and cut the 3 flames out, leaving some at the bottom the adhere to the candle sticks. Attach the flames to the candles.

Sentiment

Cut and emboss a tag from the white paper, using the fancy tag die. Before removing the tag from the die, sponge blue ink on the areas at the ends of the tag. Stamp the sentiment in the center of the tag.

Assembly

Assembly is simple - just layer the colors and designer paper to match the sketch. Add the candles on the center blue mat. Adhere the tag sentiment below the candles.

Inside the Card

Mount the remaining dark blue panel inside the card, followed by the white panel. Stamp the sentiment on the white, and your done!
