Primary and Secondary Colors Happy Birthday Candles

I think candles make great masculine birthday cards, this one uses the primary and secondary color palette.  I stamped the different candles with Gina K. Designs ink and then colored them with Copic Markers.  I think it made a bright and colorful card.

I’ve had this cross-stitched rectangle die for years and rarely use it, but I really like it for masculine cards.  Since the sentiment die cut is from black cardstock I decided to mat the rectangle with black cardstock as well and like the way it tied everything together.
