Blowing Birthday Wishes Your Way

I decided to create a card with a row of candles from Technique Tuesday Many Candles stamped in rainbow colors.  I like the way it turned out.

I stamped the images with Distress Oxide Inks: Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Fired Brick/Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey4, R22; YR15, YR12; Y02, Y01; YR04, Y38, Y15.  I pulled out my Copic Markers to add some dimension to the edges (YG03, YG01; BG13, BG11; V17, V15, V12; RV13, RV11, RV10; R24, R22; YR15, YR12; Y02, Y01; YR04, Y38, Y15).

I used the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo to cut around the candles so that I could pop them up using 3M 1/2″ Scotch Tape.  I die cut a rectangle from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle.  I arranged the candles on the rectangle to determine where to stamp the sentiment, which is from My Favorite Things Make a Wish with Hero Hues India Ink Black.

Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the rectangle and it was adhered to a side folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the card was done.
