Purple Candles Close Your Eyes & Make a Wish

This is the second card I made using My Favorite Things Make a Wish, this time using purple inks from Altenew and Gina K. Designs.

This stamp set has five candles all together in one stamp. In order to stamp them in different colors I used the coordinating die to cut them out of white cardstock and then inserted one cut out at a time into the negative space. This was such a quick and easy way to use different colors and not have the overlap onto the adjacent candle.

For this card I wanted to use all five candles and so I turned the orientation to landscape. I cute a scalloped rectangle from purple cardstock to compliment the colors of the candles, but didn’t like the way the candles got lost on the dark background, so I cut a scalloped oval from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment in purple ink at the bottom and adhered it to the purple rectangle. The candles were arranged on a slight curve and adhered with foam tape and then all were adhered to a side folding A2 cardbase with liquid glue.

The final embellishment was to add Crystal Stickles to the flames and the card was done.
