Celebrate with Candles

Welcome back!  Happy Friday.

Creating for a few challenges with impending deadlines.  A quick gender-neutral birthday card for Paper Players (#625), Sunday Stamps (#301), Just Add Ink (#638) and Seize The Birthday (#254).

Here is the result:



  • Case Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
  • Background: (4” x 5¼”) Fresh Freesia Dotted patterned piece of paper from the free Sale-a-bration Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper pack.
    • The word, Celebrate, from the retired Create with Friends stamp set was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink.
  • Decoration – Candles: Various Purple toned cardstock scraps from my Bin were die-cut with the Candle dies from the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies set and matched together.  The Flame die, also from the same set, was die-cut from a scrap of Calypso Coral cardstock.

All elements were adhered to the card base to resemble the sketch.  I like clean and simple cards especially for guys and this one works really well.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!

  3. I’ve never been partial to purples but I do love the idea of an ink color namend Blackberry. Puts a whole new spin on the hue. This is just lovely Jolanda. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Seize the Birthday challenge blog!
