Blow Out the Candles and Eat Cake Card

Today I’m sharing another card I made using the Blow Out the Candles stamp set. I also used the coordinating Candles & Confetti Framelits Dies on this one. (You can buy them bundled together to save 10%!) I didn’t really pay much attention to this set at first, but now that I’ve been playing with it, I realize how much fun it is. I mean, look at all those adorable birthday candles on this card. Cute!

Here’s what I made:

Blow Out the Candles with Petal Promenade

The Blow Out the Candles stamp set (which is available in a bundle with the Candles & Confetti Framelits Dies to save 10%) has some great images, but my favorite is the sentiment that I used on today’s card. It’s one of those fonts that you can dress up or down, use on fancy cards or casual cards, “velvet or denim.” I think I’m somewhere in the middle here, with the sentiment surrounded by die cut ovals and the rich colors and design of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. What do you think?

Here’s what I made:
