Happy Thursday everyone! Today I have a bit of Miss Ink Stamps birthday inspiration to share with you. We all need birthday cards from time-to-time and this is a fun one you could customize with the number of candles or even a certain color scheme too.
For my card, I stamped the gnome fireman from Perfect Match and the two candles with flames – lots of candles! I colored it all with my copic markers and used the scan-n-cut to cut it all out.
I took an 4×5.25 inch piece of white cardstock and inked the bottom portion with tea dye and a teeny bit of gathered twigs distress oxide ink to create a cake. Then I inked up a scrap strip of white cardstock with kitsch flamingo and a bit of picked raspberry. I cut the edge of the pink with a Trinity Stamps Celebration Borders die that looks like cake frosting. When I was laying it all out I wanted the look of more candles so I stamped some in the background before layering the frosting on. I used liquid glue to adhere the frosting and then arranged the colored candles on top of that.
I added foam squares to my gnome fireman and popped him in place on the lower left corner of the panel. I die cut a ticket using the Newton’s Nook Framework dies and inked it up the same as the frosting before stamping my sentiment on it and popping it up too. Last, I added foam tape to the whole panel and added it to a white card base.
For finishing touches I added unicorn Stickles to the candle flames and glossy accents to the candles and gnome fireman.
Such a fun little card! I think it would be so fun to make one for a milestone birthday and have the exact number of candles too!
